Torn on using the ED...

Postby Deuce » Mon Aug 02, 2010 11:03 pm

I've been going back and forth with myself on how to use my ED. I'm 3.88 168, and have been researching extensively to try and make up my mind but am always flip flopping. The two options I pretty much see for myself are...

1. Shoot for CCN. Upside: if accepted, no question in my mind I'd love to attend at sticker. Downside: could possibly be a waste of an ED, low chance to get in.

2. Use it for 7-14. Upside: Boost my odds of acceptance. With my numbers, I feel like I need to do all I can to increase my odds as my numbers are dicey for 7-14. Downside: I'll always wonder what could have been.

I know I'll be going back and forth on this one for a while, but was just wondering if anybody else out there has any insight or went through this process as well. Thanks!

ED to CCN, if it fails there will still be time to ED to UVA (which will love your GPA).

How will there be time? ED don't matter anyway.

If you aren't absolutely sure, don't ED. Though as mentioned, you could probably ED to UVA assuming they extend it again like they did this year.

Your >75th GPA, and at the 25th LSAT. I think NYU ED is the way to go. Obviously I had to sift through a lot of rejections there, but there were a handful of people with your numbers accepted without ED. So I think you have some shot if you ED, enough of a shot to forgoe ED'ing at any school ranked 7-14.

OP, you should still ignore this person. NYU is still a good shot for you.

ED to your number 1 school and only after you are 110% positive you want to go there.( I would suggest visiting the school during the semester if you havent done so allready)
