Sorry, not LSP. Meant the one that the LSAC puts out.


Both LSP and LSAC can be inaccurate with splitters. Using LSN and hourumd (though the latter is growing less and less useful since it hasn't been updated) are the best ways to gauge chances.

She doesn't have a good shot at Chicago. This year a 3.4X 174 EDer got WL. OP if you want to ED UVA is probably your best bet...plus you could still ED NU after finding out from UVA.


NU has a strange ED policy. If you want to ED NU at any time of the cycle do it first or don't do it at all. OP will probably swing NU regular decision anyway.

OP will get into NU regular decision. I'd say he's probably in at 2/3 of MVP.

As others are saying, if you really want to be in NYC, ED to NYU. You have an outside shot, but if you could retake to 175, I'd like your chances a lot better. Might not be terrible to go to school somewhere other than NYC anyway. Odds are you'll end up back there anyway if you perform solidly in school.

I'd ED UChi or NYU because you will have a pretty good shot at one of MVPN without ED and could always ED UVA late in the cycle.

As far as retaking, you're not going to HYS, and almost every other school takes top score. It probably won't hurt you to try again with hopes of 175 and opening the door to CCN

Look at these cycles - moral of story, apply EARLY. If you want, you can ED Chicago, NYU or Penn, (with Penn most likely to bite). Michigan as well.

Good luck.

I hear Michigan is not too friendly to ED applicants. Either way, if you apply to Mich, don't forget to write a Why Mich!

Dont understand what you mean by they are not friendly to ED applicants. If anything, they're the only school that offers ED admits substantial scholarship money.

I wasn't an ED applicant to Mich, but there was a part of the Michigan 2011 thread in which people extensively discussed the difficulty of getting into Michigan through ED. Supposedly, tons of people were rolled over to RD. That's the only basis for the comment I made, though.

Oh I see. Didnt know that. In any case, OP - yes, write a Why Mich. Write Why essays everywhere you can.

I appreciate what you're saying and law school is such a big decision that I don't want to let geography play too much of a role in it, but it's not just personal preference: I have a fiance in NYC. Otherwise, I would 100% be on board with wherever. And to whoever suggested Cornell....it might actually be more convenient to be in Chicago, where at least there's an airport. Ithaca is convenient to nothing. Georgetown will probably end up being my most likely option in terms of weighing geography needs vs. school ranking vs. my chance of actually getting in.

I appreciate everybody's input and honesty. I will probably end up applying early to UPenn or NYU, throwing an app at columbia and Uchi, and applying to UVA, GULC, NU, Fordham, UCLA, Michigan. Anything else obvious I'm missing? I also have strong personal and professional ties to a number of the top Big law firms in NYC -- strong enough that I suspect with good grades I could get a few interviews even if I don't attend YHSCCN, so I'm less concerned on that front.

I'm contemplating the June exam, but I really did study my ass off for the last exam and I'm honestly not even sure what practice tests I would take or what I would study from, having worked my way through all the testmasters material.
