Note: They also give solicited need based fee waivers. I got one this morning by just emailing and asking for it.

What's your rationale for that? I'm looking at all three and I would actually lean away from UVA, probably because I want to work in NYC and UPenn has proximity while Mich has a slight edge over Virginia here.

Those two campuses look amazing though, and in different ways.

If you aren't already sold on a school, why are you EDing? Just curious

Oh got it. I misread, thought you said you were apply ED somewhere rather than sometime, but that makes sense. Hope it works out. I think your LSAT gives you a shot, so in your case ED works well.

I have a bunch of friends here. Every single one of them LOVES Charlottesville, which surprised me. It seems like a nice place, but there's a big difference between "Ya, I like it here" and "Oh my goodness this place is amazing!" All of them (okay, so it's only 3 people) were of the latter sort.

Great info about application fee waiver. I just emailed admissions and they replied back within 5 minutes with an application fee waiver code... $$$

Checking in, plan on ED'ing with 3.88/165. Solicited a fee waiver by shooting them an email.

Sorry. just saw this. It's mostly for aesthetic reasons, and I know a handful of people of went to V for undergrad and said they absolutely loved Charlottesville. In terms of NYC biglaw, Penn is definitely the best choice, but I think for DC and clerkships, V tends to do better than its peers (I think). I think the Michigan campus looks incredible, but I have no real draw there (though I am applying there and would take it over V if they offered me more $)
