I keep seeing everybody post their stats and replies like "You'll get in!", "Your GPA will land you an interview even though your GRE isn't very good!", "Oh come on you, your grades are great, you're gonna get into every school you listed!" What about the multiple essays you send to schools? What if my GPA and GRE are stellar, but my essay sucks or the admission committee just doesn't like it or doesn't think I'm a good fit? Do these not carry much weight?
