One current post lists a person's stats, what schools they applied to, and their results. This would be an even better alternative to someone randomly posting "can i get into cornell?" We don't know, but looking at the stats of people who did and did not get in will help you make a more educated guess.

See what I'm saying? So could more graduated seniors who just went through the process post their stats and results? That would rock! Thanks guys!!

    Just search for 2006 decisions in the school you're interested in's forum. Basically all the schools have acceptance/rejection threads, although you're going to find a higher percentage of acceptances posted than rejections because people aren't going to come on and brag about their rejection. Or if you find a poster with similar stats, search that member's posts and check out where they got in/were rejected.
