    Summary of Application Experience

    Relatively late submission (mid Sept) because I took the DAT in August. Got a quick invite from Columbia and then attended interviews to Temple, Rutgers, Pittsburgh. Interviews were fairly laid-back and the video interview at Temple is not bad since you can rehearse what to say. Enjoyed my visits to all the schools but decided to attend Columbia!
