I got terrible money and/or waitlisted from all of them. I am not even considering taking out 200k in loans so those are completely out for me. I have friends in biglaw and a lot of it seems decent and interesting, but it's not something I'd pay 200k just to get the chance to do.

I'm a URM so I feel like I underperformed my numbers, possibly because I applied after the deadlines for almost all of these schools.


URM with those numbers? Reapply and enjoy Cornell on a Full ride...

I'd imagine OP could do significantly better than that.

How hard have you tried to negotiate scholarships? Schools should want you to attend with your numbers and URM-status; there might still be hope this cycle.

If you don't mind, what general range of offers are you getting?

I also have similar numbers and got the full ride at WUSTL, plus offers at other T14 with decent $ (60K Cornell, Duke 75K, Michigan 75K, to name the few I was considering).

I'm not URM. If you are a URM you can do so much better. Wait it out 100%
