Looking at NYU, Duke, Georgetown,Vandy


You'll probably get GULC and Vandy. You likely won't get Duke and NYU. I don't think Vandy is worth it for you, and you'll have to think hard about whether GULC is.

Only transfer if you get H AND if it would be cheaper then wherever you currently go. You're in easily at CLS/NYU but I don't see either as worth it for you.

3.83 at Top 30. I don't have my rank yet (and my school only releases 5 point percentage bands anyway). Historically the cutoff for top 5 percent has been 3.7ish I believe, but who knows. At a CA school and want to practice in CA. CA resident too.

Already applied to Berkeley and Stanford. Applying to Harvard, Columbia, and maybe Chicago or Penn.

Alright long shot here. UCLA from a 45-55 in LA market. should land right in the top 20%. I have a summer associateship at big law, don't know if that helps or not. Is there a chance or is it pointless?

If 3.7 is top 5%:
IN at Berkeley, Penn
LIKELY IN at Columbia
MAYBE at Chicago (small class size)
LIKELY OUT at Harvard
OUT at Stanford (unless S undergrad or one of your recommendations is from a S alumni who will go to bat for you).

Just try to get an offer from your SA firm and then you're in good shape, school ranking be damned.

That said, since your school is the in the LA market, I'd imagine a lot of people higher than you in terms of rank will probably apply, so at top 20% it may be too competitive. Like I said, focus on getting an offer.

Yes for HCCN, no for Y... but acutally maybe seeing as you published. Would you take Y over H if you got both?

I'm not very familiar outside the T14 but I doubt it. Isn't GW better than the rest, anyways?

Yes at CNP. It actually matters if you are 1 or 2 for H, though. If you have WE, you should be good. If not, be happy with Columbia.

Probably a decent shot, but you should be warned that sports entertaniment law is an overcrowded field.

Berkley will be tough without west coast ties, but you should get one of CNP. Don't bother with NW given your current position.

Likely out at CCNP (but probably worth applying to CLS/NYU/Penn)
Good chance at MCNG (but be forewarned about Cornell's OCI rule)
Don't both with UVA/Duke (class sizes are too small)

I have no idea. To be honest, I think I probably won't even end up applying to Y as it's such a long shot and I'm pretty cash strapped right now. Just really hoping borderline marks and a few interesting resume points will be enough to nudge me into H. I'd really like to be able to consider academia in the future.

My final list. Still waiting on one LOR, but should have these in early next week.

T40, top 8%

Harvard
Columbia
NYU
Penn
Michigan
UVA
Duke
Northwestern
U Wash (safety for scholly negotiation purposes)

Let the madness begin. I'm going to be thrilled with any T14 acceptance.
