I saw this and felt motivated too. If only we should all be so fortunate. Goodness knows I could do with HYS acceptances this year.

Esperance's cycle is deceiving. His or her numbers are obviously good and their URM'ness undoubtedly provided an admissions bump. But apart from this, the key part of her application is the HYPS undergrad she attended. The T-14 soil themselves over URM's who attended elite undergrads and have good numbers. He or she having attended an elite undergrad is one of the primary reasons they were admitted.

I figured there was a reason for that Yale acceptance. Since s/he was the only AA admit trend from LSN last year.
