    Summary of Application Experience

    Submitted later than I originally had planned. Got married in May and things never work out like you plan. :)

    Wish me luck!

    UPDATE 2013
    I never heard from the majority of my schools besides being out right rejected from CCOM. Most just kept me hanging on. After my acceptance to KCUMB though, I didn't care. :)
