Does an Ivy league school really YP? Like another poster said, that's stupid - Cornell is possibly a viable choice for those of us who might choose a lower T14 with $ over a T3 at sticker.
Well, first of all, we don't even know if it's a deferral quite yet. But, if it is...
A) Cornell is stingy (as someone noted)
B) They keep track of all of the people with your numbers that get admitted, and I'm sure a very small percentage actually end up at Cornell. So, despite the fact that everyone who gets YPed is always the special snowflake that "WOULD'VE ATTENDED OVER (insert higher ranked school) IF ONLY...", schools keep track of numbers and play the odds just like we do.
Or maybe this isn't YP at all, and they could just detect the same sense of entitlement on your application.
Right. Dirt poor and looking to get scholarships at lower ranked schools (especially ones that place well in NYC) instead of paying big money at higher ranked ones, and I'm entitled.
Here's a list of all the people with >170s that Cornell offered money to last year. Only a few of them had HYS numbers, and still only 1/19 (possibly 2-3 since some didn't update, but very unlikely looking at their profiles) attended. That has to piss off the Cornell adcoms...
