A submedian GPA with a 172 doesn't really scream YP to me.

The fact that these applicants are accepted to CCN in droves, screams YP to me.

Rejected @ MVP - In @ Stanford & Chicago. Not sure if it was YP because I'm a URM so our cycles are straight up weird.

Well they probably took into account that you probably wouldn't go, but there are plenty of people who are 178/3.6+ got in. Probably didn't like your PS or something.

You may be right, but I'm still curious about why MVP practices so much yield protection, while similarly ranked (with a broad definition of similar, not trying to troll) schools like Northwestern, Duke and Georgetown don't. Also, lower ranked schools like BU and WUSTL don't YP, either. They probably receive a lot fewer 171+ applicants, but still.

Yield is a small factor in USNWR. But I'd imagine a lot of people they're WLing would consider MVP, especially with $$. I know I would, but I think I'm destined for straight WL at this trio.

When you are as objectively bad as the three schools mentioned, you have to cherish the little things.

I think it is a couple of factors. They are in a deathrace to be number 7 in the country. Since it is only a small part of the rankings, DNCG don't care, but it might make the difference between MVP. Once V starts doing it, then M and P follow or V will always have an advantage.

Also I think MVP are considered safeties to people with YHS numbers, or maybe auto admits to CCN. These people may not even bother applying to NDCG.

I also think NDCG treat the problem of having overqualified applicants differently. NU tries to buy them with aid. MVP gives out more marginal candidates smaller offers to lock them in. NU gives a lot to the people who'd otherwise go to HYSCCN, and not much to others. At least that is the impression I get.
