Summary of Application Experience

1) Apply early

2) A higher GPA/lower MCAT combination is better than the other way around

3) Do community-based research. It's a hot topic. Every interviewer I had loved it.

4) Be able to tell how your experiences changed you, why you got into the activity you did, and how it connected you with future activities.

5) Be excited during your interviews. You're being watched at most, if not all, times.
