After being on the forums for a few months, I always see those threads like "Am I qualified?", "Can I get in?", or "What are my chances?" (I, too, am guilty myself of starting one of those when I joined). Of course, none of us forum-ers can really answer those questions because we're not the admissions board, so the best we can do is compare ourselves to others. This brings me to my point. Would it be appropriate to start a "Compare Myself" Thread where people can post (essentially) their resumes and current status so others who are unsure of where they stack up can see everyone else's statistics and see where their strong points are and where they can improve? For example, I would post the following in a "Compare Myself" thread: USMA2016 USMA Candidate '16 USMA SLS Attendee '11 Academics: GPA: 4.0 (uw) 4.37 (w) Class Rank: 3/422 SAT: 690 math, 700 reading, 740 writing ACT: 30 composite, 31 math, 29 english, 35 science, 25 reading PSAT: 72 math, 64 CR, 67 writing Athletics: 3 Years Varsity Wrestling, 2 letters No CFA scores yet Extra-Curricular: Boys' State Attendee Scouting Senior Patrol Leader Club President School Band/Chorus Member National Honor Society Attendee Church Youth Group Leader San Diego Hall of Champions - Champions Sports Corps Pianist, Guitarist, and Cellist 120+ hours of community service as a Piano teacher, peer tutor, and through scouts. So that's pretty much what a post would look like. To recapitulate, it would eliminate many of the "what are my chances?" threads and give worried candidates a chance to compare themselves against other candidates! Let me know your thoughts on it; if you think it's a bad idea please don't hesitate to shut the thread down, but if it is a good idea then let's get this started! Thanks again!
