Applying w/Early Decision - how much are chances increased?

Postby lawoftheland » Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:24 pm

Topic: ED applications

How much (and in what way) do you think applying ED influences chances for admission? Does an ED app potentially allow a slight GPA or LSAT variance relative to an adcomm's usual guideline/matrix/etc?

If you'd like, post ED acceptances and figures here in order for the rest of us to get an idea of how much this little "wildcard" affects decisions.

Happy new year - hopefully you're not all hungover still.

It definitely helps. Especially at UVA.

And at Northwestern, even though the Dean claimed it wouldn't really. Everyone above median in one category at NU got in. Including someone with a 2.1 GPA.
