I'm wondering what tips you have for students who are posting "What are my chances?" threads. What kind of information helps a student get a helpful answer? How much information is TOO MUCH information? (Some students later regret posting personal information that allows them to be identified in real life.) What makes a chances thread interesting to read? What makes a chances thread funny and encouraging? What makes a good reply to a chances thread?
I figure you regular readers of this forum have a lot of good ideas on this subject. Sharing with the new participants may help everyone enjoy the threads more.
P.S. Good luck to all of you applying this year. Please let us know whether or not you exceeded the chances predictions you received in replies to your own threads.
