In except for UVA and maybe Georgetown FT. FWIW, I was accepted to PT only with slightly better numbers.

Aiming too low! Apply to MVP, Northwestern, and Cornell.

congrats! those are great stats. only downside to GULC is that you waited til January to apply, so the odds are down a bit. But, most likely, PT. good luck!

Thanks for all the responses!

I also applied to Duke and Cornell in the T14 (in addition to GULC and UVA). Didn't particularly feel like living in PA or MI, so didn't apply there. I also was under the impression that NU wanted more significant WE than I have?

One question about GULC: I checked "both PT and FT" on my application. Consensus on whether this is good/bad/indifferent with respect to odds of admission?

Still, I think that GULC (either PT or FT) is my #1 choice, so any more thoughts there?

Thanks so much for all your responses! ;)

2 years is the sweet-spot of WE for NU. 170/3.2 seems to have a decent shot according to LSN.

Wow, it's hard to believe that NU dips that low in GPA just for a median LSAT. Even UVA has an informal GPA cutoff around 3.5/170.

Is it? UVA has a larger pool to choose from, having 10% more applicants/seat and admitting lots of people straight from UG. Moreover, UVA likely has better yield for admits in the 170/3.5-3.8 range. NU trades off GPA to maintain the 166-172 LSAT range and the 80% with 2 years of WE stat.
