167, 3.58.

Postby agoldst426 » Sat Sep 11, 2010 2:37 pm

I have had two legal related internships including an LOR from one of them. SIGNIFICANT upward trend. I also am writing an addendum to explain one of my semesters being significantly lower. B.S. in Financial Economics.

American University (applying to JD/MBA program)
Cardozo
UConn
Cornell (reach)
Fordham
GWU (applying ED)
Hofstra
University of Minnesota (fee waiver)
UVA (another reach.. is it worth it??)
William & Mary

Should I add more safeties? Likelihood of getting into them? Suggestions of where I could get $$?

I don't think you should have a problem with those.
Where are your reaches??????

I'm no expert, but this looks like a good list. You don't need another safety. I think you have good chances to get some money at W&M, Fordham, Minnesota, and GW (albeit without the full scholarship).

GW is an in. if you get your app in early enough you might even get money. Had a friend get her app in late there, same lsat but lower gpa and no internships, got her acceptance later ten days later.

Cornell and University of Virginia are my reaches. I think they're the only ones of the t14 that I'd have any chance.

I guess I agree that UVA is a reach. But, if you apply ED to Cornell I think you'd have a real good chance

I had numbers very similar to yours and got into a bunch of schools ranked in the 15-30 range, many with good scholarships. I would apply to a few more schools in that range like WUSTL, BU, and BC.

Where the hell is WashU??? It is a very splitter friendly school. You should be in, without ED.

WUSTL? The STL stands for St. Louis

Add the following:

USC
UCLA
Vandy
Wash U.

You don't need UConn or Hofstra, unless you have 0 softs and you do not plan to have a strong personal statement.

Seems like a good list (Add George Mason as a safety if by chance you are in state VA). Couple notes though - you won't get GW ED because its a full scholarship, but you have a decent chance at RD. It won't hurt to try, but its most likely a wasted opportunity to ED somewhere else if your into that sort of thing. Also someone suggested Cornell ED, but that doesn't exist.

Cornell is out since their new medians are 3.70/168, so unfortunately you don't have a chance at T14.

This is wrong, their medians are 168, 3.7

Also, it seems people are missing that the GW ED program is for a full ride, which the OP will not get. But you could still get in after they shift you to RD.

EDIT: oops posted above.
