    Summary of Application Experience

    Cycle went way better than expected. I think my process is a pretty good example of how anything can happen. I thought I was going to be Dead on Arrival with a 9 verbal score and considered retaking the new MCAT, but a few top programs gave me a shot and it worked out. UCSF was a total moonshot--especially being from out of state. I submitted a LOI in mid-April disguised as an update (they aren't open to outright LOIs) got the best news of my life two weeks later.
