    -NB I/II score
    -GPA
    -Toefl
    -Nationality
    -Work Ex in US/home country
    -Re/fresh applicant
    -Schools applied
    -Schools interviewed
    -Schools accepted at

    Please do not post any questions here. I will be forced to delete them. Feel free to PM the individual. It will be really useful if we only have the actual facts here.

    Thanks

    HI, Treasure, if I am not wrong, I remember you have chosen UCSF. Can you tell me why you think UMN is better (the pro- and con-)? Thanks.
    Best,
    Peng

    No, I had not chosen UCSF...I chose UMN because it was the most practical choice from my family's perspective.

    Hi,
    I think you are confusing me with someone else.If you read below my avatar it says North dakota and that is where I am located. I never lived in Illinois.
