"Non-trad" applicant (although I feel being 2+ years out of undergrad during the app cycle is becoming more and more common) with a few unique life experiences that I'd like to think will bring a fresh perspective.

Summary of Application Experience
8/29 - still working on finishing up some secondaries, so the "completed" list should grow in the next few days.
9/2 - West Virginia interview invite! First II, so excited! Also received the small pool email from MCW today, I'm hoping for more good news in the coming weeks!
9/19 - first rejection today, but it was Pritzker, a super reach, and I'm not at all surprised. Looking forward to hearing back from more schools as the cycle continues.
9/26 - put on hold at GWU, just one little fish in a giant ocean over there haha. Hoping to hear back from more schools soon, and crossing my fingers for good news!
10/29 - put on hold until Spring at Drexel. This month has been a roller coaster. I never knew waiting could be so stressful! Trying to stay positive and just hoping that November brings some happy emails.
12/17 - Waitlisted at WVU today, I LOVE this school, crossing my fingers for an acceptance at some point!
1/15 - All silent for many months (except for a couple of rejections) until today! Second II for Rosalind Franklin, so excited to head to (North) Chicago for a few days! ;)
2/05 - Really enjoyed my interview day at Rosy this week, but also received rejection from Quinnipiac, oh well, we'll see what happens.
2/06 - ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!! Just got accepted off waitlist to WVU, SO EXCITED! :D I will probably matriculate regardless of any other news I receive (with the exception of potentially Colorado...)
2/17 - II from Colorado! So good to finally hear from my state school!
