last year it was in 1st -2nd week of march when the acceptances were out
February 25th. Someone on this forum said we could expect them this Friday.
I haven't finished this yet, but I'm compiling a "difficulty to get into" -type rating, and Columbia is surprisingly difficult, being 6th hardest. Preliminarily, the list is:
2 MIT, Berkley
10 Penn, NYU
I think there are 4 groupings: Harvard stands alone, 2-4 are all very close, 7-11 are close, and Stanford and Columbia (which are both somewhat irregular). So, and this group sadly does not include me, 7-11 are safeties of the stars, 2-4 are the good fits (maybe), Harvard is the reach, and Stanford and Columbia are the oddballs (maybe they pay the most attention to being good match). Brown, UCSD, and Cornell could all sneak into the top group, even though they are usually on the periphery of the top 10.
For those who know more about Columbia, is my impression that they pay more attention to fit than some other top schools plausible? Have I been staring at code too long? Are my tiers plausible as well?
School A is harder/easier to get into than school B if there are at least 2more/less cases of a student being rejected/accepted by school A thanthere are cases of a student being accepted/rejected by school
I'll format the results of this and put it up in a few minutes, but in my spare time I am mostly thinking of a way to turn non-transitive non-complete preference relations into a linear ranking (I have a few different ways in mind, and will probably produce a few of them for comparison), and how to take those ideas and code them (this is actually the hard part right now, and I am assuming I'm just thinking too hard, and the answer will come to me soon, so I'm doing actual work instead).
