Yep, same. Not to be negative, but it looks like us 12/15ers are more marginal than the 12/13ers...


I'm 12/13, and I'm marginal :)

Haha, nice CQ and BigEast... Thanks for the peptalk!!!!

TCR in this thread is that something like this logically can only mean that you are in with full ride, COL, and a part-time secretary.

As Robert Plant said, "Nobody's fault but mine." I was definitely startled, though. As Mitch Hedberg said, "I need to read faster!"

Well, there's probably a stip about finishing in top 25% first year, after which they hook you up with a full-timer. To be honest I don't know for sure about the secretary. The rest is a lock though...

Can I have that secretary job when Cornell finally admits to burning my app/throwing it into a gorge? Girl's gotta eat.

It all depends.

First, you should be above both 25ths. If not, your stronger number should be well above the 75th percentile. If you're within both 25-75 bands, marginal would be exactly at medians (you have to account for people with strong softs and URMs... in other words, the median is not the target number for the "average" applicant), slightly below each median, or one below and one at or slightly above median.

Conversely, someone slightly above both medians is probably 50/50, and someone slightly below, at, or slightly above one median and above the 75th percentile for the other number is in good shape.

ETA: Also, this is for the connotation of "marginal"... I guess the truly marginal people are the folks who no one can believe got in, but somehow did.
