ED @GU or GWU?

Postby jessierocks » Fri Nov 23, 2012 4:51 am

Well, I have a LSAT score of 167 in Oct. and a 161 june.
I am an internationally student with an LSAC evaluation of above average and an average grade of 86.35/100
I am hesitating between the ED at GU and that at GWU
The ED at GWU guarantees scholarship. So will it be hard for me to get in?
On the other hand, the ED at GU doesn't.
Which would I have a better chance of getting in?
Or which is more worth applying for?
Really puzzled now and need your advice plz :shock:

As an international student, you probably won't be able to get subsidized loans (at least, from what I understand). I'd apply ED to GWU, and if you don't make that, then sit this cycle out and retake/apply ED to Boston University next year. Don't pay sticker at Georgetown.

Slim chance for Georgetown, but check http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com to form your own opinion.

Why GWU ?

Consider Washington & Lee, Wake Forest & Iowa (among others) if you are seeking scholarship money.

Thx for ur advice.
I can still make for the deadline of ED at BU this year.
Would it be better if I apply for BU first coz maybe I can still try GWU if I am refused?

GWU says they would provide full-tuition scholarship to anyone admitted through the ED process.
Are the two schools mentioned especially generous?

Several midwestern state schools are generous with full-tuition or otherwise substantial scholarships: indiana, iowa, wustl -- but, if you don't want to live and work there after you graduate, it's probably not a good idea to attend.

You probably need a higher LSAT for Georgetown and GWU ED.

You could get into GULC ED and pay full tuition. GWU I'd say no shot at all with 167/0.0... their ED is a full ride so the numbers for ED are a bit higher than their regular cycle numbers, whereas GULC's ED numbers are a bit lower since you'd pay sticker.
