@CC_Jon i very much appreciate your willingness to tackle this chore. But really…no matter what you put or what order it’s in, there will be folks who leave a section blank or just don’t know the answer.
I can’t tell you how many chance me posts leave the whole budget question blank…or say “we will find the money”. In my opinion, that is a college student/parent folly. But whatever.
These chance me threads should be viewed as guidance only since no one here can actually make admissions decisions. Plus, we aren’t soothsayers, and have no way to know the strength of the applicants for an incoming class, or special things that might pique an adcom’s interest in having a student in the entering class.
