Anyone who applied with a 165, how's your cycle going?

Postby Inonothin » Sat Jan 28, 2017 10:50 pm

According to the most recent data that came out applicants with 165s are down 21% compared to this time last year. A lot of schools in the T30 have medians or 75ths @ 165.

I'm interested to hear if people who applied with this cycle are outperforming, doing as expected, or worse given there GPA and a 165 score.

Think schools with a 165 median/75th might be a little more forgiving on GPA so they can maintain these stats for this cycle?

Any thoughts or info is appreciated!

I'm starting to get very worried. In at USC and Emory. Waitlisted at Georgetown, UCLA, Penn. Rejected at Berkeley. Interviewed in November with Wash U and still haven't gotten a decision. Pending at UVA, Vanderbilt, etc (my top 2 choices). At this point I don't think I'm getting in anywhere in the T14 and I think USC might be my top ranking school :/ Not that that's bad but I've seen a lot of people with similar numbers to me get into T14s. I submitted all my apps mid November.

166, full ride to Miami, which is my top choice in the context of limited relocation options because-husband-jobby-stuff.
