    Summary of Application Experience

    Long and full of surprises is how I would summarize my experience. I'm glad I took it one step of time, had a good bit of friends to keep me sane, and alcohol (jk). I'm just very grateful that I get to become a doctor. I also applied in two waves - one at the end of July - and then again in September. That second wave of schools I kind of said just aim for everything and applied to USUHS, Georgetown, Harvard, and Hopkins. I'm so glad I applied because there were a ton of rejections and many way before the interview but that I got an interview at Harvard and Hopkins and will be going to Hopkins in the all is amazing to me.
