    I just finished my first application cycle and am currently wait listed at one school. I'm going to re-apply and submit my primary application June 3rd if I am not accepted off the wait list by then. I was wondering if I could get some feedback on my school list, as well as any general advice for being a re-applicant.

    It would be helpful to indicate which schools on this list are a re-application (asterisk).
    How many interviews did you get?
