I have a few questions (please number your answers if you can?) 1. How strong is my profile at this point in time? I'm slightly concerned because Australia is not very well-known to Americans... As opposed to Beijing or like, London 2. What should be the highlight of my profile for the 2+2 Program application (what should I make a story out of?) 3. What is my weakness? 4. What should I work on? I'm in my first year and I have 3 years. (Most important question! My reason for posting!)
Thank you very much in advance - I really appreciate it. Feel free to criticise anything. I'll be using your service in 3 years anyway. It's better to know now than later, as I still have 3 years to work on it!
