Cool
170-174 up is misleading cuz 170 went up by a lot while 171-174 down.

Adcoms in Cambridge, New Haven and Palo Alto are freaking out right now.

If I did the math right, there are less >=173 scorers than in 2014-2015 which was the lowest cycle in recent history. H let a lot of 174 + 3.5x and 3.6x people in that cycle. Hell, a 173/3.33 got in.

I am looking at that graph right now. That does give me a bit of home. A lot of red around there though.

The deadline has already passed though, so they should know what their pool is now.

So along that thread, a 177/3.14 has a small change, right? *lol* I can dream..

Well, I hurt their medians just as much as you. Numbers wise a 177/3.4 is pretty much the same as a 177/3.14. It seems like it doesn't work like that though. 3.5 hurts them just as much, but there are way more 3.5x accepted than anything in the 3.4x range :cry:

Yeah, it's a bummer. I keep telling myself that they'll see the upward trajectory but eh, who ever knows. I've seen about three LSN users get in with comparable GPAs and all are URM so I'm likely chasing a pipe dream, but I suppose that's what dreams are for.

That is my hope too. My last six semesters of school averaged over 3.9. That one year killed me.

Looking at past LSN graphs I would kill to go back and get my GPA a few points above 3.8, it's like there's a hard line right where I'm at between very strong likelihood of acceptance and straight crap-shoot :/

I would drop an I'll advised Spanish minor I never even ended up completing. I didn't even need the credits either, could have just played video games an extra 3 hours a week and been a stronger candidate

That's how I feel about math-econ... needed it get the BS instead of BA which is now proving less than helpful.

Thanks Assasin. here's hoping that they'll acknowledge my upward trend and that your GPA didn't take too bad a hit! UCSB is beautiful btw.
