    Summary of Application Experience

    All secondaries were submitted within two weeks of receipt.

    Also applied to Thomas Jefferson (complete: 7/23/2015 rejected 4/6/2016), Western Michigan (did not receive secondary), and Quinnipiac (complete 7/3/2015 rejected: 3/3/2016).

    I believe there were a number of reasons why I received only two interviews. The greatest being my institutional actions. My average extracurricular activities, my average overall GPA, and also the quality of my secondary applications dropping as I did more were all factors as well.
