    Summary of Application Experience

    I hope my page really helps out other students who are in the same situation as I was when I applied. I was extremely worried about my low MCAT score (28). I thought I would be doomed to having to attend a DO school (nothing wrong with that, but not right for me!). However, I decided to take my chances and apply with the 28 and not retake the MCAT just to see what would happen. I had a 4.00 GPA and plenty of research and community service and medical exposures, so the only real thing possibly holding me back was my MCAT score. Thankfully, everything turned out better than I could have ever possibly imagined! I went on two interviews to schools I never imagined I would attend and ended up leaving very impressed. Word of advice: don't put all your eggs in one basket. You may say that you've always seen yourself attending "So and So University" and then go on an interview to a different school and completely fall in love with and realize that is where you were meant to be! I am soooo happy with the results of my application season! I am so fortunate to have received multiple acceptances and gotten to choose where I would attend, even though it ended up being a much more difficult decision than I could have ever imagined! I truly fell in love with two schools, but I am so excited to be starting at UA Phoenix this summer! Please message me with any questions you have regarding your application season, and I would love to help answer!
