I see it as more beneficial to become a finalist then apply RD. For the College Match Program, the acceptance rates are very low, you have to fill out a QB application which has a lot of different short answers and essays, and you have to rely on only your stats before 12th grade. That means no new potential SAT's, recs from teachers in 12th grade, more polishing of your essays, new medals and awards/ec's from 12th grade?
Am I missing something important? I don't really see how the time put into the College Match Program is that beneficial. I see the best way as just becoming a finalist then applying RD with the common app? Thoughts? Thanks.
