    Summary of Application Experience

    10/3-Hectic so far. Delayed b/c LORs weren't published on VirtualEvals until 9/11.

    10/18-acceptance email from UASOM. Plan to withdraw from a few schools.

    11/22-so far, one acceptance and one rejected. 3 interviews/decisions pending. not too stressful so far. I liked UAB, and Case was really nice too, so we'll see.

    12/18-got a rejection in the mail from UChicago today. Penn was a great school, by the way...but I don't hear back until March. Ready for three interviews in January.

    1/22-accepted to UMich! rejected from Northwestern, but I think I'll withdraw from a few schools now. I was very impressed with Michigan at the interview. Looking forward to revisit, but for now, focusing on JHU/Vandy, then Baylor interviews.

    1/27-Got a letter from Stanford; rejected, but not surprising; small class/not a cali resident/not research-focused enough. JHU interview day was really nice, though. Off to Nashville tomorrow, then Houston; still waiting on Harvard, Columbia, and UCLA just in case.

    2/6-Rejected by UCLA (and I believe Harvard is done giving invites), so only Columbia left to hear from. Vandy was nice, and Baylor will likely be my last interview. Glad it's almost over.

    2/26-Done interviewing...Baylor was great. Got a waitlist from Vandy, and assuming Columbia's done with. Just waiting on Baylor, Hopkins, and Penn now...

    3/11-double whammy today, rejections from columbia (confirmation) and hopkins. two more lottery tickets left (penn/baylor), or it's michigan, which is cool with me. : )

    3/27-WL at Penn. Probably WL at Baylor, too. We'll see what happens...

    5/5-withdrew from baylor waitlist, alabama acceptance, and accepted michigan's offer today. had a great time at their second look.
