    Summary of Application Experience

    07/16/15: Received secondaries from UNC and UCSF today, which means I've gotten secondaries from all 23 of the schools I applied to! Now, just 11 more to go before I'm done :)

    07/30/15: DONE WITH SECONDARIES!!! What a huge weight lifted off my shoulders after a stressful July of essay-writing. I'm excited to take a few days to relax before I start preparing for interviews. On to the next step of this long process!

    08/16/15: First interview coming up this week... going to full-time prepare over the next 3 days. Excited for the opportunities!

    09/10/15: Additional letter of recommendation from summer research mentor uploaded to AMCAS, sent to all schools for which I completed a secondary application.

    10/21/15: Completed interviews at 12 schools, withdrew from 2 others, and waiting to hear back from 7 remaining. I currently have no outstanding interviews to attend, so I could possibly be done! The past 2 months have consisted of many flights, uber rides, and one-night hotel stays, but I have greatly enjoyed visiting different medical schools.

    12/21/15: Sent updated transcript with Fall 2015 grades to all schools whom I have not yet heard back from.

    01/31/16: Sent update of accepted publication to all schools whom I have not yet heard back from.

    02/12/16: DONE WITH LAST INTERVIEW! SUCH A GREAT FEELING. Now just have to wait a few more agonizing weeks before I hear back from all the remaining schools.

    05/03/16: Matriculating at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the fall!
