URM..Surprising Cycle So Far - Which T14 Should I Apply To?

Postby carlkenneth » Mon Jan 11, 2010 3:20 pm

So I'm having a good cycle so far, got into my top choice (Wash U). Now I'm thinking of applying for a T14 just for the heck of it. Here are my stats:

2.8/158 (avg of 2 scores)
URM-AA
6 Years Work Exp in Non-Profit Sector incl 3 years senior mgmt
Several other strong softs
Pretty good personal statement

Which T14 should I apply to? I'm considering Northwestern or Cornell. If anyone has any insight I'd be extremely grateful.

Well, I think if you are applying just for the heck of it you should apply to the place that you would most likely want to go! i know it is kind of shallow advice, but it seems that any T14 would be a reach, so why not apply to the one that appeals to you the most

True, but it would be great to apply to the school where I have even a slim shot at getting accepted rather than one that's completely unrealistic.

Cornell


If you are looking for the one you are most likely to be admitted to then TITCR.

Definitely Cornell, and if you have money for another, try Michigan as well for a Hail Mary.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Cornell it is. Wish me luck!
