Brief Profile:
I want my profile to be a useful tool for future applicants.

I attended 9 interviews while in my senior year of undergrad. The interview process really got to me after a while, and my burnout definitely showed in some of my interviews. I grew and learned a lot from this experience. I ended up with 3 acceptances and a few waitlists, which is a pretty good margin to deal with. I am now attending medical school and loving it.
