    Summary of Application Experience

    DGSOM...LA...surreal.

    some advice: apply widely and get some physician LORs. Although I am not sure if lacking these aspects of my app were detrimental to my cycle, I believe they are significant contributors. I got into one of my top picks eventually, so it wasn't a complete washout, but I certainly aged a decade receiving rejections until LA came with some good news. Good luck to those who come afterwards!
