    GRE (quantitative, verbal, writing): 153/157/5

    Ran two health focused community service projects during college

    Nice Good strong GRE scores you got there. Are you in state or out of state?

    Super bowl ah..not interested. Home alone working on my essays while everyone's out at a super bowl party.

    Okay called and left a message to the director of the program about word limit!

    and OMG this morning I got a call from UIC and they told me I applied for the wrong term (Fall 2013 instead of Spring 2014). I was like AHHHH sorry got too excited to attend UIC. LOL

    Anyways, filled out another app. Supplemental should be on its way. Fee got waived.

    They said for the goal statement there is no minimum. However, the volunteer experience essay should be 600.

    That's good! I think I probably could have added more to my goal statement but hopefully I got my point across in 600 words!

    Great! I'm anxiously awaiting my recommenders' submission of their LORs. Trying not to be that annoying person who emails them every few days to make sure they haven't forgotten... :-/
