Hi C1, Fishbowl is saying you’re not available to chat for some reason. Would love to pick your brain regarding the TBD please!

Apart from the two extremes of a shockingly bad and an incredibly good performance, the TBD won’t make or break your chances. That means that strong applicants (ie. clear scholarship contenders) with a meh TBD performance will still get in, while weak applicants (barely scraped in) with a decent performance will still likely be cut.

Because they still need to fill numbers somehow? My point is that applicants aren’t automatically on the same level playing field just because they all made it to the TBD round. It’s still a very holistic process and the TBD just provides an additional data point.

Happy to discuss or prep for TBD together - lmk, OP :)
