    Summary of Application Experience

    Applied to a large list of schools (35 to be exact), because I knew that getting into medical school is a tough process. Each of the schools I applied to was one that I could see myself going to/a school I would've been excited about going to. Looking back, might have decrease1d this number a bit just because secondary season was quite taxing, but have learned a lot from the experience so far.

    The cycle so far has been an emotional one - from the stress of completing secondaries, to the excitement of interview invitations, to the disappointment from rejections, to the awe of visiting schools, to the joy from my first acceptance - grateful that I will be matriculating in medical school in 2016 and looking forward to the rest of the cycle.
