    I excluded my home state, in state schools, and ethnicity for the sake of anonymity.

    My very low GPAs leave me an underdog despite what I think are above average and unique EC's and excellent MCAT. I'm hoping for the best! I will certainly reapply next cycle (with an improved undergraduate GPA) if necessary. I suppose I will fill in dates for everything (complete, II invites, etc) at the end of the cycle, and if I get accepted somewhere.

    Summary of Application Experience

    11/8/2016: Very disheartened at this point. Only one interview which resulted in a wait list. Sitting on 4 rejections. Still have to hear back from 20 schools, but I think a good chunk of them reject at the very end of the cycle. Re-application appears to be a very real possibility at this point. I do not look forward to re-writing my PS and secondaries, but you gotta do what you gotta do. That being said, I am cautiously optimistic about receiving a few more IIs, and potentially getting off Netters wait list.

    1/13/2016. No interview invites since my first one at the end of Aug. Low GPA is lethal! Itll be higher when I re-apply by about .1 - hopefully thatll help a bit. I think my application will be stronger in a lot of ways this year.

    2/24/2016. Recently got an interview! Praying it works out.
    With my stats I was ultimately accepted to the University of Missouri School of Medicine.
