As an Int'l Affairs girl with identical numbers from this past cycle I can tell you that I got -

Northwestern- Hold >> Accepted (attending)
Georgetown- Waitlisted >> Rejected

I didn't apply to the other schools on your list, but feel that ND would be a pretty safe bet. And law schools seem to love engineers, so you might have better luck than me- especially if you are looking at IP programs.

In case you are wondering, my other rejections were Columbia & NYU and I was accepted at Fordham & BC.

Good luck! Yay splitters!!

Thanks for the help and congrats on Northwestern!

Northwestern would be my top school, do you have any advice or anything else that you did that you think helped you get admitted there?

As a Bioengineering major with a slightly lower GPA and the same LSAT from a major top public, I was...

Northwestern- hold- waitlisted- accepted
Georgetown- "Preferred" waitlist
UCLA- waitlist

I think some schools (like Northwestern) really respect engineering majors. Or I was just lucky with NU. Are you straight out of undergrad? That will make Northwestern more of a stretch.

Yes I am right out of undergrad which probably will not help me with Northwestern. I appreciate the info though! are you attending NU next year?

If you really seriously want NU, ED there. You're not likely to get much if any $$ if you RD, so if you really want it and are willing to pay sticker, ED makes sense.

I haven't decided yet. It's tempting, but sticker price is a LOT of money. Good luck with your applications!
