Hi Guys,
It's mid-November and it's been a while since I've written a post about my journey to medical school so I thought I'd give an update.

The wait to hear back from medical school is just as excruciating as the wait for a new GOT season!

I wrote a post about my recent summer experience at UNC School of Medicine MED program (you can find the post about it here). The medical school application opened in May and submission was allowed in June, but I wanted all my focus on doing well in the program so I held off until I returned home in late July, but I didn't officially submit my AMCAS application until mid-August.

This was NOT the plan, but life happened... such as my dad getting a bad wound infection that developed into necrotizing fasciitis (faint of heart: don't google) that required him to be hospitalized for 5 weeks and other 4 weeks of rehabilitation, so I ended up working on many of my secondary applications in his hospital room. He returned home about a month ago but he still needs daily wound care and at home rehab... so I took longer than I liked to submit many of my secondaries. But in spite of setbacks in my timeline and life events, I got all my applications in and received 2 Interview Invites so far! Both are my interviews are scheduled after Thanksgiving so I'll let you guys know how they go!

Wish me luck!
