Usually my school sends quite a few people to Amherst, I’m not quite sure what is happening this year (maybe with COVID) but a few friends that are very similar to me got denied early - which was very unexpected for them (a lot of them are quite depressed). I’m going to be applying RD this Jan 15th, I’m worried that there’s something going on this year I don’t know about. Did the school become a lot harder? What are my chances?
