171/3.17/URM? (Part Latino)/Good Softs

Postby hendrix » Mon Nov 01, 2010 10:31 am

Pros:

Strong upward trend: I was a drunk, apathetic idiot freshman year, and gradually got better and changed majors. My last 4 semesters were really strong.

Good Softs: 2 years volunteering/non-profit work

URM?: Half Asian, half Latino

Cons:

Bad GPA. I really don't know if I can even hope for T14 :(

If you're Mexican or Puerto Rican, blanket the T-14. If you're not, ED to UVA and blanket the T20.

I thought ED doesn't help. It's probably too late for that anyway, since I won't have my letters until Thanksgiving :(

ED totally helps. UVA and Georgetown don't have ED deadlines.

But anyway, good news, you are indeed a URM. ED is probably not for you. You can totally hope for the T14.

Mexican

Good answer.

Blanked t14, you will at least get into a few of the lower half, maybe one of the t6 will bite if they happen to be lacking hispanic apps.
