    Final update (July 2017):
    I didn't expect this whole application process to be as stressful as it was, and I'm glad it's over. In hindsight, I feel like I would've had more luck with the decisions if I'd been complete earlier (which was not possible last cycle as I took the MCAT in July last year) or if I'd taken a gap year to improve my ECs. I also regret not writing my secondaries ahead of time - a lot of them were pretty bad since I was writing and submitting 5-6 of them a day in early September. Another thing I should've done is prepared more thoroughly for my interviews - by February I wasn't prepping at all. Overall, I'm happy and excited to have gotten into medical school and am ready to move on!
