    AMCAS submitted: 6/20/06

    Opening thoughts: Submitted AMCAS and secondaries early, and I'm glad I got all the apps done early. Had to wait on letters of rec, but the one I waited on was definitely worth it! :) I've been blessed to have multiple interviews and even more so with multiple acceptances. It's been a fun/stressful/unique experience on the interview trail to say the least.

    Closing thoughts: ...And it's final, I'll be at UIC next year! This has been an insanely long and expensive application process but I'm pretty happy with how it went.
