    32 views and no inputs! Com' on guys! I am not even asking you which schools you applied to. What have you got to lose?

    If you don't see my thread that's fine, but if you see it and don't answer,then you wont get admission. :p :laugh:

    Thank you guys! I was concerned if my number of schools were less.I have heard people apply to 10-12 schools in one application cycle.Of course more inputs would be welcome.

    7. I was thinking to apply to UMDNJ too. But that school has started inviting people before their November deadline. Don't know what to do :(
    And their application fees is also high!

    Actually I came to know of someone who got 97 in NBDE part 1 and was not accepted in BU last year.The general impression is that BU looks for high scores.That person is re-applying this year.
