Notre Dame Applicants
« on: November 10, 2005, 06:36:40 PM »
Looking through LSN, it seems like Notre Dame is a little weird with its admissions.  They seem to snub a lot of people with high numbers.  Not just yield protecting either... these people's numbers are not THAT high.  Any thoughts?

I'm thinking about throwing my hat in at ND, but this makes it seem like less of a "safety."

i decided to look at the numbers at your prompting. very very odd.

i thought i had an okay shot (if how much mail i've received is indicative, and the fee waiver). but that's just insane. they're rejecting people who got into T14 schools.

maybe they're spastic?

I know they're super conservative.  Maybe they're just trying to keep it white, middle class, and Irish Catholic.

Yeah, it's really odd. I'm sure they just have a superiority complex. I honestly feel my chances at some T14 schools are better than my chances at ND.

I think ND could really break into the t14 if it stopped rejecting so many good people.

I applied there cause I got a fee reduction.

I have a 3.85/166 and am planning on a ding. They suck.

Me too.

I have a 3.9/167.

Ethics question:  I was baptized Roman Catholic, though I'm pretty much agnostic.  Since they ask for religion on the form, can I put Catholic?  I'm pretty sure that, according to Catholic law, I'm part of their church.
