    well, statistically you've got the credentials, but you don't seem to be doing anything other than playing piano and doing that government thing over the summer.

    however, judging from the fact that you got an 800 on the writing (youre just the 2nd person other than myself whom ive seen ace that section), i'm sure you can whip up an enticing essay.

    good luck!

    oh yeah and I would imagine that even if you aren't a citizen you count as a URM. if you're still confused, just become a citizen? although im not sure how hard that is.
