twins..

<p>My identical twin sister and i are planning to attend the same college, we have semi-similar stats, although she has a slighly better GPA with a few more ap's, and i have slightly better test scores and more leadership positions, but all in all i feel that she is a stronger candidate. Do you think that they will accept/reject both of us, or judge us completely individually? Like on the duke application they specifically ask you if you're a twin or triplet. Does it matter?</p>

<p>I have no answer but that is a funny problem!</p>

<p>Hey collegeboardslave, I'm a twin, too!</p>

<p>I've almost got the same predicament, except I'm almost fairly sure that I'm the stronger applicant. However, we applied to different places early (me- Georgetown EA, him Tufts ED). So obviously, we're not set on going to the same school.</p>

<p>However, from what I've heard, they don't like to separate twins. They either accept or reject both. So either: your twin will get in, and in theory you wouldn't, but since you're twins, you will too. Or: Your twin would have gotten in, and you still wouldn't, and so they just reject both of you (assuming, of course, that your twin really is the stronger candidate). I would think, however, that the double acceptance is more common since the other way is just plain mean. :)</p>

<p>I could be totally wrong on this, but that's what I heard!</p>

<p>That's so cool! Twins.
I'm sure they'll take that into consideration and since your stats aren't so far apart, it shouldn't be that hard.</p>

<p>I don't know if there are specific policies, but you often see both twins get accepted at given a college. MIT accepted 3 or 4 sets of twins last year. Harvard has a set of twins enrolled in its current freshman class. The LA Times had an article several months ago about a set of triplets enrolled at Berkeley. </p>

<p>My guess is that if your stats are quite similar and they are willing to take one of you, they'll take both.</p>

<p>haha.. wouldn't it be great if i got into all of my top schools because my twin is the salutatorian, so the colleges are like "heck let's just take her sister too"?! i hope youre right calidan! </p>

<p>ps- isnt having a twin awesome?!</p>

<p>Calidan said (and I quote):
"I've almost got the same predicament, except I'm almost fairly sure that I'm the stronger applicant."</p>

<p>As Calidan's twin, I can tell you he is a liar. I am the stronger applicant. Don't believe his lies.</p>

<p>I must interject for my fellow future Hoya.. ;).. hehe, go Georgetown!! Hoya Saxa!</p>

<p>Jumbos are better than Hoyas any day...</p>

<p>Mmhmm... an elephant? Please. What a sorry excuse for a mascot.</p>

<p>LOL. J/K. And I really am the stronger candidate (thx Tlak). </p>

<p>In comparison:
SATs:
-me: 1410, him: 1400
SAT IIs:
-me 2260, him: 2120
GPA:
-me: 3.8, him: 3.7</p>

<p>PS- collegeboard, it's only SOMETIMES awesome having a twin. Hehe... :)</p>

<p>Actually, Georgetown's mascot is Jack the Bulldog. :-D..</p>

<p>haha.. i have 1420, she has 1410.. plus i was born first HA!</p>

<p>Haha! I was born first, too!</p>

<p>And see? He doesn't even know what Georgetown's mascot is... for shame.</p>

<p>a little flirting?</p>

<p>I'm a twin too!! It really is awesome being one, and only another twin could understand! Hehe Anyway, I hope what you guys are saying is true because my sister and I applied to all the same schools. Our stats are almost identical though and we do the all the same activities.</p>
