    Summary of Application Experience

    Pre-write your secondaries, and remember to apply early. Most importantly, remain sane during the cycle, it's a wild ride and you're going to need your hobbies. Enjoy what free time you have left.

    Also, often times people will say interviews are "conversational" but do not be fooled--you're there to sell yourself, so do that. Have a conversation, but remember, you're ultimately trying to convince this person that you should be admitted.
