lot of risk here
you're applying with 169/3.49. you'll have objectively very good options outside of the t14. i would see what the regionals offer, and then compare it to your t14 aid


Why not blanket the lower t-14? I can see OP getting into the lower t-14 and leveraging scholarships (if they come up)... outside of that, good regional + ties seem to be a consensus, no?

I think a 169 gets a better t-14 offer than uva at sticker in this cycle, but regardless you should throw the apps out there

The philosophy of Common Core is invading the community college scene, so the freedom to do what I want in the classroom is being shut down. In other words, what I like about the job is being taken away from me and it's not going to get better from here.


This really isn't the place for this, but I'm curious 1) how/where you see CC affecting a college class and 2) why you're assuming CC will be adopted and around 10 years from now?

do you want to be an attorney? or are you just collecting degrees because you're not happy with your current economic circumstance? I don't understand people who go to law school without a specific interest in practicing law (which the MA in english rather confounds without a pretty strong explanation), and I really don't understand people who borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars to go to law school without a specific interest in practicing law.
