    Summary of Application Experience

    12/23/14: I don't even know where to begin... I am so, so, so happy to have been accepted by my top choice school on my first cycle only 3 days after my interview!! With my GPA, it was so surprising. But I am so happy and thankful.

    MCAT of 34 really helped

    4. Free Clinic Nurse, Scribe, ECG Tech
    5. Chief ED Scribe

    Just so happy and grateful. I could not have done it without the numerous people that supported me like my classmates, my awesome professors, mentors and people in my personal life, and my family. While I recognize that I absolutely could not have done it without God and so many other people, I am proud of myself and the journey I have taken and the distance I have traveled. I am truly thankful to MU's entire office of medical education and the admissions committee and confident that I will make an excellent physician for the people of Missouri. While I may seek a competitive specialty (though still very undecided -- really like psych for ex), I would like to have a private practice in rural MO and perform charity work at free clinics in the rural parts of the state.
