it'll take another go around to look at the date when these posters shared their results, but any idea of how well an applicant with #s in that range eventually gets off the WL?
there were a few people who got stanford but never got off H's WL despite having ~3.6, mid-to-high 160s.
also, any idea why twentypercentmore's unique situation (pretty sure it's common knowledge now but I won't say anything so as to not out him) hurts him so much? The 3.6 164 applicant I refer to above isn't helping most T14s on either number but still get in without a problem, so why s/he different from another applicant who doesn't help either stat?
Have been wondering this as well. I also remember he was still finishing a graduate program or something. The good news is there are more applicants with similar circumstances this cycle. But personal background details still matter a lot. We will see how things play out!
