    Summary of Application Experience

    Applied to a lot, took a long time to get interviews, currently waiting for a few more decisions.

    First interview invite came in late August, first interview in September. Then some sprinkled throughout November, December, January, February, and March.

    Protip: Don't leave glaring, red-underlined spelling mistakes in the essays you submit.

    I spent so much money. So much money.
