I realize these schools are harder than Harvard to get into, and that being an international sets me back further, but after talking to a person who got into USC BS/MD program with an application similar to mine, I gained a ray of hope. (Although she was literally the only international student they accepted that year, and she perfectly nailed the essay and the interview)

I appreciate your every candid and critical thoughts and insights :D

Thank you so much!
