170/3.3...where should I aim?

Postby Cornelius » Mon Oct 24, 2011 9:00 pm

Well, the October retake went better (170 from a 167) but not as great as I'd expected. I'm trying to figure out what schools I should be targeting. Average softs, out of school for 3-4 years with full-time work experience.

I see someone got into Penn ED last year with similar stats. Worth a shot?

Worth sending applications to Northwestern or UVA with a 170 (damn that 1 extra point I couldn't get!)? In/Out?

Reasonable list?
Cornell
WUSTL
IUB
Illinois
William & Mary
Iowa
Emory
Fordham
Washington & Lee
Ohio State
Wake Forest
Cardozo
Temple/Villanova

Congrats on the great score.

Yeah, bummer about the 170; a 171 would make you safe for UVA. Right now, your stats are a little precarious for V/P/N. But you do have a good list of matches and safeties, so you should have a good cycle.

Any other thoughts?
