    I see, in that case you will do well if you take extra care to improve your essays and have many people read them.
    You have better stats than I did this past cycle but I spent a lot of time on my essays and applied more broadly

    I would consider more schools outside of the top 25 to make sure you aren’t scrambling to add more schools in September and August if luck doesn’t fall your way.

      How about UCLA? And I second applying to "lower ranked" schools. Applying broadly is key.
      I'd encourage you to consider Mayo Clinic, very productive medical imaging research and strong MSTP. Feel free to PM me if you have questions.

      I will consider those schools!

      Thank you all for the great advice! I have added more mid/low-tier MSTP programs to my list.
