171 // 2.63

Postby Teflon_Jeff » Sat Jan 07, 2012 3:55 pm

I have excellent work history/letters/intangible etc, but I'm worried my GPA will sink me.

Where should I be considering? (top-X wise)

EDIT:

These are the schools I am considering. Thanks in advance for any assistance and/or advice.

NYU/Columbia (Dream, I figure <1%, but you gotta try, right?)
Cornell
Northwestern
U of Washington
Fordham
Brigham Young

With post graduation work experience, your best (and probably only) T-14 bet is Northwestern. Expect $$ at WUSTL and some other T30's, but most would tell you NU at sticker is your best option.

Thanks for the advice. How do you feel I would do at the other schools I've listed?

I'd really like to get into Cornell, any thoughts on what my chances are, and how I might improve them?

Even with a 180 Cornell may turn you away. NU is your T-14 option, imo.

Unless you found a fortune-500 or something as equally impressive, NU is the only t-14.
