    Summary of Application Experience

    Just starting AMCAS and TDMSAS. Took April MCAT, awaiting scores. First choice is BCM. -6/8

    Woah, haven't updated in a loooong time. Will do tomorrow. -2/11

    So far so good. 10 invites for interviews out of 17 applied. (I'm surprised because I felt my GPA and MCATs were on the low side.) Unfortunately I declined 3 interviews because of financial reasons and time constraints. They weren't my top choices, though, so I'm not too bummed out.

    So, I was invited to Mt. Sinai's second look weekend, but I have yet to receive an acceptance or waitlist. I'm assuming waitlist for now.

    Only waiting for GWU now.

    So I got waitlisted at Cornell, Mt. Sinai, and GWU. I've already started housing plans with a roommate in San Antonio, so I'm going to go ahead and go the Texas path and withdraw from these East Coast schools. Guess I've had enough time over here; time to get on back to Texas. (plus it's WAY WAY CHEAPER!)
