So do you want us to bill you all at once or break it into three easy payments?

miamiman apparently started his thread dissuading people from asking about their chances on the "what are my chances" board because he feels the space is better utilized for his own verbal throwdowns. :mrgreen:

4.0/173 has a great shot at HYS and is a virtual lock at CCN.


someone with a 4.0/173 doesn't need to be reassured


Strivers need the most reassurance of anyone.

I was merely observing the situation like a nature documentarian.

The real question: why am I on TLS telling 4.0/173 kids that they have good numbers when I should be at the bar? I mean, I know today is my TLS birthday and all, but still.

Leaving now, for reals...

Very good advice.

A HYS admittance would give you leverage to negotiate scholarship money with the lower ranked T10 schools.


Case in point: a dude on here, SwimBrad(?), got into UChi and, months later, Harvard. Initially, Chicago only offered him 60k, assuming of course he wouldn't get into HYS. After he got into Harvard and subsequently notified Chicago of his intent to enroll there, Chicago offered him a full scholarship.

Executive summary: apply to T14. don't ask us to read tea leaves for you.

Hey, that's me!

Anyways, I agree... blanket t-14 or so, cross fingers, pray, rub a lucky rabbits foot, and don't give up - my cycle didn't get interesting until the end of May

and remember- it's all just a game
