If you want to attend a school go VISIT them, meet with the students, and sit in on a class FIRST. When I applied to undergrad, I blindly filed the application and waited for news. I thought the same was the case with grad school and have since learned it is not. The OTCAS system is brand new and has lots of problems with its design and the fact each school is using it differently. I've discovered that schools missed reading supporting documents that were mailed to them directly. You are just a number through OTCAS and need the personal visit to stand out. When I visited the schools where I was not accepted, if it wasn't for OTCAS glitches, every school has said I would have been competitive and asked me to re-apply. Luckily, some schools did read what was mailed to them and I have a home for the fall. Best wishes and go visit the schools!!
