  • Brief Profile: My hope is that this can help people going through the application / interview process. I found it extremely valuable to read other applicants' experiences on mdapps and so I hope you find my notes on post-interview impressions helpful!

    I also hope that this profile can give confidence to others - the application process is not all about numbers. I was extremely stressed and worried going into this cycle about my MCAT score (particularly my low VR score); I thought it would for sure affect how many interview invites I received and kill my chances at any top or mid-tier med school. I hope my profile helps ease your mind if you are at all worried like I was - schools really do review your application holistically!
