Let's utilize this thread to offer support and encouragement as well as advice and important tidbits about particular programs. It is up to you to share credentials etc. if you want to. Good luck!!

Step 2: 240+
Step 2 CS: Pass 1st attempt.

  @sarahimg: Thank you. No, I have not submitted the application just yet. Even though I have everything good to go, my OCD and paranoia are getting the best of me and I keep giving it "another look". Will submit tomorrow for sure.

@md7: Great creds. Good luck!

  Acknowledgment from UMN and UAMS - Little Rock.
First rejection from VCU-fairfax. Not sure why I applied there, they don't sponsor visas.
