Is it worth it to ED with my numbers?

Postby jjcorvino » Wed Oct 19, 2016 10:34 pm

3.41/177 , is it worth it to apply ED anywhere? I am mostly concerned about scholarship money. I know that I have a fair chance at getting in anywhere except HYS (longshot at HS). However, northwestern offers 150k for an early decision and I feel confident I would get in with those numbers. Any thoughts?

With those numbers you should ONLY apply ED if it will guarantee a full ride such as with NW. you are well above their 75th for LSAT, and they are rumored to be splitter friendly...

Right, I guess the question is if NW is worth that money? Or is it better to try to get into a Columbia/Chicago?

Where do you want to work and what kind of work do you want to do?

I want to work in Chicago or New York. In the long term I would like to be in house at a company (general counsel), short term, big law.

I guess that is my question, is NW worth it? Or would I get similar cash no matter what? If not, is the value of that money worth missing out on higher ranked schools?

With your GPA, HYS are out, so I would strongly consider NU ED over Columbia/Chicago.
