I'm currently looking at a 3.55 and 171 while studying at a top 15 undergrad. My undergrad experience was pretty much all over the place; I started as a premed, decided I wanted to do math, found myself less than competent at the subject and finally settled with economics/statistics. Tbh, I feel that the lack of focus really hurt my chances at a decent grade, but my GPA is pretty set as of now although it might go up or down one or two decimals.

So what are your thoughts on my chances of getting into a T14 (and which ones should I target)?
Also, do you think retaking is worth the trouble here? I've been PTing from high 160s to mid 170s.

Thanks a lot, and happy holidays!


ED to UVA or U of Mich assuming you are applying next cycle.

You can retake if you think you can devote significant time to studying, as I don't think you'll do much worse and even if you do it won't hurt all that much. If you manage to get into mid/high range Top 6 might not be out of the question.

No need to ED. Apply broadly see what happens.

You're competitive at the bottom half of the T14. Retake if you want a better shot at CCN (though NYU might choose to average, and you'll need a 175+ to have a shot at columbia.)

I've been lurking lsn and quite a few of the applicants with similar numbers have been EDing UVA or Penn and getting in.
Are you guys more of less confident that I could do better without EDing, assuming no retake?

MVP isn't too predictable, no matter what your stats are. You have a shot at money from either UVA or michigan (though there is also a decent shot you will strike out at MVP and only get something like GULC or Cornell though). Prob. not that much of a shot at Penn unless you ED though.

Play around with hourumd to get an idea for what i mean:

Also I don't think I've ever seen "171" and "help" in the same sentence before.

3.63, 171 here.

I've yet to crack the top 14, but I also only have two decisions so far. Priority reserve at Duke. ED'd to Michigan and was deferred to the regular admission pool. Considering EDing to UVA, but Texas gave me a great scholarship offer and I'd like to hear from Cornell/Georgetown before making that decision.

I'm probably not the best applicant, though. I have mediocre softs and a disciplinary probation at my school, but I was told my PS was very good.

If you want to get into the best school you can and dont mind paying, apply ed to chicago. youd have a good shot, or mvp with a tiny bit better shot.

Otherwise apply all over, you could get large scholleys from vandy or wustl if you wanted, or a full ride in the twenties. It may be worth it to have the choice between a few t14s at sticker and one of these cheaper.

I would not ed until visiting and really deciding that the school is where you want to be period.
