Looking for reassurance/realistic opinions

Postby redbullvodka » Tue Nov 22, 2011 3:24 pm

Finally submitted all of my apps today, including an ED to Chicago. LORs and Transcript have been in CAS for weeks now, so I'd expect to go complete fairly quickly. I know we always talk about Halloween or earlier being a target, but have I screwed myself for borderline schools (CCNMP) by only making the "before Thanksgiving is early" deadline? Opinions?

EDIT: Forgot stats: 173/3.6ish

Stupid thing to leave out, thought I did that.

It doesn't matter when you submit for ED.

You're definitely not borderline for P. Probably not for N either. Columbia is less deadline intensive. Michigan is sort of a mystery to me, although applying early seems to help there.

You wrote the extra essays for Penn and Michigan, right?

And Duke/Cornell...The Michigan one was tough, but I had pretty solid reasons for wanting to attend the others.

Thanks for the breakdown, that's sort of what I gleaned from LSN but two opinions are better than one.

Probably not, Ann Levine says that before Thanksgiving is still early. Anything after is pushing it.

Based on what I've heard, I think your applications are still early.
