    My ECs are nothing too special. Lots of volunteering with disadvantaged populations, minimal research, club leadership roles, several jobs, and some shadowing. I think what helped me get a decent amount of interviews was my application had a nice "theme" that my personal statement highlighted.

    Summary of Application Experience

    Took my MCAT in mid-July (writing score is not real) and didn't submit my AMCAS until shortly after the exam. I wasn't verified until 8 weeks later, which was extremely frustrating due to the AMCAS delay. Applying EARLY cannot be stressed enough!

    I pre-wrote all my secondaries and submitted them almost within a week when I was verified in mid-September. I received most of my interview invites after Christmas. Even if you apply a little late like I did, it's not too big of a deal after all so don't panic!

    Update letters are golden. I sent update letters to 7 schools in December/January after not hearing anything for months and consequently received 5/7 interviews from these schools.
