Summary of Application Experience

Second time applying. Applied previous year to ~20 schools. Received a grand total of zero interviews. Enrolled in a Master's program this year in an effort to strengthen my application, and reapplied. Was finally accepted at the end of May. The main piece of advice I can offer to prospective students, particularly those with less than stellar grades/MCAT scores/applications, is that if you really want it, don't ever give up or let anyone tell you that you're not good enough for medical school, because that's BS. Be persistent, and you will make it.
