3.5/163 (AA/MA) How high will this take me?

Postby xwing_redleader » Fri Oct 28, 2011 4:44 pm

After receiving my score, I was feeling like I'd NEED to apply ED just to get into a T14, but apparently, that's not the case.

I've got strong softs, first-generation college student, came from a top public school. So how high can I realistically go?

UCLA/USC?
Duke/Virginia?
Boalt/Mich?
Columbia/NYU?
Yale/Stanford?

If you are an AA/MA male, then apply to all of the Top 14.

Probably not Yale or Stanford. You have a shot everywhere else, though.

^ OP's cycle will be better. Schools are considerably more generous to double-URMs for obvious reasons.

Minority cycles are hard to tell. Apply broadly and see what comes in. HYS are out for sure, but you will get into UCLA/USC for sure and probably even MVPB

This. I'd apply CCN down.
