    6/23/2008: really putting off doing Q#1 on Columbia secondary. Hopefully will have it done by tomorrow...

    7/2/2008: First two secondaries completed!! Rochester, Columbia

    7/8/2008: U Chicago secondary is making me mad :-( Maybe I won't complete it....? It's a long shot anyway.

    7/9/2008: I got a screened secondary from VCU....made me feel REALLY special. This is exciting.

    7/22/2008: Woohoo!! Complete at Cornell and G-town

    7/23/2008: soo...last year, first invites for interview at VCU were given on 7/22. I wonder when they'll start sending out invites this year... 10pm: woohoo!! I got the EVMS secondary!

    7/24/2008: First interview invites for Rochester today...I didn't get one :-(

    8/4/2008: Eastern Virginia wants a copy of your car registration...I don't own a car!!! And they want your voter registration. What?! There's a paper for that....I registered 6 years ago...I have no idea where it is.
    I should be submitting Northwestern today or tomorrow. I've finished one essay completely, 2nd one almost done, 3rd one needs work.
    Also... I know it's just the beginning of August, but a whole bunch of people are already getting interviews... Not me.

    8/15/2008: YES! YES! YES!!! First interview!!! Case Western is the best school EVER! :-) :-) :-)

    8/18/2008: Am I greedy because I'm impatient and want more interviews??

    8/19/2008: VCU Interview Invite!!! SOOOO EXCITED!

    8/27/2008: I've been sad lately that the interview invites have stopped....and then I got an e-mail from BU. Except that it wasn't an was a REJECTION. I'm very sad. It's so quick. They were SURE. That sucks :-(

    9/2/2008: Soo...had my VCU interview today. Didn't go as well as I had hoped, but you never know what can happen. I'll try to be hopeful!! Everyone there was SO NICE! It was definitely a good experience.

    9/10/2008: YESSSS!!! Invite #3!! More in-state love!! I'm REALLY happy

    9/12/2008: Rejection #2....Georgetown.

    9/15/2008: Case Interview. AWESOME. Loved absolutely EVERYTHING! The interview was above average...i think! But there's an answer or two that i wish i could take back. I really really hope I get in here.

    10/02/2008: I'm really sad...I have a feeling that I'm not going to get any more interviews. This sucks. I'm certainly happy with the ones I have, but it's been so........quiet........ No news at all for the past few weeks. It's KILLING ME! I think that if I don't get accepted anywhere on October 15th, I might add another school or two. Just to make myself feel better. I'll choose wisely.

    10/15/2008: this seems like the worst day of my life :-( Not accepted to either VCU or Case, the two schools I've interviewed at so far. I'm on hold, and it seems that for Case, that's as good as a rejection. I feel HORRIBLE. Only one more interview to go, and what if I screw that one up too? I know that my interviews didn't go perfectly, but I don't think I said anything horribly stupid. I was pleasant, I spoke about my experiences, and I said how much I wanted to go to those two schools (very true). I don't know what went wrong!!! I wish I knew what a 'good' interview was, and what I did wrong. SO sad.

    11/10/2008: FIRST ACCEPTANCE!!!! EVMS!! This is the best day ever!

    12/19/2008: Well, so that's 6 rejections so far, and 1 acceptance. I'm really happy about the acceptance, but I wonder if that's it for this cycle.

    1/09/2009: No more news, but I'm still really happy about my 1 acceptance!! Thanks EVMS!

    1/15: Rejection from Vermont today, and one from SUNY Downstate a few days ago. Oh well, they can't take away the acceptance I already have!! Nanny nanny boo boo.
