In all honesty... do only minority students get "likely-letters" from top-ranked colleges.. please don't turn this into a racial disscussion.. it's jsut that i'm a white girl.. praying that i still have a chance at Duke... if someone who is not a minority got a "likely-letter" from a top ranked college (Duke.. Darthmouth) please post

No, all types of applicants seem to be getting likelies this year, yes that includes non-URM academic superstars.

All types of people get them. Kid in my class last year (white male) got them to Dartmouth and Williams. He's now at Princeton.

I don't know how prestigious your suggesting, but I'm a white male and received one from Stern at NYU. In fact this is funny because I heard so many people state the opposite- that only rich, white kids are receiving the invites . . . if that consoles you a bit.

Perhaps you're exaggerating a bit? Only one poster said that.

I know a white male with a likely from Dartmouth and an Asian male with a likely from Duke and Dartmouth.

Candi, perhaps your assuming a bit? I do speak to more people outside of this message board realm :)

I got a likely letter from Harvard, and I'm Hispanic.

Maybe I was assuming, but I find it hard to believe that "many" people walk up to you and say that rich white kids get these invite. :)

Well maybe your assuming once more (and hopefully for good), considering "many" people share opinions in "group discussions". But I'm sorry, I must have directly implied that people "walk up to me" with the issue. How silly of me . . .

Please understand my position, I'm not trying to be rude, but you can understand my natural incredulity.

All students get them, regardless.
