In fact, I have not seen anyone who scored lower than me. I have no excuses or even any explanations. I'm just grateful that UIUC looked past the score and saw the value in the rest of my fairly strong application package. It does make getting the rejections a little easier though, as opposed to someone without any giant holes in their application...because it's obvious why no school would want me.
I don't get it
If schools really take students based on numbers then I should have a chance to get into somewhere, but it seems I don't. So, it can't be that simple
I highly doubt that there are more than a few unis which use this method.
