ml2316, congrats, what university did you get into?

Anyway, you'll want to try and get at least 2 papers published as well as to endear yourself to a few of the profs (the ones you will want to write your recs for Cambridge). Obviously your GPA will matter a good bit, but research papers will help tremendously and great letters of rec will help seal the proverbial deal.
