178/3.65 Ivy Leauge, and URM. Come on now. That's not a low GPA.

I'm not optimistic in regards to scholly $$, I just don't want to get shut out of any of the T-14. I know splitter cycles are unpredictable, but URM splitter cycles are an entire different animal. Not enough data out there. I get tired of URM's being timid in revealing their stats. Seems somewhat counter productive to have to PM everyone for their stats. I honestly wouldn't care what got me into a great school or what anyone thought about those stats.

are you a non-URM? if so, no scholarships anywhere in the t14 even with a 180

I was 3.4/175 and I got substantial offers from several T-14 schools.

Why UT is the second best non t13 in the nation.

Currently sitting at 170 without scholarships and trying to determine if its worth the pain of a retake. Thanks for the advice in advance.


I am below 3.3 and approx 170. I received $ from the one T14 I applied to. At the end of the day though it doesn't make a difference. It is still a shit ton of money to attend.

make a new thread
the information in this one is now outdated and inaccurate, bumping it will mislead readers who don't realize the thread is four years old
