    Now that the 2004 application cycle is almost over, which schools do you wish you had applyed to?

    Mine: NYU and Columbia. I was too lazy to fill out another entire application separate from AMCAS. But NYC would've been fantastic!

    Same here and add Cornell into the mix as well.

    I regret my applications to: Finch, Rush, BU, Drexel, USF. (then again, that's all in hindsight ;) ).

    I was actually interested in going to Trinity in Dublin. But I talked to many people and they all said that going outside of the states, besides Canada, is a mistake. So, I dropped that idea. But I thought living in Ireland would have been a great experience. And I know that Trinity is well respected here in the states. In fact, Boston has quite a few Trinity grads.

    So, that's the only school that I had thought about but didn't apply to.

    UPitt -- I heard such good things about it but rejected it because of the weather and location.

    UVM -- same reasons as UPitt.
     
  7. I wish I would have gone to my UPitt interview and applied to SUNY Downstate and NOT applied to Loyola, Rush, UIC, Drexel, Temple, etc. etc.

    I wish I applied to NYU, MSSM and AECOM, damn I lost my chance to go to school in NY. What was I thinking?

    I regret applying to Temple, Finch, and Albany.

    CWRU - didn't know enough about it, only got to see it and learn more about it when i interviewed down the block at cleveland clinic. all i had to do was check off an extra box on the electronic secondary (d'oh!)

    UPitt - sounds like a really interesting program. pittsburgh's not as bad as people think either.

    I wish I would have sent in the Duke secondary. I should have applied to a broader range of schools including most of the NY state schools. I should not have applied to West Coast schools. I realized after some time that I did not want to move so far away for medical school.

    I would have applied to Columbia.

    I regret applying to Tufts because when they gave me an interview, I called to schedule it, and no one answered so I left a message. No one ever got back to me!! :mad:

    I didn't call back because I got into MSSM which is way better! :D

    I think I should get my money back though.....(I know there's no chance of that)
