I'm applying this year and was wondering if my outlook is bright for this year. Due to the expense of applying + flights etc. I'm not sure that I can apply, at least to as many schools, next year. I'm applying to Canadian schools as well, but wanted to increase my chances and would have nothing against practicing in the US.
