natsteel Posted February 20, 2011 Share Posted February 20, 2011 this raises another question related ot my last post. there is clearly overlap in the applicant pools for many schools, especially the top programs. is there ever communication between admissions committees across universities in ordere to minimize overlap of acceptances of top applicants? that may be far-fetched, but have wondered if that ever happens.... I know a poster above said "Never," but one of my mentors told me that something like this goes on, at least between top programs (and this person has many personal contacts at those programs). They said that top programs might not admit someone that they know, from those types of communications, has a better offer (not just financially) from a competing program. I am not making a claim of veracity for this statement. Personally, I find it a bit unlikely, but I just wanted to say that I had been told something from a reliable source that contradicts the previous poster's response.
