    Summary of Application Experience

    1/1/2015 - New Year Update: Very happy with how cycle has turned out. Probably applied to too many schools though, which ended up being a big waste of money. 15-20 would have been the sweet spot.

    6/4/2015 - One year update: My cycle turned out really well; I got into some great schools and was lucky to be offered some really great scholarships. Success!
