Summary of Application Experience
Submitted 6/7 ~2pm (had to nap a bit after my final). Applying with a very broadly in hopes of a successful cycle. MCAT 1 9/12/15: 127/127/128/128 - 510 MCAT 2 1/23/16: 127/127/127/126 - 508 O_o All apps submitted on 6/7 with the exception of UM and BU, which were submitted a several days later.
Things I've learned so far (not in order of importance): -Applying is super expensive. Bill to a credit card with good point redemption so you can save a little on interview travel -At least pre-write your challenge, diversity, and gap year activity essay (if applicable). Keep it under 1000 characters. -Don't withdrawal from schools you don't think you qualify for. Call admissions to be sure otherwise don't bother completing the secondary -Use a passport photo in interview wear for your picture upload. Torso shot wearing a collared shirt in front of a blank wall works in a pinch. Smile! -Use Interfolio for LORs. Easier for your writers to upload and they can check for letterhead/handwritten signature if you call. -While no essay secondaries might seem like a money grab at first, they soon turn into a blessing in disguise. TY NY schools. -Get a hard copy of your official transcript. You'll be referencing it a lot. -The submit in 2 week "rule" seems easy at first when you only have one secondary. It gets much harder when you have 6. -Apply to more schools than you think necessary. Some schools will unexpected requirements which you can't/don't want to complete. Worse comes worse, it is possible to take a pre-req before matriculation. -Double check the location/dates of your interview before booking your hotel/flights. Especially if there are multiple campuses -Just because a interview is conversational, doesn't mean you cant use it to highlight your accomplishments and what makes you unique. If someone else can give a similar answer, it probably isnt the best answer you can give. -Practice for MMI. While you can't prep for every possible scenario, you can practice responding to MMI style questions and refresh on medical ethics. I found Dr. Desai's MMI guidebook, UOttawa ethics guide and UW ethics guide to be helpful.
