But aside from all the political fuss etc, DACA has certainly changed my life in so many ways and as someone who has always dreamed of being a doctor and contributing to society in the most meaningful way possible, I have already received a medical school acceptance with more interviews to come at schools that I could have only dreamed of being at. Not to mention, many of them are also willing to give out scholarships and loans to DACA students--especially the private medical schools. Thus, Im being treated the same as regular US citizens and PR in admissions and tuition.

Supreme Court hearing takes place next week.
There are so many DACA ppl who are full functioning, law-abiding, contributory members to society and I think it would be interesting to see how this all turns out.

Let's not give up hope now!
Congratulations!! I wish more Americans had the opportunity to hear such stories of DACA kids being productive and valuable members of the society.
