3.22 / 168 URM MA
Top 15 public school grad, worked part-time throughout school (to address GPA concerns)
My main strategy is to ED at UVA at this point
Hey I've seen your posts in other places, there's not much I can say about your numbers cuz there very little data for MAs. Check lawschoolnumbers.com, but I don't think EDing to UVA is a good idea IMO. Perhaps other posters like Nova or twenty will reply.
Yeah that's the gist I've been getting.
In your opinion, do you think it's a bad idea because of $ or because I may have a shot at a school ranked a few slots higher?
I honestly don't know. You're URM which makes your cycle already unpredictable. On top of that you're a splitter which adds to the unpredictability.
What I can tell you is the following, if you ED to UVA you won't get money. Also your gpa bars you from CA schools which are gpa whores. If I was in your position, I would consider retaking the LSAT. I would also apply regular decision, might get some $ at the lower t-14. If I didnt get into a school I wanted this cycle, then I would apply next year to UVA on the ED track.
