    I am not as anonymous as I could be, but I think this website is very helpful for future applicants so I am okay with sharing this stuff. Some demographics are changed. I might post my personal statement at the end of the cycle.

    I graduated from a private liberal arts college and started a research fellowship in 2011. I applied to mostly research-focused schools because I want to perform clinical research as a physician. In terms of area, I mostly applied to schools north of the Mason-Dixon but I am open to living in the Midwest or California.

    I started this cycle not even sure I would apply until next year. My MCAT score was not as high as I wanted but I decided to give it a shot anyway. My stuff was finally marked complete in late August and then interview invites came anywhere from 3 weeks to 3+ months afterward. I attribute my success thus far to a stable GPA, good LORs, a lot of research experience, and an interesting background (low income, single parent family... I worked multiple jobs throughout high school and college to help out at home).

    11/19/12-- First acceptance to one of my top choice schools! Now I won't feel as much pressure going into these other interviews. :)
    1/11/13- accepted to BU and Maryland! Feels good, man!
