"Well… I called the schools I was #rejected by and asked for feedback"
After receiving similar feedback from all three schools, she went back to the blackboard and put in efforts to correct all her mistakes.
"They all gave the same advice; increase my GRE score, take some graduate-level biomedical #science classes (since my GPA was only 3.0)️, get some lab #experience in a science #research #lab and that’s exactly what I did"
She applied again in two years time and successfully gained admission to two Ivy League schools; Yale University and Cornell University.
