Development of my new blog is coming along. Expect the switch in the next week or two.

As far as medical school goes…when we left off, it was late night on June 1st and I’d just submitted my AMCAS application. My file was verified by AMCAS on 6/8, and secondaries started to arrive in the first week of July. Secondaries come in all sort of flavors; some asked for no more than a signature and a check, while others had multiple essays. As of today, I’ve yet to complete two secondary apps. I’ve had Duke’s secondary in front of me for a while, but it’s by far my longest and I just haven’t had the guts to sit down and work my way through it yet. UNC has yet to send me anything beyond acknowledgement that they received my primary app; this, apparently, is not unusual for UNC. The rest of my secondaries have been submitted. This process took me through most of July and August.

In related news, I got my MCAT scores on 6/15. I’m satisfied with the results: 37R total, 13 in Physical Sciences, 12 in Verbal Reasoning, R in Writing Sample, 12 in Biological Sciences. I think I could’ve done slightly better, but 37 already puts me in the 98th percentile of all MCAT test takers. I’m not complaining.

Things started to get interesting in the application process in August, but that’s a story for another day.
