I'm currently interested in UPenn's top BME program - especially with the new building and the chance to shadow a medical internist (not sure I used the right word there). However, I am aware that it is a rigorous program, and a top Ivy League school. Should I even apply? I've applied to many other top schools (Northwestern, Rice, BU, etc.) and I'm pretty discouraged after seeing UPenn's supplement essays.
Can anyone just give an insight into the BME program?
