    Summary of Application Experience

    Applied pretty late despite advice from my brother (linkvein) to avoid making his same mistake.

    My school choices were limited by the fact that I used AP credits to satisfy genchem and physics requirements. Overall, I think my application was solid but unexceptional, and I am happy with my results given that I had no publications at the time of application and no clinical volunteering.
