can more graduated seniors do "actual results" threads?

<p>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.</p>

<p>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!!</p>

<p>I second that request. I would rather see the actual results then tell someone his chances.</p>

<p>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.</p>

Fundraising is my strong point ($$$ donated generally 1/2 to HS senior class & other 1/2 to help w/ China's orphanages - my family adopted & I am really involved w/ that):
