    I'm pretty sure WashU doesn't screen or else we prolly would have heard various SNDers complaining about their pre-secondary rejection. :)

    whats with all the applicants' moms around here :laugh:. welcome to SDN. nope, wash u doesn't screen. be warned though they are very numbers based (average gpa 3.8, mcat 36 from last years class) so unless your youngin is an exceptional applicant or has something extraordinary working for them, i'd tread cautiously. but you never know what will happen, their fee was only 50 bucks. good luck to you and yours

    about WUSTL - why is their admit rate so bleeding high?
    according to USNews its about 10.6%.
    that is downright $lutty when you compare it to some of the other top 10 schools (Columbia aside).

    are there any folks here good at probability?
    based on my B- in stats: for two independent events, the probability that one of those two events occurs is the sum of probability of each event occuring.
    based on this I am applying to 18 schools with an average acceptance rate of 5% - according to the math I have a 90% chance of getting in.

    :p :clap:

    lol, okay, you're a little closer than you think there - my parents are very religious and made a big point of making sure I never believed in santa! ;)
