Like many, I've been lurking this site for quite a while. I've been looking at chance me's for many selective schools and often I'll see people claiming college admissions to be a crapshoot. I had a few questions regarding this:
Are admissions actually this inconsistent?
Can you give an example that illustrates it being a crapshoot?
Are there ways to avoid this uncertainty?
Particular colleges infamous for being inconsistent?
If you can answer any of this question or add any general remarks that'd be much appreciated.
In a time where you have no certainty with your college admissions experience, it's very comforting to see some sense mad out of this randomness. Thank you in advance!
