3.88 GPA 168 LSAT

Postby Adam68601 » Thu Aug 11, 2016 12:20 am

What's the best school I could probably get half tuition for? What about full?

Could be worth it to throw in an ED at Northwestern -- you are at/above median for both their LSAT and GPA.

This is probably ripe for the classic "blanked the T14, get into 4-5 schools, and play them against each other for money" type approach.

Realistically, I bet you're looking at one of three options: 1. Admission but little money at a Uchicago/Columbia/NYU type school 2. Admission and some to decent $$ at the lower tier of the T14 or 3. a full ride at a state school.

These are all pretty solid choices, so congrats! You'll just have to see how it plays out and what your options end up being.

Look at how much prettier the graph is with a 170

I'd blanket the T-14 except for HYS. Then again, if you could bump up that LSAT a couple points, your options would only be better. What are your career goals? Do you have a market preference?

My GPA was higher (3.9ish) but I ended up with $50k at Northwestern (didn't ED), $50k at Cornell (initially was $40k but used Northwestern/Michigan to negotiate), and $40k at Michigan (initially was $30k but negotiated). I was waitlisted at Harvard/Columbia/Chicago/Berkeley. Got into UVA and NYU as well with like $20k at NYU. I'm going to Michigan.
