Why would someone with numbers above both medians ED and lose any shot at big $$$? Maybe if they're UVa or bust, but it can't be that common to just hate money... can it?
I see your point, but Virginia does seem to be one of those special schools that attracts a certain number of people who might be able to secure acceptances at higher-ranked institution but simply prefer to spend three years here.
Also, there's a difference between being slightly over the medians and being significantly over the 75ths. YP usually concerns the latter category.
I would be one of those people.
Ok. You might have gotten NYU or Chicago, but UVA is probably about as good as you would get. You don't have to troll angrily about UVA not YPing because it's obviously true that they do it. There's nothing necessarily bad about it.
