Given my numbers, I'm expecting few, if any, acceptances. With that being said, I'm applying to a number of schools that I'd be happy with going to. I suppose you won't know what would've happened if you never tried.
*PS I'm not putting my actual school name because it is small and people may figure out who I am....heh*
On Priority Track for Duke.
Why Duke, Georgetown, UVA, and Penn. Had a mix-up regarding the Why UVA and had to send it in via email. Cornell's Why X statement is a requirement (although briefer than optional Why X statements)

>>All scholarship amounts are merit-based only<<
>>It's worth mentioning that, after being accepted to my top choice, I didn't go through any merit-based scholarship applications for other schools, as I wanted to avoid seeming disingenuous about my intentions to attend other schools. So, among the T14, excluding UPenn, UVA was the only school that did not have a separate application or process for merit-based scholarships, which is why I was awarded something from UVA. I also didn't respond to the feeler email from Georgetown about scholarships, seeing as they specifically requested that only individuals who were "strongly considering" Georgetown apply. So my outcomes for who awarded me merit scholarships aren't entirely indicative of what possibly could have happened.<<
