175 LSAT/3.39 GPA- chances at T14s

Postby westinghouse60 » Mon Oct 24, 2011 6:50 pm

Yeah I know there's going to be a huge rush to this section with the Oct scores coming out but this is (relatively) urgent. I did way better than I thought I would on my October test (was aiming for 170-171 then ED to one of MVP + Cornell and a few safeties) but ended up with a 175, so I'm having to rethink my options quickly.

3.39 LSAC GPA, double major in Poli Sci/Econ from an average state school (w/ very strong upward grade trend).
2 LORs that I'm guessing are strongish
Not much work experience/softs other than unpaid internships in DA's office/Bankruptcy law office, minor volunteer work/clubs but nothing impressive.

Chances at:

Columbia
Chicago
NYU
Penn
Michigan
Virginia
Cornell
Vanderbilt

Goal is big law; I figured I'd have to ED to one of MVP w/ no $$$ to have a shot at a t-14, but the 175 opens some options up I didn't think I'd have. Really it boils down to what are my chances at CCN with ED vs MVP regular decision + Cornell/Vanderbilt with the possibility of $$?

I know about LSP and LSN and I'm going to look at them plenty, there's just a limited amount of info on there about ED decisions, etc., so I really wanted to get some real world input. (And I know I'll have to bump this for replies, oh well.)

Apply to all the T14 - HYS. Think about applying ED to your favorite of CCN instead of MVP.
