    Summary of Application Experience

    I don't know how well things will turn out after interviews but I hope my luck so far will encourage other internationals and late applicants in the future! My key point of advice is don't apply until you are confident in your application, even if that means being a bit late. If you are an MD/PhD applicant, I suggest that you seek a quality research experience where you really get to independently lead a project.

    P.S. My list is top-heavy because I only applied to schools that accept international students for their MSTP and some MD-only schools that have great research opportunities.
