Generally, the better the profile, the more likely someone will post it (or even find this website) so seeing what profiles get into schools can tell you what a successful profile could look like. However, it does not say anything about the minimum to get accepted--that is, the "weakest" accepted profile on this site is probably still in the top half of accepted students.

I thought that perhaps the kids with subpar research experiences had to have stronger grades, GRE scores and recs to make up for the mediocrity/scarcity of research experience...
