    Summary of Application Experience

    Daunting experience as a international student knowing all the odds stacked against me. Thank all the forces that I met a brilliant international student who helped me with the process. To any international students reading this, I know how you feel. Do contact me via SDN and I'll be more than willing to try and give advice.
    As an international student, I was not able to apply to schools like JHU, Stanford and as such, (sign) and that is why I applied to only 14 or so.
