edit: also how tf is a 3.96 even a real GPA how do you get a 3.96 cumulative GPA seriously
I don't think many people would doubt that a 179 3.9 will probably be among the first wave.
I hope so but I'm not worried until end of January. Seriously folks, wave 1 does not look like it's been historically large and given the recent cycle data I imagine it's going to be even more restrictive this year. Pre-emptive "don't freak out"!
What data is making you say that the first wave is not as large as the others?
You can see some data here.
It also shows that the majority of those accepted are above both 75ths.
havent yall considered the fact that the first JS2 wave is smaller than the other waves because a smaller proportion of applicants get their stuff in before the end of November? im sure most people submit right around now which would preclude them from getting a first wave js2
and maybe that's why the scores seem to be better with the first wave: people with higher scores are more likely to get their stuff in early.
that doesn't mean that splitters or other people won't be in the first wave so let's all chill plz hunnie bunniez
I'm sure part of the reason the wave is smaller is because less people have submitted. But if you look at the chart linked, it shows both acceptance date and the date the person's application went complete. So if you just look at those that eventually get accepted and went complete before, say, November, it is clear that those above both 75ths make up a disproportionate amount of the first wave.
This doesn't mean just because you are above both 75ths you will be accepted in the first wave or that you need to be above both 75ths to be in the first wave. But there is clearly a bias.
