Above or at a school's medians?

Postby tsmalls33 » Fri Nov 29, 2013 8:06 pm

Quick question: if you are above or meet a school's medians, are you nearly guaranteed a spot there? Even if your personal statement was mediocre?

Think schools ranked 20+ by usnews, and many of the schools in the mid to high ATL rankings (20+ as well)

Outside the T14, I wouldn't worry at all. The only PS's that matter are the ones that are awful, and the ones that are amazing; everything else is just going to blend in.

20+ as in 21,22,23...

My top choices are in Texas and Georgia, and I just wanted to be prepared for their answers

If you're going to schools outside the T14, you shouldn't be aiming to just barely get in. Retake if necessary to get a few points above median, and land a nice scholarship.
