Please chance me. Thank you!

You seem qualified. I wouldn’t apply repeat 12, I would apply PG. You’d have better luck, especially being intl with FA. It’s really hard to get in under these circumstances but I’m rooting for you!

I agree with @lilyesh - you seem like a very qualified candidate and you have a good list of schools. Your biggest challenge will be full FA + international, which is a tough combo for admissions. Applying PG should be your best bet, especially as an athlete. Best of luck!
