Also, if you just got that 178 some free waivers should be coming in the mail, I think.

I'm with sophia on this one. There's no school worth going to that will accept you with a 178.

I guess you are right, I have been hiding from the truth for too long.

Ok, so one of my LOR is still not in. She said she mailed it out 3.5 weeks ago. 1.5 weeks ago I had her fax the same letter. So, hopefully one of them will be in next week; I called and they said it will probably be in next week. :(

Is it too late to apply if I submit everything in the first week of December?
I want to have the best options; should I start considering taking another year off and applying next cycle? (I really dont want to, but if it means a better school or scholarship it would be simply the right thing to do, no?)

What do you guys think? thanks...

I know urms have later cycles, but I feel like I missed all of the big acceptance dates....

I know a lot of folks are discouraging you from applying to Stanford and Yale, but if you have the $200 (unless you would absolutely take Harvard over either) I would send out applications to both. You really just never know.

You could wind up anywhere from HYS to the T6 to the T10 with money. You could get into Harvard and get rejected at Texas. Who the hell knows.

My only advice is apply to any school in the T14 where you would attend happily, and then UT.

You didn't. It's not too late in December. Just apply whenever your LOR comes in. Try for this cycle. URM cycles tend to last longer in general from what I've seen here. Don't wait another year! And apply everywhere you can.

Chill. I didn't apply to Stanford until December. I wasn't complete until February because they wanted some incredibly hard to procure study abroad transcripts. A lot of people who applied to Harvard in september were waiting until spring just like the people who applied in december/january. I don't believe when you apply matters to Yale at all.

Have everything ready and just hit send when the LoR arrives. Whatever you do, don't sit out until next cycle. You're not doing yourself any favors.

It does NOT mean that chart represents the admit/waitlist/deny cycles of AA males, nor does it mean it represents the cycles for applicants that have scored a 178.

In at Harvard.

Out at Yale - GPA too low

50/50 at Stanford.

In everywhere else.

Enjoy an awesome cycle.

It is the closest thing we have?
So? AA 178 are the last little green spike on the chart??

This is dead on. OP this is really the only post you need to listen to in regards to your acceptances/chances.
