164 3.60 What do you guys think?

Postby traehekat » Thu Jan 07, 2010 3:25 am

Okay, I finally have almost all of my applications in and I just want to get everyone's input once and for all on my chances.

164/158/Cancel, 3.60
Huge upward grade trend
Top 10 Public
Work experience, tied to personal statement.
Average LORs.

American University
Boston College
Boston University
Colorado
DePaul
Florida
Illinois
Iowa
Indiana Bloomington
Loyola Chicago
North Carolina (not in-state, fwiw)
Notre Dame
OSU
Penn State (fee waiver)
Santa Clara (fee waiver)
William and Mary
Wisconsin

I feel like I am heading for a lot of waitlists, but I am really shooting for somewhere in the T20-30. Illinois, Indiana, Notre Dame, and Iowa are all top choices (Midwest preference), but I would be thrilled to end up at UNC.

Thanks everyone.

I think you are in for sure at Indiana (check out LSN, looks like they love 164s) and Iowa, probably with some $, Notre Dame and Illinois, its harder to say. Iconsidered a lot of those schools at one point so I have a decent idea on them, but I'm hardly an expert.
Good luck

Just predictions. I really think you have a good shot at Iowa and IUB, though.

The TLS profile of GWU says some students complain about being in the shadow of GULC. I applied to American thinking if they threw me some money then I may consider being in DC, but GWU just seemed like a reach to me anyway. I may do a few more applications in the next few days to round it out, and GWU will be a a consideration.

if your filling out more apps you might wanna try throwing an app to virginia. you're a stretch but apparently they've extended the ED program and you can ask for a fee waiver (they give em out like its nothing). worth the extra 20 minutes of your life. you never know.
