    Summary of Application Experience

    Took MCAT in early June, then flew across the world to conduct some social sciences research, while trying to fill out AMCAS. Verified on 7/25. Applied to 20 schools; gave up on 1 secondary.
    12/1: Had gotten 6 interviews so far, attended 3, declined 1 after 1 acceptance in state (closer to my family is a huger factor because we just moved to the US < 10 years ago), 2 more to go in January. Beyond thankful but still hoping for some more good news!
    12/4: II from UNC!!!!! MADE MY DAY!
    12/18: II from Duke! Am I dreaming or what? So awesome to get this one because of all those secondary essays :D
    1/17/18: missed 2 phone calls from UM, no voicemail! Received the acceptance email the next day on 1/18 for MD/MPH!!! LOVE the MD/MPH program and the beach. The only downside is non Pass/Fail :(
    1/31/2018: Once again missed the call from UM because I was driving and jamming to music. Someone left a voicemail this time, and I got in the MD program, too! Hip hip Hooray!
    2/20/2018: BEST DAY OF MY LIFE. UNC ACCEPTANCE 20 days after interviewing. Actually got the email invitation to second look before getting a call or an acceptance email, so was very doubtful. But I called the admissions office to confirm. Got the call on 2/21, and the acceptance email on 2/22. LOL each time the excitement got less and less but then it went up again as I thought about going to school here. Very much likely will attend here!!!!
