    Summary of Application Experience

    Hello! If you are applying to medical school, I hope you will find this page useful. More useful though is Student Doctor Network ( www.studentdoctor.net ) I found it to be a great help during the interview season.

    SR: Secondary Received | SS: Secondary Submitted | C: Complete | II: Interview Invite | IA: Interview Attended | A: Accepted |
    R: Rejected | WL: Waitlist | W: Withdrew

    ------ Some Advice ------
    FINISH EVERYTHING EARLY!
    -I had to wait on my LORs anyway to be complete w/ AMCAS, but I did not realize that I could find and start working on the secondary essays before I was verified. I wish I had joined SDN sooner! (SDN is where you can find the secondaries)
    -Also, I should have started writing my personal statement earlier, as I was a bit rushed to turn it in. I considered starting it in December, but still foolishly waited until June.
    -when traveling for an interview, stay with a medical student the night before. It's not only cheaper (& more fun), but very helpful in getting to know about the school.
    -Use SDN to prep for interviews
