Summary of Application Experience

(07/10) Took the MCAT 8/2008 and again 8/2010 - still waiting to receive scores (should know by 9/7/2010).
- Completed Yale Secondary Application 8/24/2010. This kicks off the beginning of a lot of essay writing...
- AMCAS Verified - 8/26/2010
- Received new MCAT scores- Really disappointed by them, I thought I did better on the test, oh well I will continue with the application process and see what happens!

(9/16): Don't put off writing your secondary essays, especially if you submitted the AMCAS a little late in the summer. I'm learning this the hard way as I haven't heard back from any schools about an interview yet. Beginning to feel a little nervous and doubt the strength of my application.

(10/4): Received my first interview invitation!!! Just finished scheduling my interview for mid November (this was one of the earliest dates available). I was surprised by the invitation as this was one of the last secondaries I completed, and one that I almost didn't finish b/c of Arizona's non-resident acceptance rate. Can't wait to interview!
