    Reflection (3/10): Despite not applying to any safety schools (only applied to the 16 listed here), the cycle turned out well ^_^ From my post-interview acceptance rates, it seems that I'm pretty good at MMIs, but not so great (READ: bad) at traditional interviews :/ Hahaha, it is what it is. I can't complain given how my cycle went. Even though I write this feeling pretty down about the last couple decisions this past week (2 waitlists and 1 rejection), I am grateful for having the opportunity to interview at amazing schools and being fortunate enough to attend one. To future applicants: medical school admissions are a black box, and don't try to make sense of it - what will happen will happen. That doesn't mean you shouldn't feel sad at not being admitted - let these feelings take their course, however long it takes. Just remember that these decisions don't define you. It is not the school that makes the person, but rather what the person makes of what the school offers :)
