3.44 169 worth a late T14 app

Postby adammac17 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 6:38 pm

thus far i applied pretty solidly to 20-30 and have got back a few really good acceptances and scholly offers:

UIUC 75k total
IU 140K total
Iowa 140k total
in at WUSTL
in at GW

still waiting to hear from Vandy,Columbia (fee waiver), ND, BU and Cornell

at this stage in the game is it worth it to pony up the cash and take a shot at a few higher schools just to see what if/negotiate for more money, though im not really sure at what school i even could from my list. if so which schools?

thanks

Michigan for sure. Probably have no shot at Gtown, NU, Duke, Penn or UVA.

UM and Cornell are worth it. No other T14's are really too keen on sub170's.

Most of us have grown up and realized that this is not actually true.

But maybe if you wish really hard you can become a unicorn.

I always figured unicorns were meant to be some sort of euphemism.

This, but Duke's Round II ED deadline is the 12th if you do want to take a shot.

Do people really think these numbers have any realistic shot at Michigan?? (not to be disparaging, just curious)

OP, congrats on your acceptances and offers so far, I'm hoping Iowa will offer me something similar (I also got 75 at UIUC), and that offer at Iowa would pretty much make my decision. (168/3.58, retaking in February).

169 is median LSAT. While, the gpa is low, the OP does have a chance with ED.
