    Summary of Application Experience

    Applied broadly, to ~40 schools accepting international applicants. Secondaries submitted throughout June/July, with a few trailing into early August.

    crazy blessed this cycle, esp as a low GPA international applicant. tell your story as well as you can on that amcas app. really reflect and convey all the reasons you want to be a doctor, and what you want to do with medicine. i think this is a super underrated part of the app, esp bc it cant be quantified as such.
