Good luck at Vandy.

Romo my man, right back at you. I also had no idea we were numbers twins haha, and middle class kids coming straight from undergrad (though I'm half-Azn).

I was disappointed when I heard you wouldn't be going to Vandy, but best of luck at Woostle man, you sound like you're gonna enjoy it.

Expectations - In @ GULC or Penn, WL pretty much everywhere else

Yeah, basically what I was getting at was the thought as to whether applying much earlier (i.e. when apps come out as opposed to at deadline) is a significant change in this regard.

I don't know. There are probably factors beyond your control that would go into that (i.e. if the same person reads your application again, if there was a LOR problem you were unaware of and didn't change, the applicant pool as a whole, etc.). It probably also depends a lot on the strength of your application in general (ie. a 172/3.9 who applies at the deadline could probably re-apply with no significant changes; whereas it may be different for candidates that have an application weakness that just applying early may not help).

I had the most predictable cycle evaaar, except for maybe NU, but who cares about them.
