LS Predictor and URMS

Postby helloworld » Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:18 pm

The general advice is that LSP isn't very accurate for URMS - esp AAs. I'm pretty much preparing to send in apps and I've pent most of the day combing through this site, LSP and LSN to gauge my chances.

Does anyone know how off it is? IE: if it says 'weak consider' for URM, does that mean 'consider.' similarly if it says, 'strong consider', does that mean 'admit?'

I don't have a lot of money to spend on apps and I haven't been lucky with fee waivers, so I need to be really strategic about where I apply.

LSN is a better bet. I don´t think LSP did a good job of predicting my cycle at all. 3.78, 162, AA Female
