    Summary of Application Experience

    Gpa rounded for anonymity.
    I was ready for the application process really early on... until my transcript got lost in the mail. A second one was finally just verified, so my application is a little bit later than I was hoping for.

    Secondaries received most places within a week besides all the UC's and vanderbilt.
