Sooooo, few months back, I started the application process. While I was busy STARTING my application, my roommate had already turned his in... and been verified by AMCAS. Theeeen, finally I finished my application. Such an accomplishment! Praying away for the possibility of an interview or two maybe 3 months down the road... or at least verification by AMCAS. By then, my roommate had something like 10 interviews (he eventually went on to get 18... maybe more...) So finally I get my first interview! Hazzah! But by then my roommate had something like 3 or 4 acceptances from very good schools (most top 20). And now, while I wait to hear from EXTREME REACH schools in March, my roommate gets into a top 10. GAAAAAAH! Why must someone in such close proximity to me accentuate my failure at life?
