I was wondering if anyone has any advice or suggestion for my situation. My bf is currently a PhD student at one of the top state med school right now (UWisc Madison). I will be applying to UWisc as an out state student. I don't know how much weight medical schools put on these personal issues. I'd love to be attending the same school and get married (possibly), etc. Since my bf and I are already talking about these things, would being "engaged" rather than "dating" help out? Was anyone else (is anyone else) in the same situation? How will this help/not help with my chances? (I'm a little bit below the stat, but I'm also attending one of the hardest tech schools in the country(ehem, mit... Yah, does great for gpa.), and I should have a strong personal statement, etc.) Thaaaaaanks!!!
