    Summary of Application Experience

    This is an absolutely ridiculous, insane process. The admissions committees are way too arbitrary. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins in November and Yale in February - how was I not 'good enough' to interview at a single one of my state schools? It just does not make sense. Anyways, I'm excited about Keck and happy that I have a spot in a medical school, which is more than some can say.

    Accepted to Hopkins in June although they sent me the 'you are rejected but you're officially on the waitlist because no one who interviews is ever rejected' letter in January. Called Yale to tell them the news, and got in the same day off the waitlist. Now I'm at Yale - the best medical school in the world! So happy!
