T-14 Top 10%, what should I do?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 04, 2013 12:35 am

Hello:
I go to a lower T-14 and am in the top 10% (based on past statistics, I'm about .1 above the cut-line). Though I like the school itself, I really hate the geographic location I'm at and would like to transfer up to an urban school. I am thinking about ED'ing to Chicago, but also maybe want to try H, C, or N, especially since I want to work in NY after graduation. If I want to work in NY, are H, C, or N substantially better? Also, I have a perhaps unreasonable fear that my grades this semester were "lucky" and that I might do worse this semester, in which case I would've lost myself all four possibilities. Would love any insight. Thanks!

While I am not totally sure of how great your chances are, my gut says to not ED at Chicago. There seems like there could be a real chance to get a C or N, which would be better if you definitely want New York (even if only marginally better), but I would leave open the chance at H. And you can still apply to Chi RD.
