    I swear all these secondaries and interviews seem overwhelming at times(and I only applied to 5 schools!). How are you guy's classes going in the meantime. I know the secondaries are more important than my classes, but it's frustrating to fall behind in classes (since we are still undergrad students and not med students). How are all of you balancing the two, or do you even try?

  3. We aren't all undergrad students [​IMG] I'm a non-traditional student who is reapplying after being outright rejected last year (well, OK, I applied very late and got on 1 wait list). Hence, this year I am completely obsessing about it by applying to 25 schools, and spending my time poring over med school admissions books, medical fiction, and message boards [​IMG] All this while working in a biotech job, volunteering, and taking a postbac class on the side. Since I'm writing this during the day, you can see I'm often distracted from my work. It's tough, but I guess most undergrads work full-time during the summer application season too, so I shouldn't complain too much. But now if I'm lucky enough to get some interviews I get to use up half my vacation time for them. If I were an undegrad I could at least try to find some options for a fall schedule amenable to interviewing and such. Good luck to everyone, undergrads and non-trads alike.
