3.9, 168 - Cornell?

Postby dph5039 » Sat Sep 04, 2010 8:07 pm

One of my top choices is Cornell. With the increase in applications do you think the median LSAT will jump enough to substantially lower my chances?

No, you will almost certainly get in. Just put together a solid app.

Penn and Mich round out the top 3 as of now. I'm thinking my best shot is Cornell though.

I am going to apply. I know I am within their number ranges, but from what I've heard their decisions can be a bit unpredicatbale, so we'll see.

Penn looks rough for your numbers on LSN, but you have a perfectly decent shot at UM. I would make sure to apply to Northwestern if you have WE, and Duke and UVA may be worth apps too (as well as Berkeley).

Yes, I'm going to apply to all of those (as well as GULC). I figure I should get at least a couple acceptances from the bunch.

I have the same numbers as you, but no work exp and I applied in January. I got dinged at Mich and Berkeley, in at Cornell and UVA, and waitlisted at Penn.

I'm attending UVA right now (and maybe I've been drinking the kool-aid, but I freaking love it here).

OP could also apply ED to Michigan to increase his chances there. If reject, then late ED UVA.
