    Why are you a re-applicant? Why do you think your last application was unsuccessful? What has changed since your last application?

    My weakness was in lack of clinical hours both employed and volunteer. I improved both since last cycle and am continuing to work on these areas

    You could add most of the schools you are considering except Howard, Meharry and Virginia Tech.

    Be aware of the outrageous tuition Illinois charges for OOS students. I’ve heard it’s the highest tuition in the US!

    I wouldn't add the HBCUs and Brown. You could add Oakland to your list. I think Vanderbilt pre-screens secondaries also so I would make sure the 125 CARs wouldn't get screened before you spend money applying there.

    They tend to take a lot of their own grads or grads from other ivy league schools or people with connections from what I've been told.

    I can't remember who said it on here, but I once heard "they're more inbred than an Alabama trailer park"
