    does more common = you have to? no.

    the course you do doesn't matter within reason - for like the 6000th time.

    Start applying as soon as possible. I dont see how you expect us to be able to decide whether you have a good chance?

    Do extracurricular activities like sports or volunteering. It is quite hard to secure a place- usually around 30+ applicants per place so its important to apply to every spring week. What division are you applying for?

    The applications have opened and the applciation process is quite simple- there is an online application you need to fill in, then there's a numerical or problem solving test, then there is an interview.
