Does one adcom read all the applications from one school?

<p>So are all the applications from one school read by one adcom or is it random or do they try to get different adcoms to read applications from different schools or how does it work? Because my brother and my application sound kind of alike (we might have the same teacher write recs for us) that might be bad.</p>

<p>Different schools have different practices, but it is common for colleges to have a "regional" rep who is responsible for the first read of all apps from a specific geographic area.</p>

<p>emory, for example, randomly assigns the apps to readers, regardless of region. Other schools may have the regional rep conduct the first read, and then a randomly assigned rep from another region peform the second read.</p>
