Kind of throws a monkey wrench into the whole "retake/reapply" deal, doesn't it?
Not for this guy, unless he would really love to end up at Vandy. I sort of doubt that, given the existence of this thread. Sounds like his goal is to have more/better options next time around, and without a sloppy app a 173/3.7 should cruise into the mid T-14.
Now if he had strong ties to the South and really wanted to end up there, Vandy with 100K would be a fine option.
Yes. But more broadly for other applicants it might be worth it to consider the ramifications of retaking if you're accepted to a school that you'd be fine with attending.
Is it worth burning that bridge to retake and possibly get into a better school?
