Blanket selections at t14. Pick some t30's for safeties. Go.

When do I send apps? IS it for sure not worth it to firs try ED at some schools since I can send apps at the first day possible? Why not ED Harvard (fail) Ed Yale (fail) Ed (Stanford (fail) then blanket the rest?

YHS dont have ED...

My recommendation ED to favorite of CCN (hope for the best), blanket the rest of T14. outside T14 is unnecessary IMO. Apply REAL early for them all and build up your Karma (i.e. volunteer for the homeless).

You can only ED to one school at a time. They all have different (though usually common) deadlines. Some schools don't offer ED. It's unlikely that you'll hear from three schools before the ED deadline for most. You should maybe do some basic research and then come back with any lingering questions you may have.

Only ED to Columbia or NYU if they are your first choice law schools & you are willing to attend without merit scholarship money. Otherwise you are a very strong candidate for admission to Penn, Michigan, Berkeley, Virginia, Duke & Northwestern among many others.

Don't even apply below t17 unless you're looking for serious $. There's no way any school below the t14 rejects you unless it's YP.
