    Summary of Application Experience

    Overall thoughts on my journey to medical school:
    JFC I have been stressing since tenth grade about every little grade and "how I will look" on paper. In doing so, I probably missed out on a lot of opportunities to pursue what I'm passionate about. I only figured this out just as I was leaving college. If you want to get into a medical school, just do the minimum requirements. Check your boxes. Do alright in your classes and on your tests. If you want to get into a top school, do all of the above, but then choose one thing that you want to pursue with all your heart and be the best you can at it. Also kill the MCAT.
