    Summary of Application Experience

    Some information on stats and demographics is false, to maintain anonymity. LizzyM is ~71 with a good amount of research and teaching experience. I've found it helpful to read about our predecessors' experiences, so I'll try to update as the cycle progresses. Also, thanks mdapps for keeping me on track!

    5/2015-6/2015: Transcripts sent
