Thanks for all the tips, guys.
Just curious: why do you think your cycle didn't go that great? you seem to have pretty strong numbers
Weak softs, mediocre PS/LORs. No "why X" addendums to schools outside of T5. + increase in applications means that schools are going to be trying to increase their medians, which makes my numbers much less impressive. I should also add, shitty UG.
Getting in atleast one of CCN would be a consolation....
I couldn't understand how you didn't crack MVP, but the bolded explains a lot. Why did you write Why Essays for the schools that don't need (and possibly even discourage) them, but ignore writing them for at least 1-2 of the schools where they have documented value?
Anyhow, I don't mean to rub salt on an open wound-- and you're in at a top 10 so I hardly think it's been disastrous for you-- but I think that decision might be a big part of your misfortune elsewhere thus far. Looks like you've still got a shot at cracking CCN, though, so good luck!
