If you don't get it this year, I'd ED to UPenn next year and I'd be very surprised if you didn't get it. I think it's kind of silly to do that when you could get NYU, but each to their own. Living somewhere you don't love for 3 years for better job prospects seems like a good trade to me. It's not as if you're deciding between two wildly different places like Texas and NYC.


I can't possibly imagine the kind of twisted soul who prefers Philadelphia to New York City.


Yea yea yea. Nyc is too exhausting for me, I can't imagine living there and going to law school. Also expensive/cramped

Are the job prospects that much better at NYU than Penn? Seems pretty equal to me on Law School Transparency

I would apply ED to Northwestern first, once they defer you to regular decision I would send the ED to Penn. If you get NW thats a free ride in Chicago, which I would take over Uchicago anyways

The Penn ED deadline comes before Northwestern makes it's ED decisions.

As someone that got into 2 T10's with lower LSATs and around your GPA, it's certainly possible even without ED, though you need good WE, recs, softs, and a good PS (but that's true no matter what)

Similar stats as you and I'm in a similar position you're in right now (didn't ED anywhere, although I don't have as strong of personal preferences as to where I go). You'll can almost certainly get into Penn with ED, and although I've yet to hear back from most places, I'm sort of regretting not doing it.
