    Summary of Application Experience

    08/09 AMCAS sent...yes, I procrastinated here..but I was beyond broke:(
    08/15 Found out all my LOR's are in and my pre-med composite letter is done..thank goodness:)

    09/01 I think I've called AMCAS a million times..neurosis is bad..

    09/02 Finally got the Columbia'S secondary done after REWRITING my essay 4 times!

    09/08 Added Univ of VT and Albany to replace some schools that I may not complete secondaries for. Just saw the stats for NJMS...whopping 30 out of 170 OOS accepted. Looks very promising for me..

    09/20 Finally verified..woo hoo!!!!

    09/22 Submitted Cornell's secondary. Finally complete at Yale and Columbia. Received a load of secondaries..looks like my weekend will be very busy! Also sent MCW..but waiting on my second LOR from my graduate program coordinator..MCW wanted two letters! He's on vaca right now..so I'm trying really hard not to stalk him for the letter.

    09/24 I dont know whats going on with Yale. I checked my status page for an update but it said they havent yet received my check, certification page, and letters of recommendation. I sent them over two weeks ago. I'm just hoping that they havent got to my stack yet and the mail didnt get lost!

    09/27 Temple and Jefferson down...many many more to go:)

    10/3 Aaaaahhhhhh! First interview at UPitt!

    10/6 Gosh..Im so poor:( Just bought my ticket to Pitt..300 hondo down the tank. Productive day..finished and sent Creighton, Dartmouth, and Albert Einstein. Called Columbia and I'm finally 'verified' there..don't really know what that means, but I should be complete this week. yay:)

    10/9 Received completes at several schools today!

    10/10 Finally got the Loyola secondary in the mail. I really don't understand this snail mail stuff nowadays. It's due Nov 3 so I really need to start working on that. Good news..finally done with the Life in Discovery essay of RFU!! yay:) Also done with UNSOM secondary. Proving my residency in this state is already driving me crazy!!!

    10/18 Haven't updated this in a while, but I got another interview yesterday..at UVM. It's nice that I have visited the campus before and it's gorgeous! I don't know how bad winter is going to be though:) I really have to finish off Loyola, USC, and Case western...these are my goals for manana!

    10/22 Sometimes I wonder why I procrastinate on some of these secondaries! I just finished Case's two essays and it didn't take me that long to sit and write the whole thing, but it took me forever to just start writing them!! Anyways, I submitted CWRU today. Need to finish Loyola's then maybe USC.

    10/31 Just keep swimming...just keep swimming...swimming swimming swimming..what do we do, we swim!! Drowning in my loyola secondary. It's taking me forever!

    11/09 Just got back from UPitt....omg is all I have to say. This place is amazing! I really hope I get in here. Got an invite from GW yesterday...I'm so friggin excited I can't control myself!

    11/13 Gosh, It has been a bad day. Case and MCW rejections both in!

    12/4 Brrrrr! Vermont is freezin *shaking uncontrollably*

    12/21 OMG!! I got accepted to UVM yesterday:) This is a complete shock not only because they were REALLY fast to get back to us, but I really thought my interview went really bad! I called home right after and just balled my eyes out because I thought I lost it! But I am so excited, although I'm really sick right now. Oh yeah...got an invite to Jefferson whooop whoop!

    01/04 Just got back from GW interview and all I have to say is that I'm in awe of what goes on at that school. By far the most impressive of what is offered. I heart GWU:)

    02/03 Just getting ready to go to Jeff's interview...actually excited to see this school and see what everyone's raving about! Got albany's invite the other night but I don't think I'll be able to attend that one financially. So, i'll be typing up my withdrawal this weekend.

    Just talked to my faculty interviewer at UNSOM couple days ago and they had an ADCOMS meeting yesterday..yay. That means I'll be hearing next week or so of their decision...this frightens me! I should be hearing within the next couple weeks from GW..my file is also in review at the moment..*drums rolling*... and the wait continues.

    02/20 Just got the letter that I'm on the alternate list at GW. Well, at least I'm not in the rejected pile. Now I have to step up my game and just be outrageously stalkish and write letters of interest to GW. We'll see what happens.

    03/07
    Just received the big fat R from Columbia. This school has torn my heart apart TWICE!! No love from here. But that's ok...I still love this school:)

    04/09
    I have no motivation to finish school this semester:) All I think about is Europe... As for recent news..I've decided on Jefferson Med. And the rejections keep pouring in!

    05/01 Withdrew from UVM.

    05/13
