I got dinged by Cornhell as well. Similar numbers and international as well. They're probably YP'ing us

I think they are implementing a GPA floor around 3.6-3.7 this cycle in an effort to try and bump their medians up a bit, there are a lot of splitters who got dinged this cycle who would have cruised in in previous cycles

Sorry but what does the acronym UR mean?

@BagelBitin UR = Under Review. When your app goes from complete to Under Review that's UR1, when it stays UR but the status date changes that's UR2, it is possible to get UR3/4/5 at certain schools
