3.67 / 169

Postby guitarist24 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 9:40 pm

Hey thanks to anyone who responds. I can read LSN so I'm just asking about certain ones that I'm unsure of or I should ED. 1 year out of undergrad, philosophy/classics major, maybe slightly above average softs but probably nothing that makes me stick out too much. Living in Chicago. Alpha order:

(1) Cornell
(2) Chicago (even worth a shot? lol)
(3) Georgetown (ED?)
(4) Northwestern
(5) Notre Dame
(6) UCLA
(7) UVA (ED?)
(8) Vandy

thanks for any ideas.

If I can get into either Northwestern or Chicago I want to stay lol, but I know those are both stretches so I'm prepared to leave.

You should be okay for Cornell, but if I were you, I'd write a Why X essay.

I will. Would you recommend ED-ing anywhere like GULC or UVA or would it probably not help much?

You should retake the LSAT to try for NU or UChi. You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

Probably the only T14's you have a shot at are Cornell and UMich (if you ED with a 169, do it to UMich), but check http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com to be sure.

ED would help at GULC, but then you'd have to pay sticker at GULC. You could do that, or you could cut yourself until you can't feel feelings.

ED to UVA probably wouldn't work, because you're below both medians. Unless you are a resident, doesn't sound like you are.

Since you want Chicago and are probably from there, ED to Northwestern if you have work experience. Otherwise I would ED to Michigan or UChicago if you want to throw the hail mary.

Or enjoy money at Vandy or ND or gobbles of cash from UIUC / IUB / WUSTL / UMN.

UVa's ED has a 15 day turnaround and its contractual language doesn't restrict you from EDing to another school (should you be rejected), but looking at LSN, it shows that you don't have a great shot.

Northwestern's ED contract can only be submitted if you don't ED to any other school during the entire cycle...so if you were thinking about UVa ED and then NU ED should you be turned down at Virginia, that wouldn't fly.

Yeah...I agree on NU if you have work experience & Michigan if not. Chicago is not worth wasting the ED, however.

You guys are being way too generous with NU/UVa/GULC, imo. I sincerely doubt an ED to any T14 other than UMich would be worthwhile for someone with a 3.67/169.

Really? No one has actually recommended UVa/GULC thus far.

I was just skimming the thread so I didn't read it right. But there was some implicit recommendation of NU and GULC.

Chicago is only worth the ED if you would to prefer to RD other schools to keep your options open. For instance, For someone who wants Chicago a full ride to UIUC could be better than Michigan.

i got into uchicago ED with 169/3.84. I had a strong upward grade trend, but you're not that far off from my GPA. if you can put together a good PS and good recs, then it might be worth a shot, since uchicago >>> all your other options (unless you're really considering going for money somewhere, but i'd still suggest going for uchicago ED if you want chicago)

I'm a little more skeptical about his chances, your GPA is quite a bit higher than OPs. But yes, UChicago would be best far and away.

Would an ED to Chicago be a total waste for me too? I'm at 168, 3.81 (above GPA median, below LSAT median).

Wait to see what class of 2014's medians are, should be released in September on their website. I think they may have driven them up quite a bit with all the extra scholarship money they flung around last cycle.
