169 / 3.68

Postby guitarist27 » Thu Aug 11, 2011 10:53 pm

I've posted a general one here before but this one is more specific. Unique softs but nothing spectacular. Without retaking, would 169 3.68 be enough for Georgetown or Cornell. If not, should I consider an ED anywhere to help my T14 chances? Any responses appreciated.

Cornell is a lock, I'd bet, but perhaps without $$$. GULC is up in the air...I had almost identical numbers as you, applied in January, and got WL'd, so you may have a shot.

Anyway, you can look at my LSN profile if you want to see how I did. :) I had a weird cycle, though, TBF.

I think Cornell will be good with an early application. Georgetown is a tossup. You're barely below their LSAT median (1 point), and you're barely above their GPA median. So long as their GPA median didn't bounce up this past cycle, I think you have a decent chance. If it did, there's really no telling.

Moral of the story: apply early.

Lol, this is the moral of many stories.

So everyone is in agreement that ED at Georgetown would not be a good idea?

I think ED to GULC might give you a pretty decent chance, but do you really want GULC that bad? I mean, it's a good school (better than most on here give it credit for being), but the class sizes are HUGE and it dumps you out into a supersaturated market when you graduate.

I realize this site perpetuates the idea of T14 or bust, but T20 and T25 schools are good, too, and you can still have a satisfying and successful career at them/outside the T14. Just make sure it's what YOU want, not what people on this site say you should want.
