Reminder about the accuracy of chancing

<p>Although replies to chance threads can provide helpful insights that may help one better package an application, please keep in mind the inherent inaccuracy of chancing from very limited information. The more selective the school, the more admission officers look into the more subjective factors such as essays, personal quality, geographic area, and the uniqueness of talent in evaluating an applicant, which makes chancing from objective factors difficult. Process the advice you hear from fellow anonymous posters with your own judgement, and always try to confirm what you read with other sources. </p>

<p>Also, leave out information in your chance threads that may make you identifiable, as some college interviewers, even admission officers, do occasionally browse the various forums of this website.</p>

<p>Happy chancing!</p>
