    Summary of Application Experience

    AMCAS submitted: 6/26

    C: complete, I: interview invite, A: acceptance
    (I will not post interview dates, nor information regarding rejections)

    9/22 - Realize that my status for Case was updated 8/22. Stupid me. 1st excited!

    9/14 - Columbia invite in the mail! I'm so surprised. My stats aren't up to par for that school, but maybe it's something about my EC's or my essays.

    10/4 - Decide to try and give Wake a call. Yay the stunt works in my favor!

    10/22 - Okay. Anxiety strikes. I am regretful for not having contacted other NYC schools before heading to Columbia. Cause I haven't heard from of the others yet. Hand me some prozac.

    10/25 - This is seriously depressing. Case puts me on hold. I love that place! I just keep thinking...if only I worked harder my frosh and soph years.

    10/26 - Yes! Interview with the alma mater!

    10/31 - Yay! UC Davis interview

    11/3 - OMG! Northwestern interview invite! So excited!!!!!

    11/14 - I was feeling depressed until I got a phone call from Case!!! WHOOOO!!!!

    11/27 - Ugh. yet another two week lull. What are all these schools up to?!

    11/29 - Rochester e-mails me! I'm hesitant about scheduling an interview after Case acceptance, especially because weather in upstate NY at this time of year probably bites!

    11/30 - Cornell invite! I'm so grateful!!!!!!

    12/1 - Found out I was rejected from UCI a month ago. OMGWTFBBQ?! If I'd known it'd turn out like this, I'd transfer my residency elsewhere. So much for living across the street :(

    12/3 - It's December!!! And I'm getting worried, anxious, nervous and all that good stuff. I'm still waiting on Stanford (haha yeah right) and UCLA still hasn't granted me a 2ndary (boo on those UCs)

    1/12 - Goodbye Stanford.

    3/5 - IN AT COLUMBIA!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOOEEEEEEE!! after many near heart attacks for the past week, hearing other people get good/bad news
