Help make the most of a fellow splitter

Postby adamwest142 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 3:10 pm

3.47 uGPA
171 LSAT second attempt (first attempt = 161)

I'm applying literally across the board barring HYS (and have realistic expectations of my prospect at CCN)
Want to do biglaw initially, and I like the northeast market

Can I expect $$ from any T-14s?

Where should I ED?

Thanks

I think there is a lot of hope for you this cycle! We have similar numbers and I applied last year. Idk about $$$ but you'll definitely get $/$$ (and probably more than me because ~3.5>>>~3.4 when it comes to money, in my semi educated opinion).

Are you dead set on applying somewhere ED? NYU/Penn/Chicago (depending on Chicago's median this year?) seem like great options if you are willing to pay sticker.

These days your chances should be pretty good at NYU and Penn RD. Apply throughout the T-14 and try to leverage scholarships.

Not to derail, but sooner or later it has to bottom and that will likely happen in order of rank. No one obviously wants to go to school x at sticker and then find a year or two later they could've got a full-ride at the same place or gotten into a far better school. But the timing is anything but predictable. LSATs administered are probably the best leading indicator we have and they are still declining.

Interesting, so let's say Penn is for sure my top choice. Across the board you all recommend I still apply RD even if I stand the chance of getting rejected?

Do you have a LSN account I could view? Thanks

Applying ED will cost you tens of thousands of dollars, but it would pretty much lock up Penn. I don't think ED makes sense unless you simply can't leave Philadelphia for law school. Just do as many of the optional essays as you can with your Penn app and you should be in good shape.
