Your other post is only 6 posts below this one at the moment, you should have just bumped it up instead of making a new one. The message board is quite slow right now. I don't remember if that's always the trend, but it will be sure to pick up soon as everyone readies their applications.

I don't respond to profile evaluations because I can't even evaluate my own chances. Also I don't have any unique information about things like the development programs you're asking about, etc. Your advisers and professors will always be the best source of information.
