    Re: Profile Evaluation Fall 2020

    From this record you're a plausible candidate anywhere from the very top schools through the top 30...which is not very helpful to be told. To narrow it down, you're going to have to talk to your LOR...

    Forget about the two B's. No one will care. Basically, you're doing everything right so far.
