Where should I ED?

Postby Paraflam » Sat Sep 01, 2012 2:55 pm

Trying to decide between UVA and Michigan. I realize my chances aren't great at either school, but which school do you think I've got a better shot at with a 3.75/166? Thanks!

You're below both of Michigan's medians and even more behind UVA's. You have a very, very small chance and you already know this. Is retaking an option? If not, Michigan is a (marginally) better choice.

You have no chance at all at UVA and about a .05% chance at Michigan so I guess Michigan.

Yeah, I realize I should probably just save the app fee and not bother. But with dropping application numbers, I figured I'd throw a hail mary for the hell of it. Thanks for the responses

Michigan I guess. But the real answer is retake.

Unfortunately retaking isn't an option. Looks like I may have a shot at Cornell, no?

You don't even have a chance at UCLA. Work really hard on the LSAT, and get a 172+ in June.

Think about it this way. Would you rather be graduating from CCN in four years, or Pepperdine in three?

Retaking is always an option.

Not really. Why exactly is retaking not an option?

You are drastically overestimating the boost that an ED gives

Pretty sure hes maxed out retakes and would have to sit out 2 cycles.

Para, I can understand why you would like to avoid that. I think Cornell is definitely your best T14 bet.
