    Summary of Application Experience

    didn't shadow until the summer I submitted my app

    overthought the app and didn't include my real "most meaningful experiences" because I thought it'd be too redundant after talking about them in my personal statement. instead chose my next top 3 "most meaningful". probably hurt my chances at some places.

    had a IA for drinking I honestly forgot about AFTER submitting

    after this third realization I thought my app was doomed, but updated schools via email - no problem, was never asked about it in interviews. got some interviews later and was a little reassured.
