Worth it to apply to H? 3.94/169

Postby M458 » Thu Nov 15, 2012 7:23 pm

Have posted a what are my chances thread, but consensus is mixed whether I'm considered a URM or not and I figured you guys might have more insight into the matter. Not a citizen or resident, so an International, but have lived here most of my life and did undergrad here. I was born in Mexico, so curious if I'd get the Mexican-American "boost" during apps.

B/c I'm not eligible for loans, I applied ED to Northwestern hoping for the scholarship. 3.94, 169, 2+ years work experience--any chance I end up getting in ED and getting the scholarship?

Other side of the question, I'm planning on retaking, but I've gone ahead and applied to most of the lower T-14 (fee waivers!). Should I go on and apply to H and CCN right now? I think if they consider me a URM I have a great shot, otherwise...definitely need the extra few points from the December re-take and would wait until that score comes back before applying.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Absolutely yes. You might not get the "boost", but totally worth the app fee to find out.

Thanks--do you recommend applying now or waiting until my December results come back? Just don't want them to reject me before they even see the December score!

May as well wait. A January app isn't going to affect things that much.

I think on numbers and experience alone you're very competitive for Northwestern.

Hopefully, you'll get some "boost" also.
