With my numbers, applying to Yale is like playing the lottery. But then, it seems like it isn't much less of a gamble with great numbers, either.
I don't know that I'm actually going to apply; but I've got something that was originally an idea for a PS, and it turns out it runs 249 wds. I think it may be unusual; but then I don't know what people do for the 250. So I'd be interested to have some people take a look at it, and interested also to hear what others have done.
