I would classify it as "adversity", however, I don't that word does justice to how significant of an impact it had on life and what I had to overcome.

Buy MSAR, it's definitely worth the 30$.

Are you applying this cycle? For Fall 2018 matriculation? You're not too late but it is getting to a point where apps now are at a disadvantage so you need to move quick.

Your stats and EC look good. Do you speak Spanish or have any ties to your ethnic community? That will serve you also. I personally think you can apply broadly to schools you are interested in, but I would target schools such as Miami, Temple, Case, etc.

good luck OP!
