OPs of T14 admissions threads, I'd suggest adding these to the post so they're easy to reference!
Let me know if you notice any issues with the spreadsheets so I can fix them as needed.
Please don’t edit anything other than your own line of info, including sorting the data or filtering it in any way! If you want to do those things, go to file → make a copy, and then do whatever you want to your copied version.

Also, see this previous discussion regarding the relative strength of softs:

Below Average would likely be non-URM K-JD with little work exp. or community involvement, but what takes someone from average to above average, if they aren't URM and don't have military experience?
This was discussed a lot in last year's spreadsheets thread, and the general consensus was that it's very, very difficult to define.
Here's one list that was floating around:iamgeorgebush wrote:"Highly Unique" : Rhodes, founder of a nonprofit/startup, chef at a Michelin starred restaurant, NFL player, published novelist, etc.
"Above Average" : Marshall/Gates/Fulbright/Truman, MBB Consulting/bulge bracket Investment Banking, production assistant at CNN, paralegal at the ACLU, software engineer at a venture-funded startup, officer of a state or national student organization, etc.
"Average" : student government, student newspaper, neighborhood outreach, fund raising, officer at a student club or two, etc. (some combination of at least three of these)
"Below Average" : one or two of "average"
"Weak" : few to no ECs/internships
But obviously it's not comprehensive and there was a lot of disagreement about it, so take that with a grain of salt.
