Essays/LORs/Other: My essays are strong I’d say. Lots of personal thought and growth on trauma, mental health, and my mother’s frequent medical events. I have various supplementals written by the professor I did research under at my local uni, and one from Ms. Massachusetts, one of my covolunteers at the zoo.
Schools: Chance me for Brown, UCLA, University of Toronto, WashU, Harvard, JHU
Will be able to pay in full for any of these schools, so I would like if this thread could take a step back from budget.
