169/3.55 - Want to work in Chicago.

2 years WE. Decent softs. What should I do? Any chance at ED to NW? Looking at maybe Michigan (any chance?) Notre Dame?

Gahhhh

I think you definitely have a chance at Michigan - also, ask Dean Ray how much $$ she will give you!

ED NU is out without 3.6+/172+ or so. But Michigan is possible.

Thanks guys. Any other opinions? Should I ED to NW or Mich? NW is definitely my dream school

Good shot at Michigan or Notre Dame. Might be a little too low for Northwestern with that LSAT, though worth a shot, just not ED.

What is the harm in ED for NW? Wouldn't I just get rolled over to regular decision if not accepted ED?

If you're absolutely set on NU then I guess it could help. You won't get in ED but it might make you more likely to get accepted RD with them knowing that you originally applied ED. But that's just speculation on my part.

Yeah, although unless the Northwestern ED contract changed you can't ED anywhere else. I guess if you're dead-set on NU that won't be a problem for you, though.
