WUSTL ED or try Cornell and Georgetown?

Postby thinkinggggg » Sat Jan 14, 2017 2:51 am

I got a 167 in December test. International student without a gap,evaluation is "above average".
Finaical is my big concern but job prospect matters more. I can't decide whether I should apply WUSTL through ED and therefore, lock a full scholarship or I should try Cornell, Duke, UCB AND Georgetown to see whether I get any luck.
Thinking of retake in June but will miss this cycle and if go with WUSTL ED and get admitted, even have a higher retake score won't change much

Appreciate any comments/advice

WashU throws enough money around and is open to negotiations - don't ED them unless you are okay with potentially working in St. Louis, which is a possibility (not knocking against it, just pointing out in this list of three WashU has the weakest national reach). Better to apply to all three and negotiate them against each other. Others could probably advice you better if they knew your GPA.

WashU does throw money around during their regular decision period, but a 167 might not get you a full ride offer this year, since their medians have gone up. If you're really set on WashU, I'd apply early, because you get the guaranteed full ride.

But based on the rest of your post, I'd recommend sitting out this cycle and retaking for a scholarship where you really want to go.

I agree with the above respondent don't waste an ED at WashU they usually hand out money like its candy on Halloween. Which isn't a bad thing. I would apply to all 4 and see what happens.

Idk what your GPA is but I had the same LSAT and got a ding from Cornell, which seems to be out for blood this year so good luck!
