A year after graduating, I moved to the east coast to start fresh and with a 3.55 at a new institution, I transferred into a top 20 undergrad where I will graduate this next spring with around a 3.75.

I have strong softs and strong LORS, a decent personal statement, and a 171 on the October administration. My grades however will be calculated as a 3.35.

My top choice is Penn and the remainder of my list include UVA, Michigan, Duke, Cornell, Georgetown, UCLA, and Notre Dame. Is Penn beyond my reach even with an ED? Should I instead ED to UVA or even elsewhere entirely?


I think you have a slim shot at Penn ED (it's hard to say, they've accepted a 3.4x/171 ED before, but that applicant was also from an Ivy undergrad and Penn tends to give a boost to Ivy applicants) but that ED would be more wisely used on UVa or Michigan.

Penn: Unlikely w/o ED, otherwise 50/50
UVA: 50/50
Michigan: 50/50
Duke: 50/50
Cornell: In
Georgetown: 50/50
UCLA: 50/50
Notre Dame: In

Cornell & Notre Dame are your best bets.
Unless you really would rather go to Penn over UVA, I'd advise an ED to UVA- UVA is more splitter-friendly.

The ED deadline would be over by then for UVA, and for any school for that matter.

If I were you, I'd apply ED to Penn. You've got a decent shot at Michigan, UVA, Cornell, etc. anyway without ED.

Incorrect. UVA doesn't have an ED deadline and neither does Georgetown for that matter.

This is what I did. 3.3/171. EDing to UVA now will give you a very good chance of acceptance and it will def. put your mind at ease lol. I'm very worried that UVA will be hopeless by the time I hear back from Penn

I'm confused. You graduated at the previous college and now you are graduating again?

LSAC only counts your GPA until you graduate...the first time.
