Any feedback will be appreciated. I got a lot of fee waivers so that is why I am even able to apply to these schools. AA female/158/3.81... Lots of leadership...great internships...great personal statement(so Ive been told lol)... good recommendations

U Penn
Georgetown
Cornell
WUSTL
George Washington
UVA
Vandy
Columbia
U Chicago
Fordham
Brooklyn
Cardozo
University of Buffalo
safeties?
Duke
Washington and Lee

BTW all of you have been really helpful on this forum Thanks!


Obviously glad you have some T14s sprinkled in. I would add more in the range of W&M, Notre Dame, Indiana, BU, BC instead of Brooklyn, Cardozo, Buffalo. The more the merrier because I think if you don't get T-14, then for schools in the Fordham to WUSTL range, the decision may end up be based on scholarship dollars and cost of attendance.

Gotcha. Unless you are talking about practicing in upstate NY, then take Buffalo out of there. If you are extremely risk-adverse instead insert St. John/Rutgers/SHU (to replace that Buffalo) where you should receive full rides.
