    Summary of Application Experience

    08/14: Was kind of hoping to have an II by now... is it time to panic yet?!
    09/15: Dartmouth interview earlier this month, and a UMass II just now. Feeling a bit better. Didn't stop me from adding three more schools this morning, but that was before the UMass II. (I think doing so makes me feel like I have a modicum of control in this process =P )
    10/20: Three interviews in two weeks... well that was exhausting. Glad to have a bit of a breather before Maryland next month. Each interview seems to get easier and easier once you get into a rhythm! Still hoping for some love from some of my top choices, but am feeling a lot better now that 'statistically' my chances of getting an acceptance with 5 Interviews is fairly high. Starting to learn what I really want in a school, which is both good and bad depending on how decisions turn out.
    11/11: Officially going to be a doctor as of a few weeks ago! Getting an acceptance was so emotional- years of waiting and uncertainty instantly replaced with relief! Two more interviews scheduled for the next few weeks and still waiting to hear from 10+ schools (I'd say 5 of them are still realistic at this point... I'm remaining hopeful for my top choice to realize how perfect we are for each other... but even if that doesn't happen, I have a GREAT option in Milwaukee!).
    1/12: Three acceptances... oh my goodness. The relief I felt after MCW was intense... now I'm just so EXCITED to see all of these years of stress and worry finally paying off. The personal phone call from Maryland was a nice touch!!
