Good ECs that I will probably describe later in the cycle. Demographic info probably wrong. State schools not listed.

Summary of Experience:
First rejection. This definitely stings a bit, especially being so early in the cycle. I'm optimistic that I'll get into at least one school I prefer over Case, though, so hopefully in the end this rejection won't matter.
Summary of Experience:
I answered one of my interview questions a little too honestly. From the look on my interviewers' faces, I could tell this was a mistake. I'm not sure if this was the main reason I was passed over on every acceptance date, but I'm sure it contributed. Destined for the waitlist or (more likely) a rejection. That's fine, though, because I couldn't see myself attending Emory over Pitt.
