Hey! Sounds like you have a pretty solid application with no major red flags or anything. Sometimes the system just works against you. I would rewrite everything. You want to have a fresh perspective on your application, which should necessarily mean you would rewrite everything (some things can be really similar, just tweak some things and revamp everything else.)

PM me your PS and I would be happy to take a look.

grateful to have financially supportive parents. this time i'm paying it all myself to show that i can be independent (and bc i feel guilty for "wasting" their money) but as i said i work 40 hr weeks so i've been saving up the money for this.
Add jefferson, rush, new York medical college, and temple. Good call taking off higher tier schools. Use caution and look into mid/low tier to increase chances.

Agreed but what are some other mid/low tier schools? Are there any other higher tier schools that you think I should axe?
Good question, I don't know the answer though haha been too long since applying. If you do a lizzy m score and apply to everything in and below your range is a safe bet

Northstate has chosen to deny its students access to federal loans and payback mechanisms.
Loma Linda is a mission-based school Do you fit the mission?
U of WA's OOS matriculants are from WWAMI states. CA is not one of them.
