    Summary of Application Experience

    Applying as a nontraditional student with a masters and strong experiences in public health. Sent in AMCAS 7/20, and most secondaries by the end of August.

    The typical good (and personal) recs, lots of research and shadowing experiences, two years of undergrad killed my GPA. Coupled with the lower MCATs score, I getting interviews will be a stretch and will consider other options (post bac) if I do get in this time around.

    I actually got an interview at Mercer. I was very excited and interviewed well. It looks like there may be a chance for me, and I should know by the end of next week/this month at the latest (according to the admin). There is hope.
