  • Brief Profile: First, I want to thank God that I made it to the point where I could finally click submit on my AMCAS application. This has been a long journey, with a few bumps in the road, so I am incredibly grateful to have made it to this point. I also want to thank my family and friends for their continued love and support. Finally, whenever I had feelings of doubt I would read through mdapplicants profiles as a source of hope. I hope that the end result of my profile serves the same purpose for future prospective applicants in need of a pick-me-up!
