Alright here is the deal, I have my heart completely set on UT Galveston Medical Branch for a number of different reasons. It's not a top 10 school or anything, so what can I be doing now, pre-application, to show them that I absolutely dieing to go there, and that I will do anything to get in. I am only going to be applying in Texas, and I just want them to know that I would really like to attend. Basically, is there a little "extra" anything I can do to raise my chances? I am a pretty solid applicant I think (crossing fingers for the MCAT still) but I know there are flukes all over, and I just don't want to be one with them. I was considering early decision, but I still have not found the benefit of going that route... Any advice would be great, thank you.
