I'm worried about that also, but it'd have to be a pretty dramatic contraction, I think. I'd imagine you're safe for MVP at least. Do you know what happens with schools that have deposit deadlines in May and then getting off a WL in June? Do you just accept that you'll pay $500 to one school only to put another $500 somewhere else?

Yes, I am prepared to do that if it means I'm paying $500 for better job prospects elsewhere.

However, I have been reading this thread viewtopic.php?f=7&t=27221&hilit=negotiating+merit+aid&start=850
, and some posters seem to be saying that deposit deadlines can be fairly flexible.


If a T14 wouldn't give up my seat if I delayed sending in the deposit, it would be nice to try to save the $500-$1000 and remain in a strong bargaining position. I thought the point of deposit deadlines, though, was that you had to meet them otherwise your seat was given away. Anyone here have any knowledge of late-game waitlist hustling they could share with their fellow splitters?

Redacting everything.

Am apparently "not" a splitter by this thread's definition - though I am, by definition, a splitter at the schools to which I've applied.

Be patient with the WL's guys. A lot of splitters got off them at CCN last year.

Penn's WL is kind of a dead end though

Agree. Your GPA is below the 25th for almost every school you applied to. In the context of your cycle, you're certainly a splitter.

He is a URM. He may be a splitter but his results won't be helpful for most of the people in this thread. Not to say that he shouldn't post here, this would reflect poorly on us to tell URM's they don't belong with the white folk :lol:

Iteachtenthgrade or Noodley? Either way, yeah a 3.5/3.6 URM GPA is completely different than a non-URM sub 3.7 GPA. Even in the context of HYS admissions.

Given the number of URMs per cycle with a 3.5+/165+ combination (~300 total - page 20: http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/ ... eckdam.pdf) a URM admissions cycle with those numbers will be completely useless to actual non-URM splitters and may actually be misleading to those ITT.

You're not talking about me when you say "he is a URM," are you? First of all, I'm a girl. Second of all, I'm not a URM.

Not sure if you were referring to me but I just wanted to set the record straight if you were.

Sorry, when you wrote "MA," were you saying you are Mexican-American, or were you saying you have a master's degree? A lot of us, myself included, are thinking the former.

What an incredible statistic. Just to clarify, the number cited refers to black and hispanic candidates, so it's slightly different from TLS' def of URM. This statistic would include me because I'm non-MA/PR Latino, even though TLS wouldn't consider me as a URM. The number doesn't include Native Americans, either.

Still, THERE ARE SO FEW OF US. JEEZ.

Nope, I meant Master's degree.

I'm white. Sorry for the confusion.

Come on, 3.6 is below median at all the T20.

In the context of your cycle and target schools, yes you definitely are. Dumb thread exclusion is dumb.

My mistake iteach. You still are a splitter according to the commission, but right on the borderline.

For the record I don't care if she posts here, I just wanted to let her know about the previous shitstorm in case it was going to happen again
