I was pretty scared about getting in but as long as your scores are high enough, essay is well written, and you are generally showing interest in the school it shouldn't be a problem. I recommend VISITING first to make sure you're comfortable in the city of Madison, as there are people who aren't affiliated with the university often on campus and such.

There's no formula to getting in...if the committee thinks you can compete at this university, you will get in. It's tough once you get here, but a degree from UW-Madison goes a long way. Good luck future badgers
