Yes, of course. Top Ivy, however, shouldn't really benefit your chances of acceptance unless it's HYP.

No. Retake.




Also: Blanket the T14 with apps.

Blanket for the sake of scholarship negotiations and keeping your options open.

Non-URM. but wrote a D/S anyway.

Retake advice is only for those suggesting I wait a cycle right? I'm set on applying this cycle, so no point in taking February right?

Given above, blanket t14?

also, dont get the uva joke.

Yes. Retaking Feb. can help slightly with scholarship money and even more slightly with admissions, but is probably not worth it unless you want to wait until next cycle.

Yes, blanket. It's not that expensive. You probably have fee waivers to a few of them. (Columbia, Duke, UVA, Mich, NYU, and NU).

I had those same numbers and got fee waivers to all schools that give them. Blanket the T14 because a full ride to Cornell seems a hell of a lot better than Columbia at sticker if you ask me.

maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but there's no reason not to give yourself the chance to think about it long and hard.
