As for Georgetown, it's kind of 50/50. You have the typical stats of a typical GULC student- however, many with those stats don't get in. I'd say ED would give you a boost but you can get in without it.


If you don't have a 170 or a 3.85 you don't have a shot at UVa if you have white skin.
This is pretty true. Don't lean on VA residency unless you have 170+.

Or GULC, for that matter, whose medians for the full-time and part-time program combined were 170 and 3.67. So does he have the typical stats of a GULC student? I guess that depends on whether or not the typical GULC student is below both medians. My instinct, and elementary school education, say no. Also, "many with those stats don't get in"? Try everyone with those stats was waitlisted.

Thanks guys for the advice. I just feel like i have one of the worst possible GPA/LSAT combos. I'm right at the border and have a high chance of being out of the t14.

I'm open to going to any school in the t14. I just chose Georgetown because I live close to there and UVA because I did UG there.

So from what you guys are telling me, my best bets are Cornell, Michigan, and Duke? What exactly is the likelihood i don't end up at Michigan or Duke with ED? And should I apply as soon as possible or wait for my October score and then apply?

FYI: I already graduated. What kind of work experience should I pursue to be competitive at Northwestern?

Oops.. I thought GULC's median LSAT was a 169. Forget that then..

Makes sense, I thought the VA residency would have helped.

If you don't have a 170 or a 3.85 you don't have a shot at UVa if you have white or yellow skin.

It does help, if you have above 3.85 or 170.

If you feel like you do well in October, send in apps optimistically as soon as possible, and maybe hold out on an ED until you have the score back, so you can best decide how to apply it. If you feel unsure, I'd send out the apps with an ED to wherever you think you could get in with the 169. My advice would be to apply to Michigan or Duke with that ED (assuming 169+unsure performance in October). I think Michigan is the highest ED you can hope for with a 50/50 chance, and Duke might actually be a little tougher (if this year was any indication). Since most apps won't be accepted until October 1st at the earliest, and the test is the 9th, I'd wait till after the test to send them, either way (except to maybe your safety schools based on your current numbers). That said, have them (the applications) ready to be sent.

My bad for responding so late, but thanks for the advice. It really helped me out a lot. I am really liking the idea of going to Michigan and will ED there.

What is the likelihood that I get locked out of the t14 though? Should I feel reasonably comfortable about getting into Cornell?

Can anybody recommend any schools 14-25 schools for me?

Don't forget that Michigan ED requires a summer start on June 1, instead of the normal fall start in late August.

Which is awesome. For some of us out of college, starting in June sounds a whole lot better than August.

Yeah, but you end up paying extra tuition for 3L spring or graduating early and waiting for your job to start. I guess that's outweighed by having 3 semesters of grades by OCI.
