Unless you are URM, you will be rejected at both.

You almost certainly aren't getting into UPenn with those numbers, and most certainly not NYU. Sorry, dude.

ED won't help since you're well below both medians. You won't get a T14 school with those numbers. Need to retake or set your sights a little lower.

Your focus should be on schools in the 15-30 range, perhaps with schools like Cornell, Georgetown, Northwestern, etc. as reaches.

Does the Mexican URM boost really not give me a shot at these?

Understood MA to be masters. This changes things.

Oh, you hadn't said that you are Mexican. Yes, that will provide you with a significant boost, and you would likely get into Penn, though NYU is still iffy, but worth a try.

I feel so bad now, lol.

Penn is a good target school for you. NYU will be tough given the GPA (URM boosts are generally for LSAT points). I think you'll get at least 3 schools from 7-14. Probably Michigan, Penn, Georgetown, and possibly Cornell.

Exactly my plan. I'm also a mexiCAN and I'll be throwing apps at schools I have no business throwing apps at lol. I have similar numbers btw.

167 MA splitter here too. I'll be applying #4 down. Received some fee waivers so it can't hurt. Good luck guys.
