Yale - rolling
Stanford - first come first serve
Harvard - rolling
Columbia - lottery
U of Chicago - all decisions made on Jan 1
NYU - complete open registration
UC Berkeley - not a real school
U Penn - rolling
U of Virginia - first come first serve
Duke - legacy only
Northwestern - anyone who wants to attend gets assigned a few weeks in the year to attend
Georgetown - applications read in order of seniority of the Senator you interned for
Cornell - rolling
UCLA - ?


please find above the admissions policies of the T15

Thank you! So I'm kind of a newb when it comes to this so would anybody mind explaining to me what "lottery" is? And what's the difference between "rolling" and "first come first serve?"

Also, what do you mean by "legacy only" for Duke? And are you being sarcastic about Berkeley/Northwestern/Georgetown? Sorry I'm bad at picking up things : (

And I read that the U of Chicago app deadline is February 1st so how would their decisions be made on Jan 1?

Thanks again guys!

This is why we cant have nice things people.

The post you are refering to was someone joking around. I do not know for sure, but I would have no reason to suspect that the "all except yale" answer was correct. I base this assumption on the fact that I havent run across a school that isnt rolling yet in my prep work.
