    Summary of Application Experience

    Campbell University: Applied 10/09/2013, II 12/04/2013, Interview 01/13/2014, Accepted 01/15/2014! Great school! A newer school that will surely make a great name for itself. Would have attended had it not been for my OU-HCOM acceptance.


    Stressful application season but I am very happy with the results. I will be attending my top choice medical school. Never in a million years would I have thought this would have been possible when I was applying. My advice is to apply when you are ready and when you are confident with your application. Do not submit any earlier. If needed take a couple years off after undergrad to explore life and grow as a person. I took two years off in between and I'm so grateful that I did. I learned more about myself in this two years than I did during all five years of undergrad (so I took an extra year to graduate get off my back :)). Apply only when you have the grades, a decent MCAT score, and experience. Another thing that I learned from this application season is that applying to medical school does not revolve around your MCAT score. I took the MCAT multiple times with my highest score being a 25 and I ended up getting into one of the best osteopathic schools (arguable the best) in the country. It truly is about the overall picture.

    Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor ;)
