    11/10/17 Update: All 3 of my interviews so far have featured very friendly administrations and student bodies. Students have seemed very happy at all three schools as well. The one traditional interview I had (at USUHS) went better than any of the MMIs I had (though I still believe I did well on MMIs). I just dont feel like the MMI gives interviewers a chance to get to know applicants. The concern about interviewer bias in traditional interviewers is very real though, and I can say that I was lucky to have interviewers who I vibed with.

    11/28/17: First acceptance at SUNY Upstate! Loved the school at interview day.

    2/21/18: Accepted to Quinnipiac!

    3/7/17: I find it absurd that I havent yet heard back from 12 schools. Crazy process.
