    * Extensive experience living abroad
    * Research at NCI and NIH with posters. No publications
    * Speak three languages
    * Volunteering, shadowing, the usual
    Noticing a trend here: acceptance at safety/target schools and waitlist at reach schools. Pretty sure numbers still play a role post interview. Needless, to say the waiting/begging begins. I will post my update letters/Letters of interest after the cycle is over. Lets hope they are effective :)
