URM (black) female

Postby ThatOneGirlinMO » Sat Jan 22, 2011 1:50 am

Chicago
Wustl
Cornell
Duke
Penn
Virginia
Michigan
Northwestern
USC
Vanderbilt
Notre Dame
UIllinois
Indiana-Bloomington
Iowa
Minnesota
Wisconsin
Maryland
Mizzou
KU
UMKC
SLU
Chicago-Kent
Depaul

I've applied to all of these schools, but now I'm feeling like I didn't diversify my options enough. The vast majority of these schools sent me fee waivers (I know that it doesn't make a difference). Do you think I have a shot at an acceptance and scholarship money?

Other info: PT work experience for three years, heavily involved on campus (leader in four orgs, involved in 5 more, and on student councils), volunteer work, lower-class, and from a rural area. I need some insight!

No way that you'll get in everywhere except Chicago. I would bet that you'll get maybe one T-14 if you're lucky.

So if T-14 is out (if dude isn't flaming me), then what about WUSTL and below?

If you end up shut out of the T-14, it will ONLY be b/c you did not package your application effectively or b/c you applied too late.


Good luck.

Thank you! I'm not one to follow forums, but I started to doubt myself, so I came here. I really appreciate the insight.

As far as the T14 is concerned, your best shot is Northwestern, Duke and Cornell.

Too late for Chicago, Penn, Michigan and UVA.
