Good lord, submit your applications already. You can continually update them on a rolling basis. You're almost late to be starting cycle if the schools don't have them yet.

Is Y even worth the app fee? Top 30, top 1% of class. 2 years non-profit WE prior to law school. Federal District intern this summer. Big state undergrad. No publications, no save the world awards, etc. If my odds are greater than 5% I'd probably apply. Thoughts?

The worst that can happen is you're out some petty cash and they say no. The best is that you go to Yale. The best can't even have a chance at happening if you don't apply.

~$100 is a small price to pay in the long-run for a shot at the top. What else were you going to productively do with the money? Get a sweet pedicure?

3.70 at DCGN (approx. top 20%) + 2 years WE + family reasons to be in NYC/Boston. Aiming to transfer to CLS/NYU/H. Chances?

Pretty much none at H. A little worse than 50/50 at CN I'd venture.

Strong ties to NYC with excellent W/E there between college and law school.
Want to work at big law, eventually do public service in NYC
Not getting any $ at current school

Chances at Columbia, NYU, Penn, Cornell, Michigan, Fordham?

Thanks.

Probably not super competitive at CN, but should get something else, either Mich or Cornell. Have you considered GULC? Don't go to Fordham - they have a negative transfer OCI policy.


Update: Got Columbia, Penn and Michigan.
