Summary of Application Experience
7/15/14: received my MCAT score. To be honest, I am happy with my score. I studied the best I could for VR, but VR was the section I was most worried about; my goal was at least a 7. Still working on secondaries, so only time will tell. Just optimistic about the whole process. 11/18/14: Haven't heard anything since my invite from NYMC....Pre-match started last Saturday, so hopefully I get into Texas A&M; I really enjoyed the environment and the people. I also hope that hope is not all lost to get an another Texas interview before interview season is over.
2/9/2015 Current GPA: 3.1/3.41 I'm going to be an aggie this fall! Still can't believe I'm going to be a doctor! So grateful. Excited but nervous. Honestly, I can wait till med school- must enjoy the remaining time I have left before it all starts up again. This process was nerveracking as ever, but I'd just say to be patient and give it your best. Also, Update the schools with grades, etc. I updated tmdsas with my grades b4 they had to submit their final match list- idk if it helped, but I'm glad I submitted my fall grades. Good luck to you all! 5/26/15 Graduated from college 2 weeks ago with a 3.45 GPA and enjoying the rest of my summer until school starts at the end of July. Grateful for the opportunity and it was def. an interesting experience.

Summary of Experience:
Really nice school; was supposed to arrive there at 9AM monday, but didn't until midnight. Delayed flights, cancellations---it's hard to get there, but it's really nice once you get there. There's basically no traffic over there. Plus, it was snowing a little when we arrived that night.
Summary of Experience:
I matched! I was so excited! It was my 1st ranked, after TT- Bryan/CS is so much closer and drivable, whereas it's difficult to get to Lubbock from here. Can't wait till med school- actually, I can, lol. I want to treasure every second before my life becomes even more hectic. :)
