Very, very white and male. The only thing I could say that would diversify me is a nervous condition that qualified me for disability services and extended testing conditions at my undergrad.

One question: how heavily do schools consider double majors?


Not at all, but firms will if one of them is electrical or biomedical engineering


As a double Major in Biomedical Engineering/Biology, I can confirm this. I can also say that one of the schools that accepted me last cycle (T6) had a post-it note on my acceptance saying they were interested in my Biomed background. Even then, I seriously doubt they cared that I had a second major, they just cared about one of them.

Shoot for HYS any way. You never know. At least for H/S, the app fee is worth it. Unfortunately I'm 99% sure you're out at Yale. CCN is do-able/reach. Solid shot at the t7-14 though.

Also RE: Softs, it's hard for you to stand out with them. I thought I had a pretty good soft before entering this forum (founded a start-up) but now I know it's above-average at best. Probably not even a consideration for my HYS apps.

By all means apply to HYS if you want (cuz YOLO). But I don't see it happening with a 3.5
