3.6/171

Postby nykfan7073 » Sun May 09, 2010 5:00 am

- Do not have great softs..involved in various extracurricular stuff, but not a lot.
- Planning to get first work-experience under my belt this summer.
- Attending top-20 undergrad and planning to apply as early as possible this coming cycle.
- Have not gotten letters of rec yet, they should be ok, nothing special.
- Personal Statement should be good.
- Again, 3.6 GPA and a 171.
- A die-hard Knicks fan so I feel God owes me something.


I am looking at the following schools..
Yale
Harvard
Stanford
Columbia**
NYU**
Berkeley
Chicago
Pennsylvania
Georgetown
UCLA
Texas

** Dream schools, considering doing early decision.

Any feedback would be appreciated..thanks.

Best of luck!

Yale - Out
Harvard - Out
Stanford - Out
Columbia** - WL/Out
NYU** - I think you have a shot here with a well-put together application, apply early and ED
Berkeley - Berkeley was kinder to above median LSAT splitters earlier in the cycle last year, apply early and I think you have a shot.
Chicago - WL/Out
Pennsylvania - In
Georgetown - In
UCLA - In
Texas - In $

Applying ED to Columbia or NYU could help- your chances are better at NYU by the way, if you don't have a preference between these two schools: NYU ED.
Be prepared to settle for a lower T14.

I applied this cycle in november with a 3.6 and 171
Here were my results:

Columbia-Waitlist
NYU Early Decision-Deferred then waitlist
Penn-waitlist
UVA-waitlist
Cornell-In
Georgetown-Waitlist then accepted
BC-waitlist
Fordham-In

Don't ED at Columbia unless you really really want it because it's probably a waste. ED at NYU, it's probably a waste but if you really want to go there it's worth taking the risk.

I also think in at Penn is to optimistic. Most people with 3.6/171 get a waitlist.

I've got very similar stats and slightly better softs. Here's what happened to me:

Columbia** (WL)
NYU** (Ding)
Berkeley (Ding)
Pennsylvania (WL)
Georgetown (In)
Northwestern (In, $$$)
Michigan (In, $$)


NYU frowns upon taking the LSAT twice so that may have hurt me there. Also, I think that not writing a
"Why Penn" was not wise. If I were you, I'd ED at NYU and blanket the top 14. I'm sure you'll get in somewhere great. Good luck!!

for me, I had slightly different #s: 3.65, 170, but stronger softs, and cycle as follows:
harvard:wl
columbia:wl
nyu: in
chicago:wl
berkeley: out
penn: wl
mich: wl/in
cornell: in
georgetown: in

didn't ED at nyu, but def got lucky on that one. i also applied in mid-december, so if you apply early and ED, you are definitely in the game. spend some good time building your application and personal statement. I think Columbia ED would be a waste, but you r a good applicant for MVP and pray for the NYU ED. Good luck!

YHS are definitely out with your low GPA. Berkeley is most likely out as well for the same reason. Columbia ED is also a waste because you have auto-ding numbers there (below both medians). You have a small chance at Chicago, NYU, and Penn, so maybe ED at NYU.
