UVA with 60K or ride out the WL at CCN and Penn

Postby b3easy » Tue May 02, 2017 11:09 am

Like the title says those are currently my options. Help me choose. My career goals are Biglaw and a clerkship if I can get one.

My numbers are a 170 and 3.5-3.6 gpa and i'm a Non-URM. I don't see the WL schools giving me money.

Of those options, UVA is the clear choice. You won't get $ from CCN or Penn. Still a lot of debt assuming you are financing with loans though

UVA if those schools don't give you $, but I don't see why you wouldn't just stay on the WL and see if they happen to admit you + give $.

Yeah I agree with Lavitz. It's sort of a false choice right now because you can both deposit at UVA and stay on the waitlists to see what happens. If you get off a waitlist and are offered some aid, come back to us and we can discuss.

I'd ride waitlists and see, but if $ doesn't come through off WL, I'd pick UVA.

That's what I'm doing. I already deposited at UVA I was just curious to see what my chances are for getting off a waitlist and if it's even worth considering.

If you get in off the waitlist and have to pay sticker, then, no, I doubt that any of those options are worth considering.
