    I am a student on F1 visa and do not have permanent residence (I can't apply for it either unless I marry a U.S citizen or something..and I am would only do that if I fall in love with a U.S citizen, I am not a green card hungry opportunist).
    Any suggestions for improving my chances of getting accepted to medical school or dental school or optometry school?
    I know most state schools won't even accept me due to Federal restrictions. Private schools don't have these restrictions but in addtion t being harder to get into,often have restrictions for financial aid ( which I will need). Any experiences that international student's in my position have had will be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am a good student with a 3.7 cumulative GPA which I plan on raising to at least a 3.8 by the time I apply to medical school or dental school or optometry school ( whichever one takes me..I would just like to serve people in the health profession).Any advice is appreciated especially with respect to test scores that will help me shine, or essay suggestions. I am desperate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Please help.
