I'm asking cuz of the retake/ low number of apps

3.88/ 169 and 171. K-JD, and brown, but not a URM.

What's worrying me is that my retake was only 2 points higher than my original score.

What are my chances of getting money at MVP or into CCN, and will the latter require an ED?

I know money at a lower T14 is the usual answer to these, but debt isn't an issue for me, and I want the best school with the best employment options that I can get with my numbers.

No need to ED, should snag CCN (at least N if not CC). You'll probably get good money at lower T-14 as well

Alright, thanks. Thing is, out of CCN, i really want Columbia. By the looks of it, i'm in WL territory. Would this be worth an ED app?

That's up to you. You are at risk of a WL From CLS, but you have a chance of getting RD as well. IF you want CLS that badly, you can ED.

http://myLSN.info/oukt65 those aren't bad RD odds, and you have a decent shot at merit aid.

I think it would be silly to apply ED to Columbia unless you wouldn't be content with Chicago or NYU, and I don't think you would be sacrificing employment options by going to either peer school.

Even if debt isn't a concern, you may as well take the cash if they're going to give it to you. Hell, if $$$ isn't a concern I'd say RD might be worth it just because you have a slim but non-zero chance at H.

At the end of the day though, as others pointed out, if moneys aren't a concern then ED is purely your call.
