This might be a shocking and offending question to some, but i'll ask it anyways. I have been having second thoughts of whether or not to apply to Albert Einstein and Mount Sinai. Reason? Even though I am agnostic, I have a Muslim background and I am Iranian, as I often mention in my application of my involvement with my school's iranian student group. Why would that matter you ask? well, as Sinai indicates in its website: The Mount Sinai Hospital was founded in 1852 as the Jews' Hospital in the City of New York, but it was another century before a school of medicine was created at Mount Sinai. your point? you ask. Well, while I'm sure the commitee members in both schools hold a diverse population of free thinking, race respecting bunch of people, I am worried whether my application will fall in the hands of some people who, because of their lack of exposure with iranians, or muslims, may have some sort of bias and not be interested at all with my application. It's just that when $100 is involved, I want to be careful.
