Hey guys, so I'm planning on applying for this but I heard it's nearly impossible to get into with an acceptance rate harder than Harvard. I don't know if I have enough leadership experience and service hours to get in to this but I wanted to make a thread for everyone who's applying for 2018. What have you guys heard about the competition? Do you know if there will be interviews? I'm from the San Francisco bay area, has anyone heard anything about the competitiveness of the markets around here?
Also, if anyone has tips on what they look for in the application (like is it the essays, the letter of recs, or service hours that matter the most), please do send advice!
