URM 2.95 164

Hi Everyone,

Mexican URM with double major (one in science) which killed my GPA. 5 Years work experience. Any suggestions on reach schools?

Thanks and good luck!!

:) Thank you! Any of the top 20 more friendly towards URMs or splitters? Hoping the decrease in apps this year might make my chances a little better!

I don't think Cornell or Georgetown are "super" reaches as a URM with a 164...go for both!! :D

Thanks! This makes it easier to select those as my reach schools, before these posts all top 20 seemed impossible!!

Here's hoping!!

This. I have a 163, and I got fee waivers from Columbia on down. Only about half were solicited.

There are a few users here who got into Northwestern with good WE despite low GPA. I think Desert Fox was 2.8/175 or so.

There isn't much data but people get waitlisted as high as Columbia. I'd blanket CCN and below. You'll get 1 T14 to bite this cycle. If not, I think one of USC/UCLA or Vanderbilt will be interested.

Good luck!
