168 & 3.61: Chances in top 14?

Postby dogear » Thu Nov 04, 2010 10:33 pm

Any guesses at my shot at some of the following schools?

Also, my GPA has trended upward siginificantly (3.92 my senior year). Is this something worth pointing out in any part of my application?

Ohio State
Michigan
Cornell
UCLA
UT Austin
Notre Dame
Wisconsin
Boston College
Georgetown
Virginia

Any reach schools in particular that I should be considering?

GPA trend will not matter. Only realistic T14 shot is Cornell, but you are probably a WL. Texas on down are all definitely worth apps. Decent shots at UT, slimmer shot at UCLA, but USC is in play if you're interested. In at ND, Wisco, BC. Write the optional essays for ND and BC. BC yield protects a little bit, and ND likes PS for some reason, though you're probably safe.

I didn't see it on his list, but sure, why not? Looking like a WL, but definitely worth the app.
