Obviously everyone’s situation is different! (Our Comprehensive Profile Review can shed light on yours if you’re interested!) There’s lots of moving parts right now – and so many ways for things to be hard, or unfortunately for some BSers, to become EXCEPTIONALLY hard based on decisions made now at the beginning of the season. How you set your strategy of which schools, which round, with which test score will totally affect how things play out. Is it better to try for a better test score in Round 2 than to submit with the score you have now? Wellllll…. maybe? But it is all completely dependent on the actual specifics that you’re dealing with, and when we see a Brave Supplicant planning to play all their cards on the future, we just get a little nervous.
Not trying to be doom-and-gloom ‘Snark today. Just trying to help you with some flags on the trail so you can find your way out of the forest.
