Yea. Have to agree with that one. MrAnon consistently gives laughably bad and overly cynical advice. He must be pretty butthurt re: grades, jerbs, or both.

If you wanna stay in NC, I think you have a good shot obviously at Wake and UNC with your LSAT

LSAT>>>GPA


UNC's pretty anal about GPA...might get off a waitlist if he gets WLed, but probably straight up rejected. In at Wake Forest with a scholarship though. Also, I thought ED to Northwestern was no longer splitter friendly due to the full ride attached to it?

I'm pretty sure this is still the credited advice.

Yeah all of the splitters here were held from ED, but iirc all of the ones that ED'd (crumps, Samara, and some others) got in RD from the hold instead of getting WL'd.

I'm pretty sure an ED splitter would probably be switched to RD with the new scholarship, but it still probably gives a boost in the RD process.
