    2- Could only afford to apply to a few schools due to said finances
    3- Aware that my list has a few super reaches, but if this does happen to be my one shot, I'm surely not going to pre-screen myself! Won't deal with "what-if's" later.

    Summary of Application Experience

    Try your best to not apply nearly did me in.

    With that said, don't lose hope if you aren't verified until's possible you will get invites in February, March, and even April, and those can turn into acceptances! Don't think you're interviewing for the waitlist unless they expressly tell you so.

    So incredibly happy I'm going to medical school!!!

    Feel free to message me if you have questions!
