Yes, midterms are crap. I managed to maintain an A in Ap calc-my worst subject- all semester and then the final screwed me, and i got bumped down to an A-. Now as pathetic as it sounds whining about an A-, you guys of all people can probably empathize.
Also. What the crap! Our class is so competitive! 37673 applicants.
I crunched the numbers a bit cuz i mean. What else are we gonna do...
Using last year's profile proportions*:
3602 would have been ED apps.
1270 of these^ would have been accepted.
34071 would be RD apps.
~5268 of these^ will be accepted.
-Which gives us a regular decision admit rate of about 15.46%.
*Proportions generated from the class of 2015 profile.
Oh and here's a link to a magic eight ball. Magic Eight Ball CGI
You know what to do.
