Help me out please 3.34/170

Postby BrianOz1 » Mon Feb 07, 2011 6:19 pm

Ok I have been late getting my applications together what would your course of action be?

I am currently thinking of applying to BC, BU, UVA (fee waiver),William and Mary (fee waiver) GULC, GW and George Mason. They all have March 1 application deadlines and are in areas in which I am interested in living in and practicing. Should I continue to apply this cycle and see what kind of offers I receive or would I be best served by trying to submit some ED application (Michigan, UVA, GULC) next cycle?

-Thanks

Thanks for the response. Thats what I figured most were going to say. Just hard to put your life on hold for another year, even when you realize its probably for the best. What do you think my chances of ED are at the aforementioned schools and possibly NU?

i got rejected from uva ed with same lsat and basically a better gpa (I don't have one, i'm foreign) I think a lot of this had to do with them over admitting last year. if you look at some of the uva threads you'll see quite a few tlser's who took big scholarships to defer to this fall. I'd say wait until next year and triple dip your EDing (UVa gets back to you in 2 weeks and i think you can ed there in like august, then ED somewhere else by Nov 15th and if that doesn't pan out then ED Gtown until march 15th)

It just sucks that I graduated with a 3.5 and LSAC decided to make it a 3.34. There is a massive upward trend. I hope that helps some.

Yea this does seem like the best option. I don't want to have to "what if?" for the rest of my life.

the other thing to consider is that there are a lot less applicants this year than before and so a lot less 170s to go around. i'd like to think this means that the lower t14 are going to be fighting over us. i haven't applied to bc or bu yet but i feel pretty good about getting some scholarship money, maybe i'm too optimistic. i just think UVa's a bummer because of their over enrollment last year (wishful thinking maybe)
