174/3.6, late app

Postby tangerines » Fri Jan 10, 2014 9:18 pm

Hi, sorry if this is redundant, but I'm trying to decide whether it's best to apply this cycle or next considering it's very late in the game. I have recommenders set, transcript sent, and everything basically done except my personal statement (which I've hacked to pieces about 9 times) but I'm worried it's too late to get T14 if I get things in right before the Feb deadline.
Any thoughts? I also attended UChicago so I think my undergrad work has a good reputation backing it up

not too late, would try to submit in the next week or so though

id bet your in most of ccn down, with the exception of possible yp and ucb because of gpa, also around 1/4 chance at harvard

awesome, thanks for the input! do you think it's worth it to just send in a generic/decent ps earlier rather than agonizing over it so much and sending later? i've written so many drafts, but at a certain point, i feel like they won't even care as long as it's grammatically correct and not controversial.

I would just work on it as much as possible over the next couple of days to week, but after a certain point I feel like you gotta just realize its not going to be perfect and send it in

if it were me in this situation, I would send apps from nyu down asap, like either today or tomorrow, with your numbers unless your ps is atrocious it probably wont matter

you can take a little more time with hys and cc if neccesary
