I think it's not a wise decision to ED to Duke when you could potentially ED to Columbia/NYU, or at least UVA.

Don't see a big diff b/w UVA & Duke honestly. Columbia/NYU would not be as likely to take a 3.3, especially in ED.

Um no.

Columbia might be a stretch b/c GPA, but you should ED to NYU, which is easier to get into. If you fail, then RD to UVA and Duke (+the other lower T14).

This is really stupid. Columbia and NYU have almost identical GPA/LSAT margins. Why on earth would he have a better chance at NYU.

False. NYU is more splitter forgiving scores above a 173. Look at LSN.

I'm looking at LSN and I see this http://lawschoolnumbers.com/piccolittle/jd, and no one who went ED to NYU with his #s be admitted.

Right because one counterexample proves an entire pattern wrong.

What pattern? You have no proof

I'm not talking generally, I'm talking specifically about ED. And there's not enough information for you guys to conclusively give advice on that. All I'm sayin

Look at the LSN graphs. There are many more waitlist/rejects in the >175 <3.5 category at Columbia than NYU. Also NYU is bigger, so it automatically has to have more people below their 25th percentile (because that's how percentiles work).

Also Columbia is a better school, so we like to think it's harder to get in to.

I think people generally should not listen to what you have to say.

What?

I'm assuming you have a massive NYU-inferiority complex because you go there? It's a fantastic school, and is generally on par with Columbia...but its easier to get into than Columbia. Sorry to burst your bubble.

LOL. If you like Duke more than UVA, do not ED to UVA. They are peer schools and, honestly, a lot of the recent employment data suggests Duke may be doing better. Curiouser goes strictly by the rankings. If Cooley jumped up to the T5, he would attend in a heartbeat because US News told him it was a great school.

I think he was saying in terms of biglaw placement. Though I know that may be skewed due to less biglaw firms in the south (ala Vandy).

I am saying that Duke's BigLaw placement is often times equal or better than UVA's.

Why would he ED to UVA if he likes Duke more? UVA is not really a better school. Also, he has almost no shot at NYU/Columbia with those numbers.

My post sums up who Curiouser is and his lack of knowing things beyond the number next to a school in the rankings.

Really? I thought NYU/CLS's GPA floor was about a 3.3.

And even if Duke is basically the same as UVA it still makes no sense to ED to either, because he has the numbers to RD to both. So why not ED to a school he has a slim chance of getting into RD like NYU or Columbia?

UGH because ED DOES NOT HELP SPLITTERS.

Calm down child.

And ED definitely DOES help splitters at UVA. More reason to ED there, but he doesn't need it because he can get in RD.
