Is it too late for MVPD with these numbers and no ED???

Postby FreddyBigShot » Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:26 am

169 LSAT
3.9 GPA

Or should I ED UVA or Duke?

ED to whatever school you like more, otherwise out.

Hmmmm, thanks for the advice. Any reason why you think I'm out? And would I at least be a waitlist? If I applied ear;y next cycle, would I be in? Finally, would I still be in at Cornell at this point?

Yes, you still have a shot at Cornell but you should submit NOW. Also, I'm not sure whether you'd be a waitlist at UVA or Duke, but I think you'd have a good shot at Michigan if you waited and applied early next cycle.

I agree: spend the next few months perfecting your PS and tracking down good LORs, then apply as early as possible to MVP. Make sure you communicate how badly you want to go to each school, even if you have to make it up.

If you really can't wait another year, Cornell or Georgetown would probably still take you.

I think you have good shots at M and D with just RD even this late in the cycle. It is a big advantage to have both GPA and LSAT at or above the school's medians. Obviously time is ticking so you'd better get your apps in ASAP.

I got a scholarship to M with a 3.94 and a 168 but I applied early. If you go next cycle 5 - 14 should all be in play.

I have almost identical numbers except I have 1 previous low 160's LSAT score, and my December LSAT is 1 point higher than the OP's.

Same advice hold for me? Or does 169--->170 make a huge difference?
