I studied really hard and racked up a high GPAMay 06 2012Public Health
I studied really hard and racked up a high GPA. I participated in a lot of extracurricular activities and took leadership positions in them. I wrote a killer essay.

If you want to get in, make yourself stand out as an individual on the resume. Get research work, it looks great. Have a high GPA. Have High Test Scores. Get leadership positions. Get good recommendations (I would recommend one from a research PI). And write a great essay, remember think unique but believable.
