    When it rains, it pours!

    I interviewed at Iowa Oct 22. I thought I came off as quirky and charming, but was beginning to think maybe I just came off as a freak. But low and behold, I got the nod in the mail today! I now join the hallowed halls of those holding MULTIPLE ACCEPTANCES! Ooooo...I must be sooo worthy...wha? what's that pain in my cranium? Why, it's my head...my head is growing...swelling...truly, I must be soooo cool!

    Okay not really. But seriously guys. So far I've been on two interviews. At both of them I didn't act super-professional. I was myself. I cracked jokes, and just tried to keep the whole thing free and easy. So far it's worked both times. Granted I wasn't applying to Harvard or Duke or whatever, but still...

    Don't be afraid to let your personality show!

    To Bald:

    If you did a search, you'd probably find them, but here they are again:

    cum GPA: 3.06 (EEK!)
    sci GPA: 3.57
    MCAT: 13-15V 11P 13B Q

    And no, I'm not a Iowa resident, so we're in different pools...

    To Scottie,

    I was really impressed with Iowa. I REALLY like their program. The only thing holding me back from attending is the money--I've been accepted to my state school, and going there would be MUCH cheaper. Guess I'll have to see how the financial aid thing hashes out...

    The only thing holding me back are those IEFs. :)
