Ech. Don't be so sure. URM cycles are pretty unpredictable. I've been wait listed at 7 T14 schools (probably will be 9 by the end of the cycle).
Yes, but you have also been accepted to Stanford. Based on that you could almost call those WL YP. I'm not saying I know I would be in a different, more desirable situation than now, but it definitely would be more likely that I would.
Hank is AA male - the strongest, by far, URM bump.
Partial MA is probably the weakest bump.
Regardless, all I'm saying is that it definitely would not have hurt, and probably would have helped if just a little.[/quote]
If ifs and buts were candy nuts...
The only thing you can do at this point is, if your cycle doesn't turn out as you want, reapply, check the box, and, explain the discrepancy if anyone cares to ask. But, honestly, you really never know. My cycle turned out pretty awesome, but my roommate's has been going abysmally. The URM thing is really, really unpredictable.[/quote]
True dat; if the queen had balls she'd be king. Still can't help but beat myself up a little bit over this, and I'm strongly against taking a year off at this point so pretty much is what it is (or is going to be what its going to be).
