    Summary of Application Experience

    I did not have the money to apply as broadly as I would have liked. My parents make too much money to get fee waivers. So my list of schools is short. I feel that my application is pretty strong, though.

    U of A interviews were very positive and laid back, they just wanted to get to know their applicants. I feel like I made a good impression and connected with both interviewers.
