so am I being... way to ambitious or can I take a realistic shot at these schools?
Please rate my schools choice as
(A) ambitious a.k.a - cant even think about it
(S) Stretch a.k.a - Can be possible if you present your case really well
(P) Pratical a.k.a - Stand a great chance if you just present your profile!
Thanks a million chaps! Really appreciate your time and effort!
