Summary of Application Experience
I applied two years ago (summer 2004) as a naive applicant with a relatively low MCAT score. My score is better now, I have more work/life experience, and I'm in NOLA doing a Masters in Cell Bio! I'm excited for the process this time and look forward to starting med school soon!
