    Do you feel they took into account that you had applied previously and progressed over the course of the next year?

      Probably. I was fortunate enough to receive a little bit of feedback after my first rejection, but it took a lot of introspection to find out where I went wrong.

      My second application was a chance to display the effort I put in to both introspection/self-awareness as well as growth/learning. I ended up interning there twice and am headed there full-time in a few months!
