Summary of Application Experience

MCAT 30 - 35.

- Worked almost full-time throughout college at a variety of job.
- Held multiple leadership positions during college and after.
- Worked full-time leading up to post-bac studies, and then throttled the work down slight for awesome classes like Organic Chemistry (which I loved).
- Research assistant, no publications.
- Married
- My original undergraduate degree was in education.

I didn't include schools to which I applied and withdrew. Again, because I thought I had a moderate application, I over-applied. Once accepted to UF, I pretty much stopped the interview process. Love UF.
