I was around 23% + secondary and got around 14 last year. Did something go wrong with your bidding? Good luck, you only need one, and you definitely have a fair chance with those stats!
No offense to the 26er, but there is a huge difference between 26 and 23 at forhdam due to the way we rank our students. 23% = top 25% (anywhere from 11-25%), whereas 26% = 33% (anywhere from 26-33%). Because of that, I don't think anything went wrong with his bidding, it was the fact that you were in the second traunch of students and he or she was in the third. Fordham goes 10, 25, then 33.
I really hate the system, because it screws the people at the lower end of the group in order to help the people at the higher end. So, 26 gets screwed whereas 23 gets really helped. Similarly, 11% gets royally screwed.
