50-60% at GT
35-45% at B

These two seem to be particularly TTT-friendly.

where do you wanna go? Blanket T7-14 -- 90% sure you'll get one.

EDIT: forgot you were the Penn guy -- 50% if you spin your ties well.

If he goes for an interview or meeting with the school, my opinion is that he should wear some Ben Franklin spectacles and bring a kite with him. When they ask why you brought a kite, you say that its a family thing.

Around top 3% at school ranked 35-45, ranked after first semester (I heard this may help). Good undergrad GPA, not a ton of solid work experience but have some good community involvement/leadership.

Applying GULC EA.

CLS - 35-40%
NYU - 35-40%

Any idea of what I can do to boost my chances?
Out of state resident, but UVA undergrad...
I've also got 2 Calis and got those professors to write my LORs.
NYC-area if that helps for CLS and NYU.
Can I get a hallelujah?

Haha, I think UVA undergrad qualifies as significant ties to VA. From what I've heard, UVA just doesn't really take anyone who's not from VA or at a VA school. 50%.

The two CALIs/LORs should help, as should being at a NYC-area school, but probably not a ton. 40-45%.

Not much more you can do other than keep your grades up. Maybe a sweet summer gig? Great PS?

Chi -- 70%
NW -- WE? 90%
Penn -- 80%
Duke -- 75%

Not considering HYS? I'd give you 40-50% at H.

Im most interested right now in Penn and Michigan. My law school is in a neighboring state to both Penn and Michigan, so Im assuming/ hoping that this might help my chances?

Im also planning on throwing a hail mary at NYU and Columbia. How abysmal are my chances there if Im still #2 at the end of the semester?

I'll bite.

TTT - Midwest
3.67 (PT) on 2.6/2.7 Curve
#1 in class
Good softs, and significant work experience.

Planning on applying to:
GULC (EA), Emory, SMU, Vanderbilt, Duke, GW, Cornell, UH, Columbia, UM-Ann Arbor (Maybe BU, UV)

If I keep my number 1 spot, I'll even give YHS a shot.

Michigan is definitely within reach.

I've never heard of anyone going TTT to C/N but I'm sure it's happened. I'll say 35%.

Whoops, didn't see the PT. No idea, though I'd assume your about 50% at GULC and in on down.
