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.
