    Summary of Application Experience

    7/18: Submitted AMCAS much later than I intended. Now we play the waiting game...

    8/14: AMCAS verified!!!

    8/18: Added Drexel and Ohio State

    9/20: Added Mt. Sinai and Mayo

    9/25: First Interview Invite! Thanks Wayne. Interview set for 10/20.

    10/11: Invite from Ohio State. Will be driving down to Columbus for 12/18 interview.

    10/16: First rejection. UChicago. One of my top choices.

    10/19: Second rejection. Mayo. Getting a little worried. I might add more safety schools just in case.

    10/20: Interviewed at Wayne State today. It was really laid back, not stressful at all. I'll either hear back next Wednesday (10/25) or on 11/30.

    10/23: Another rejection. Georgetown.

    10/25: First acceptance! Wayne State! Time to start withdrawing some applications...

    12/21: Haven't updated in a while, but just got deferred at Ohio State. This really bummed me out because after visiting the campus and talking to the students and faculty, I thought it would be a perfect place for me to go. Oh well...
