UVA adcom told me point blank toughest in she had seen in her 21 year career

4 years 9 months upon matriculation. 4 years on application (I applied rd 2)

1) idk about toughest on record but it was up there with 2008 from what I’ve heard 2) easier than last year but harder than normal imo. There will be some spillover from last year of people who got rejected or feel they underperformed. There will be less deferrals and likely less applicants given the recent strength of the job market.

😩

This year will be tougher than years 2014-19, but not as bad as 2020. International applications and matriculations are low, it seems like they will stay low as long as countries continue to have barriers to travel

In a similar boat. Applied to 8 schools, interviewed at 4, waitlisted then rejected at 1, and was only accepted to a T10. I feel like I have a more unique angle at my career story now, and with one more year of WE, should I consider reapplying to M7? Stats: 750, 3.3 STEM at top20 UG, had 3.5 yrs WE with decent ECs and 1 early promo.
