> In addition to the subreddit's rules which are listed below, Reddit's Content Policy is effective on this subreddit at all times and can be used as grounds for post/comment removal or bans. The Reddiquette may also be enforced at the discretion of the moderators in the interest of maintaining a positive and supportive community.
>(A) All discussion related to the ongoing lawsuit concerning Harvard's admission policies AND all discussion related to affirmative action in general must be done on the megathread. Any thread aimed at starting discourse outside the megathread will be removed.
>(2) This is a subreddit dedicated to the undergraduate and transfer admissions process. Keep discussion on topic. Spam (any off-topic and low quality post), solicitations, 'chance me' posts, or other off-topic posts are subject to removal here.
>(3) Do not post personally identifying/sensitive information (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, school name, etc). Attempting to solicit, reveal, or share personal information about others will also be strictly prohibited under the penalty of a ban.
>(4) Use descriptive titles. "HELP", "Urgent!!!!!", and otherwise obnoxious titles may be removed at moderator discretion.
>(5) When asking advice, provide as much pertinent info as possible (e.g. SAT/GPA/URM, grade, location, etc.).
>(6) Do not encourage people to lie on applications, plagarize essays, or otherwise do unethical things. Do not solicit information on how to do such things yourself. Posts explicitly condoning such behavior will be removed and users will be banned at mod discretion.
