I have read the Rand report to which someone posted a link, detailing how the Admissions Board calculates a Whole Candidate Score. I have also read many times here that the Admissions Board tends to look favorably on re-applicants, showing that they 'really want it'. How do the two mesh? "Wanting it" is not really quantifiable in the same way that so many of the other indicators that make up the WCS are. Does a second-time application affect the WCS? Anyone come across this before, or have an insight?
