3.82/163 (AA Male)

Postby brooklynballers » Sat Feb 20, 2010 4:32 pm

Applying for this upcoming cyle:
Top10 Undergrad
Decent letter of recs. 2 from profs I did research with, 1 from an attorney I interned for.
Work ~20 hours a week.
A lot of volunteering with underprivileged students in school and also sports.
Strong PS and DS talking about my rough upbringing.

Chances at:
Columbia
Harvard
Stanford
NYU
Upenn
UCLA

P.S. Would ED'ing to Columbia give me a better shot?

In at some places, out at others, ED gives you a better shot, you'll probably get a T14.

I know an AA male with a 164/3.84 who is in at HLS right now. So I wouldn't suggest you ED anywhere.

ED at Columbia if you want, but I think you have a very strong chance at getting accepted without ED.

Blanket the entire T14. You'll definitely get some great offers.

I'd say throw a few apps to non-t14's just to see what kind of schly $$$$ you can get.

+1
If you can stomach the thought an extra few points on your LSAT could really make some serious magic happen. But if thats a no go - you'll still get T14.
