If you ED'd to either one you'd get in. This would give you a more than decent shot at both. Without ED, possibly in at Georgetown, WL/reject at UVA.

For UVA, you would almost certainly get in with ED and you would certainly NOT get in without it, with a 3.4/170. Trust me, I have a boring job, no life, and I research these things.

other schools like michigan and penn are up in the air. you have a much better chance at michigan though.


LOL!!!!

In no means am I questioning your research, I am sure you know much more on this topic than I do, but I have seen people from this past cycle with similar numbers to mine not getting in to UVA ED. I was under the impression that they had gotten a little more selective.


They probably ED'd in January or later. ED September 1 and you're golden.

that's what I thought, esp. since he was saying he got in from mich. on down with a 3.1, 170+,
which if it's not real statistical research per se, it at least attests to the fact you have a shot OP

And again regarding your question about retaking the LSAT, going up five points could open up a ton of possibilities

Splitters are hard to predict! On LSN you will see all kinds of crazy numbers. With splitters it mostly comes down to individual applications.

You can get into the schools you want with your current numbers if you ED and do it early in the cycle, next cycle.

5 more points and you probably can get one or more of CCN, especially with an ED. i know lots of people advise against ED, but i really don't mind it because it can give you a great edge if you know you wanna go

What's your opinion on the Boston schools I mention without a retake? I don't mind ED and UVA is a school I would relocate for.

don't give them a second thought. you can do much much better and profit with way better career prospects

edit: unless you are dead set on the area and you can get money from those schools, esp BU which i think is better

I'm currently from the area and like Boston. Since I have no shot at Harvard they are getting strong considerations. The LSAC site gives me less than a 50% chance at BU, hence my pessimistic outlook. Thanks for all your optimism BTW.

paulinaporizkova,

how can one get in GULC yet cannot get in BU? I've seen this often. I've seen people get in at UVA jet get rejectd by Brigham Young?

You really think so? With a 3.3 I don't think that is anywhere close to certain with a 170 (which is GULC median LSAT).

If OP applies September 1st and ED's to either UVa, GULC, Northwestern, Michigan or Duke I bet he will get in, I know a white dude who had a 3.37/170 and got Penn by EDing incredibly early. You can get T14 with your current numbers. If you want BU/BC you can get in with your current numbers regular decision I think.

Moral of the story: ED to your favorite of the above schools early next cycle.

Where are you getting this from? With those numbers (using 3.3) LSP has him at weak consider for GULC.. EA may help chances but thinking that he is a lock if he doesn't screw up the app sounds way too confident to me. Am I missing that OP is URM or something? 170 is often the minimum GULC likes to accept from what I have seen, and that GPA is starting to push it. It sounds like maybe you had a good experience with admissions there, but I don't know that it can be generalized to the extent you are assuming. I may be wrong, but it sounds to me like you are strongly overstating the case for his admission to GULC.

Edit: see next post.

I think maybe I am underestimating the power of a very early ED.. That would be great if you get T14.
