3.35 + 173 (Time Capsule Chances Thread)

Post by North » Mon Jan 29, 2018 11:14 am

I did my cycle back in 2012, but I'm curious whether my outcome would be any different these days. FWIW I ended up EDing to UVA and paid sticker.

I tried this on MyLSN for fun, and it looks like people over the last 5 cycles have been getting CLS/NYU with these numbers (with an EV of about $20k)? I feel really old now.

Same numbers and also kicking myself at how splitter friendly some of the higher-ranked T14s have gotten since my cycle.

These young whippersnappers don't know how good they have it. Back in our day, T6s had actual grade floors, you started out at $160k/year, and you had to walk uphill both ways only to get dinged during OCI.

Yikes, I'm sorry about that! I got 120k at UVA with a 3.6/172, but that isn't quite splitter territory.

FWIW, 60k from NYU or Columbia is something but basically peanuts once you start comparing the cost of life differences.

But as someone with those exact stats applying this cycle i'll let you know how it goes... hopefully it is indeed friendlier lol

Had almost the exact same stats (3.33 + 173) and applied in 2014. Unfortunately I ED'd Chicago so my cycle didn't last long enough for me to gather a lot of interesting data points (got in to basically NYU and down, didn't stay in the game long enough to negotiate scholarships/didn't care bc GI bill).

Don’t forget about the torrential rain, and the angry bears chasing after you.

It's also probably wiped out by the tuition increases since 2012.

Had these stats last year and got in up through CCN; WL'd at H. Results seemed wildly splitter-friendly to me.

Slightly more extreme, I had a 2.8/174 back in the c/o 2019 cycle and was waitlisted by pretty much everyone from Penn on down that didn't have a hard GPA cap, with a coin toss for eventual rejection/acceptance without money after that. Ended up ignoring the waitlist game and taking UT with $$.

Almost the same (2.7/173) for the c/o 2017 cycle.

H/P/B: Ding
M/V/D/N/Chi: WL
NU/GULC: In

Didn't apply to Y/S/Col/Cor.

GI Bill + Yellow Ribbon eligible vet, so cost no issue. Went to NU. Hope this isn't too much of a derail, but I think the thread title might bring in some more extreme splitter types as well.

They dont usually tell people, but im guessing my mid january application, and that cornell went for high gpa last term. Also it seems to be the story of my life to underperform my numbers, so i could also just be genuinely unlikable.
