    Summary of Application Experience

    I ended up withdrawing from schools to which I was waitlisted because I had already been accepted somewhere else and did not want to go to a school that thought of me a back up to a student they would rather have. Perhaps the biggest lesson I've learned by applying to medical school is that this process is pretty random and seldom make much sense.

    Also, it costs a lot of money, definitely during the interview process, but it was worth the experience (duh! haha). I applied as early as I could and sent back secondaries as quickly as possible. My goal was to get accepted somewhere on October 15 so I wouldn't have to worry for the rest of the year and it worked out. My advice is apply as early as you can... and relax!
