    So admissionsDaniel...the other kids applying from the same high school arent taken at all in consideration when making a decision to admit or reject a student?Also, in ED round are students competing against other students for admission regionally(or as a whole)..somewhat? or just the admissions standards/fit?Is demographics considered in ED round and what about gender?(you stated that 44% who were admitted were female..is this an advantage for females or disadvantage or just considered)

    You're overthinking way too much. You can't control other peoples' applications so just try to make yours as good as possible. If they think you would be a good fit here, you'll get in, regardless of what other people do.

    I agree with ^^. It sounds like you are in panic mode. The statistics that you want to know will not tell you what your chances are of being admitted. Their admissions office selects the students and then looks at the stats, they don't look at the stats and then select the students.

    Relax, chill out and work on your application. GL.
