If you come across any other write-ups or useful resources for U.S. Applications, do let me know, so that I can consolidate here.

Am calling all those Class of 2013 who have gone through the application process, to write and share. Do hope that you will share it through various platforms - your blog/website, forum, and I'll definitely be more than happy to share what you have written here too.

Would also strongly encourage all of you who have gone through the process to go back to your alma mater (high school, preparatory program) to share on what you know and guide the younger batch.

Lets hope that we can all work together to stimulate the applications and admission rate next year!
