I think UVA has a soft gpa floor at 3.0. I'd assume you will be out. Same with Gtown. If you have work experience NU would be your best bet.

It's too late for Michigan ED (their completion deadline is today), and UVA ED is a no-go with that GPA.

ED Mich (closes today!) first, if rejected/held/WL'd then ED UVA, if rejected/held/WL'd then get 1 year WE and ED to NU next September 15 (or whatever their first day taking apps is).

This order maximizes your number of apps (you miss Mich if you don't ED now, while UVA can be done later) and also orders logically (Mich more likely to accept than UVA so definitely hit them; if they both reject, NU should accept with 1 year WE but not this year).

Suggestions?

WUSTL, Illinois, Minnesota, and GW are your best bets. Hard to predict chances, but each of these schools take many sub-3.0s a year.

Today's the Mich ED completion deadline (they highly recommend submitting 2 weeks ago to allow time for the LSAC report), and their office closes for the day in about 2 hours. Still worth a shot to check with them, I suppose.

This potentially sucks for OP, who should be grabbing the phone and calling Mich adcomms while filling out the LSAC online app right now. Possibly a missed opportunity.

Still I suspect OP's best shot at T14 is wait a year and ED to NU anyway. Mich is a Hail Mary and UVA is a shot in the dark at this point.

No shot at Mich. Very tiny at UVA, but zero.

Nobody has tested out Northwestern ED without W/E. You might as well try it out. If I recall you have til Dec 1 to go complete. You'll get your answer in about a month.

Otherwise enjoy Minnesota with 16K/year.

NU ED requires on-campus interview to be completed by today.

my experience with NU admin says if you call and ask to switch to ED and make up your interview you have some chance of getting them to bend the rules.
