If I don't get in to NW Ed, I want to apply to UCLA by Nov. 15.
If your stats are what you posted elsewhere on TLS, you're not going to get into NU ED. That's the unfortunate reality. NU ED is to pick up URMs with mid 3 GPAs and mid 160s LSATs and non-URMs that break both medians/could go to CCN/MVP. It's not meant to boost the chances of fringe candidates.
I have read that it does give a small boost if/when the fringe candidate gets held since it's a testament to their commitment to NW (probably speaks volumes compared to a Why NW).
Not sure how true that is, but ED to Northwestern couldn't hurt.
