Medical School Applications

Yesterday, Monday July 16, Jovauna's AMCAS medical school application was officially processed. Now the secondary applications are flooding her e-mail box. This is both exciting and intimidating. It's exciting because it appears many schools are going to give Jovauna serious consideration (even though most, if not all, these secondaries are automatic). It's intimidating because Jovauna has to turn back these secondary applications within two weeks, at the most. That's a lot of work. The good news is that most applications feature similar question prompts, so Jovauna can recycle essays. However, many schools also have essay questions to the effect of "Describe your interest in our University," which requires individual research into each school. That's lots of work, but I'm sure she'll pump them out quickly once she gets into a groove.

Given that Jo applied to 38 schools, I created a so-called "application matrix" to track her progress and keep friends and family up to date. Check it out here.

By the way, she received a secondary from the University of Michigan today.
