3.6/173 ED Columbia or Chicago?

Postby absolutazn87 » Wed Aug 18, 2010 10:32 am

I have a 3.6 / 173 but I have multiple LSATs (previous 166, 165) though I was hit with bronchitis and a fever the time I hit the 165.

I'm trying to decide whether to ED Columbia or Chicago.

I know that Chicago explicitly says that they take the highest LSAT score only. Columbia is a bit more vague and takes a more holistic approach.

Do you think I need to ED? If so, which one do you guys recommend?

Any strong preference between living in New York City versus Chicago ?

I live in New York now and love it. But a change of scenery wouldn't be terrible. I'm also not set on practicing in New York. Considering west coast.

Hmm, not sure I would ED if I were you. You could get into CCN without ED and you should get scholarship offers at those just below that.

With a 3.6 173, he aint getting any of CCN without ED. ED to Chicago less risky than ED to CLS.

While this shows that ED might not be necessary, Chicago remains OP's best shot considering the prior test scores.

I hope Patriot realizes that the examples he found probably have WE, and or damn good softs. Without those, OP is out without ED.

Did you even look at the profiles? There are even more then that I just didn't list them all. Most of them are very generic. You can continue to say what you think your opinion is, or you can consider evidence that strongly suggests you are wrong. Sorry, but you continue to post things on these chance me forums that are just plain wrong from everything that has been suggested. OP is very likely in without ED.

Now if you are sure you have a preference for one or the other, ED. But if you are unsure exactly where to go and if you might take financial aid you shouldn't ED.
