How many applicants will submit Why X School essay?

Postby wygsys » Thu Oct 27, 2016 10:47 am

I know many schools use Why X School as yield protection method, but how many applicants will do this? I'm considering whether I should write Why X School to my dream schools or safety schools or both?

Don't write Why X for HYSCCN. Write for lower T14 especially Penn, UVA, & Michigan. Duke is getting on the YP bandwagon too, I believe.

What should you write about safety schools? Obviously they are not my first choice. :shock:

Thank you.

Because even if you think they're safety schools, they will reject you for yield protect if they realize you think that.
