    Summary of Application Experience

    Kind of a crazy application cycle. Got back to the States late 2014, took organic and biochemistry, then sat for the MCAT in August 2015. Basically filled out and submitted all the secondaries within a week of the scores being released in mid-September, then flew out to start my PCRV position in Africa in October.

    Radio silence and rejections until Dec, when I got an II to UConn. Scheduled and bought plane tickets, then emailed all the schools still considering me since this would be my only chance to get back to the US for interviews. II's from Netter and Case. Flew back for two weeks and did the three interviews. I heard back early February, withdrew from everywhere except Case once I got my Netter acceptance. All-in-all still reeling and impressed that all that actually worked.
