OP has a 3.77, NU's median GPA is 3.8, yes?


You're right. I was looking at ok'd numbers from LSN. OP is at 75th for LSAT though, and being just under GPA median with good sifts and WE, it may be worth a shot.

Agreed. I think OP would stand a good shot.

You could go to a T20 with a huge scholarship, or even to a lower T14 and likely get a little money thrown your way. Forget Baylor and don't look back.

OP, apply to WUSTL - Chicago, or even higher if you want HYS (unless you don't want biglaw, then maybe WUSTL - Michigan).

Apply to every special scholarship those schools have that you qualify for, wait to hear back and then start negotiating schools.

After you have the offers in hand from the schools that you got accepted at, pick the one you are happiest with.

A half to full ride at a top 14 is not out of the question. A full-ride isn't likely, but it's possible. You should get close to a full ride at WUSTL, and may even get it at Vandy.

Don't go to Baylor. If you want, you can ask them to move your acceptance and scholarship to the fall start, but you will get similar offers from at least one top 20.

(I had the same choice as you with slightly worse numbers and it worked out very well)
