      You have a highly competitive application. Apply to any of the top 20s that you like. Look around SDN and you’ll find a good list of what the top 20s are. Apply to all your state schools. Also add some mid tier schools. I foresee you receiving lots of interviews this cycle as long as your essays are okay.

          It's an order of magnitude too high. But that's not a big deal
          Yeah, can you break down that 500 hours of shadowing by specialty (as requested in the template)? Specifics for non-clinical volunteering hours? No posters or pubs with research? Did you do any sort of co-op or project as part of your engineering curriculum? How much networking have you done with any of the schools suggested to you in this thread (from Faha)?
