8/8 in acceptances so I can't complain - especially with a late cycle start.
6 are t20
3 being t14

Still haven't back from my top 2 choices, but still holding onto hope.

In an attempt to keep this thread active, i was wondering what you all thought about the change in Harvard's dean. Do you think a minority dean will vastly affect the cycle (positively or negatively) or would it have no effect whatsoever?

Also when it comes to T-14 schools do you al really think that numbers really matter for URMs especially reverse and regular splitters within a certain range? Do they just group us and use other factors to decide our faith?

What is the most surprising admission decision you have gotten so far this cycle (Admit/wl/reject) and what part of your application do you think resonated with the the admissions board?

Do you see a significant effect in the drop of applicants this cycle?


What schools are you currently choosing between?

How many people have been held at various schools and what are you doing to make sure you move from the held group to the admit group?


People are welcome to answer and pose any further questions.

I don't think it will have an effect

numbers have to matter to an extent, but to what extent no one knows (prob varies by school as well)

What is the most surprising admission decision you have gotten so far this cycle (Admit/wl/reject) and what part of your application do you think resonated with the the admissions board?
in at NYU, never thought I'd crack the T6

Do you see a significant effect in the drop of applicants this cycle?
I guess... since i got into some good schools?

What schools are you currently choosing between?
mich and nyu, pretty set on nyu though, still waiting for HYSCC tho as well

How many people have been held at various schools and what are you doing to make sure you move from the held group to the admit group?
held at harvard-Sent in updated resume (new job), loci and lor. planning on the same for columbia hold
