Tough going at the very top so far according to the LSN data.  Harvard and Yale haven't taken a single splitter that I can see.  Columbia took a few ED but not a single one RD yet.  NYU just a handful.

And I'm even using a VERY loose definition of splitter here: sub-3.5 and 168+.  True HOF-eligible splitters have been totally shut out at these schools, I think.

Maybe things will loosen up at the end of the cycle.

EDIT:  Oops, right after I posted this, this person got into Columbia:

I know the "does coming from an ivy UG help my chances" debate has been beaten to a pulp on these boards, but it seems like with a lot of splitters on LSN who got accepted to the t-14s, it does help to come from an ivy.

ACK!

Hmm, I don't know about that. I was under the impression that most of the splitters with acceptances on this board did not go to under-ivies. I'm thinking Mobo, Vapid, myself and others. If I'm wrong, please correct me. I'm sure there are some, but I think the importance of ivy attendance is minimal. I think being an interesting applicant is important.
