Thanks. Do you think this is a lock? Any shot at Northwestern RD?

Michigan ED? If it helps to know, I have a very strong LOR from a Mich Law alum.

I would ED Virginia first, because they will let you know whether you were accepted or not, within two weeks of sending your application in. Then if that doesn't work out ED Michigan!

NW is unlikely. GPA too low.

For NW? No way!!! They take people as low as 2.6. They took decent amount of people with GPA around 2.7.-2.8-2.9, below 3.0.

Thanks all. I thought NU was cool with a low GPA so long as the LSAT was 170+. No shot at NU? It would be RD bc of their generous ED scholarship...

Most of those people had high-170's.

No you are right! They are very LOW-GPA friendly.

Thanks so far everyone.

NU is prob my top choice...should I risk RDing there and EDing somewhere else (though it's my top choice, I'd be really happy going to UVA or Mich).

What do ya'll think? ED UVA, if out, ED UMich or GULC??

I wouldn't ED NW you would just be sent to RD and would just be waiting while you miss out on ED options other places. ED gets a full ride from what I understand at NW so they aren't using their ED pool to dip down bellow their medians.

I would send them an app. If your 3 years of WE is solid they like that. I wouldn't bet on getting in. The truth is ED virginia or Georgetown is your best bet to lock in T14. I would send one to Michigan as well. Be sure to get a couple of back up schools in the T25 though just incase you don't get a bite.
