I'm not so sure about P, but you can't really compare admit rates and yield rates between ED/EA schools... because ED policies help manipulate these numbers. ED schools know that they can't compete directly with some of the top schools, which is why they have it in the first place. ED allows them to accept less (which lowers the admit rate) and gives them an artifically high yield rate, both at the expense of the applicant's freedom to apply to other schools.
And despite not having ED, HY's yield rate are higher than Columbia's.
When the cross-admits consistently favor Harvard (and Yale, though I'm not as sure about this)... it's hard to accept an applicant that would most likely get into Harvard, since they'll likely go there instead.
Again, my opinion is that Tufts Syndrome really only applies to only the tip top applicants (maybe 80-100 of them).
It seems that Princeton isn't as much competition to HY as they are to each other.
honorable..making very false and incendiary remarks and then finally owning up to them by claiming that you dont care anyway. why dont you just go away then instead of waving your ignorance around like you're proud of it? why do you bother spitting out BS when you admit that you don't know what you're talking about? |
im out. go reflect on this. it'll be interesting to see what new defense mechanism you'll have summoned to reconcile this.
Uh... I'll say whatever the hell I want. It's a messageboard, I don't have to spout all facts and no opinion. My statements were not complete BS--they had some reasonable basis to them. Just because you *know* a certain GC at a good school that happens to disagree, it doesn't completely discredit my points.
That's fine; if it makes you feel better, go ahead and psychoanalyze me. The fact is I don't really care enough to research and back up every single thing I say, and I won't care too much if I'm wrong.
Seems like you take this board way too seriously, to be talking about honor and whatnot.
