Top 5% at school just outside T14

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jan 11, 2015 7:43 pm

No official rankings are given, but GPA puts me at approximately the top 5% range.

I am not very seriously considering transferring but for curiosity sake I wondered what my odds would be at HYS?

Is it even worth devoting any thought to?

You'd get into HLS.

This. You're probably out at SLS and YLS. You have a chance at SLS, but probably not especially likely. You're probably out at YLS unless you get to #1 in the class next semester.

Disagree with this slightly. We had someone go to YLS, wasn't #1, but was most likely in the top 5.

I assume you're at Vandy? I'm just basing it on the 2 people outside the T14 who were accepted to Yale last cycle. There might be a little more wiggle room than that. I know 2 people who were top 5% at a T20 who both got rejected by Yale this past cycle, but I would assume that softs likely played a role in YLS' transfer decisions.

Yeah. Softs likely played a role because he was already on a full scholarship here. And I meant top 5 people, not percent (although our class is only 172 so the distinction doesn't mean much).

It may depend which schools "just outside t14" but yeah I would say you're a lock at HLS. I know we have at least one person here who turned down YLS, was #3 at a school just outside t14 (not Vandy). A few got into SLS too. I think softs play into the decisions of all of these schools more than people realize.
