Postby Jerry Callo » Mon Oct 10, 2011 10:30 pm

Any shot at NYU Ed or should I shoot for Georgetown Ed? Any advice is appreciated


FYI: I originally posted this in what are my chances but was advised to post here to possibly get more responses

Thanks

I'm not sure about NYU, but Georgetown you definitely have a shot. I wouldn't ED though, especially applying early.

You definitely have a shot at Georgetown RD, so I wouldn't ED there. If you really have your heart set on NYU, then ED'ing might be a good option. If you look at LSN from last years cycle you'll see that there were about 3 URMs with similar #'s to you that got accepted to Georgetown.

If you take a look at LSN, almost all URM's with your #'s got waitlisted/rejected from Columbia. Then again with URM cycles you never know what will happen.

you'd need a couple more points b/c your gpa is pretty low

A couple of more points for Columbia or the T14 in general?

It's hard to say. URM splitters are impossible to predict, but if you check LSN, you may find some people with those stats in the CCNMVP range
