    Know your strengths and know your weaknesses. Don\'t doubt yourself or underestimate yourself. I almost didn\'t even apply to half the schools I got into because I didn\'t think there was any chance I would get in.....thanks to the friends who made me apply to those top schools.

    PM me if you have any questions!
