No kidding.annacf wrote:Anyway, just want to contribute. I am 168, 3.87 and I got in ED to GW. I read some negativity on here, people saying you needed 170+ to get it and it affected me. But apparently that is not so. It's great to see so many people with similar stats are getting into such impressive schools!
I have the same numbers as you! I'm in at Georgetown, UCLA, and Northwestern (haven't heard from any other schools yet). I'm not sure what to think about the negativity re scores < 170. I understand that I'm below the 25th percentile for some of my schools, but I feel like my transcript, my extracurricular experience, and my work experience (not to mention the fact that I can write pretty well) might push me over a hump for some of them. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself. Hooray for semi-reverse splitters!
Checkin' myself in.
