EDing to U of VA?

Postby grassynome » Tue Oct 09, 2012 12:49 am

Quick question for you guys,
Is EDing to the University of Virginia worth it, if I have around a 160 lsat score with a 3.95 cumulative gpa? I realize that I would most likely be paying sticker, which does not sound fun. So my question is whether paying sticker for this school is worth it?

(I am guessing that is around the score I got on this past october test, and unfortunately I am maxed out on my LSAT attempts till next year so retakes are not an option.)

Why waste that GPA on a mediocre lsat?

Retake and shoot for a 170+ and enjoy a T6 school or UVA with $

I am maxed out I have taken the LSAT 3 times now. I was pretesting finally at 165, and have a historically crappy record of poor standardized test scores. I was amazed that I was able to get it up to 165 finally.

At a 3.95/165 you will be better served EDing to Chicago, NYU or Penn and then EDing to UVA late in the cycle if your choice of the first 3 doesn't work out. I think EDing is a reasonable decision though as there are hundreds of individuals with numbers just like yours and it's kind of a crap shoot on who will take you RD.

Is it worth it at sticker? We aren't familiar with you or your families' income

The point is that perhaps it will be worth it if you or someone you know can comfortably foot the bill. If you are taking out 100% loans -- probably not. It's your responsibility to take a look at employment outcomes from UVA and determine if they are worth sticker price. Everyone's situation is different.

I already got a fee waiver from the Dean at a law school fair last week. Definitely EDing.

I'm confused. So do you have a 160 or a 165?

Don't come here until you have a legitimate score.
