  1. I don't consider myself particularly able as a candidate, but I think it has to do with being an internationals seeking aid.
  2. I agree. Creeping CC, I don't see much relation between SAT scores and decisions. However, I've yet to see a single URM rejected. Maybe it's... diversity this year?
  3. Congrats! I got rejected from Amherst today. They sent out early notifications by email because I'm an international. How did you fare, mathpoet? Edit: Nevermind.. I can see on the other thread. Congrats on that too.

    May IB Exams

    Does anyone else feel that they're totally not ready for this...?
  5. Oh good. So you are human mathpoet: (I'm no admissions officer either) Amherst is quite selective. With your extracurriculars, essay and predicteds, you have a fair chance: just like anyone else, which is something like 11% this year. I think Carleton sounds more likely, but best of luck to you regardless.

    Oh, I didn't know conditions are determined by program. It does seem kind of obvious now though.. haha. Durham is something like my third choice. I applied to PPE. I'll probably look around the student room to find out what the other admittees were asked of. If anyone here was accepted to PPE at Durham, please post your conditions here. Thanks Hyperbole =)
  10. Singularly it's Philosophy, Political Economy, Economics-Philosophy or Politics, Philosophy and Economics. haha Dual-degree wise, it would be Philosophy and Illustration (or Painting).

    Hi all, I was accepted with conditions to Durham today, and I have two questions that maybe you can answer. 1. What does it mean that I have lower conditions for Durham than everyone else here? (Mine is only 36 points.) Is it simply that less is expected of me because my predicteds are just lower? 2. On UCAS, apparently I selected "campus 4". I admit I didn't do my research with regards to the colleges at Durham, so likely my choice was random. Can anyone tell me what "campus 4" is, so I can pay my due and look it up now? Your help is really, really appreciated. Thank you in advance. - me
