    Summary of Application Experience

    I didn't get my MCAT score until the end of May, and so I was holding out for that before even deciding whether or not to apply this cycle. (I was preparing as if I were, though. I made sure to get my personal statement done in enough time to see my adviser before I graduated and no longer had that resource available.) Even though I had prepared to apply to more than two schools--I had picked out about 10-12 by April and even started compiling secondary essay questions to work on--I decided to only apply to my in-state schools because those were my top choices. If I hadn't been admitted to either of those schools, I would have re-applied the following cycle with a broader scope. It was a really risky plan, and it luckily didn't come back to bite me, but something I definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone else.
