3.44/177 Applying in Feb [Penn/NYU/Columbia]

Postby believe77 » Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:03 am

HELLOOO everyone! This will be my first post on TLS! :D

I was wondering what you guys thought my chances are for Penn, NYU, and Columbia if I apply in the next few days. I have just average softs and am not a URM.

In at NYU, decent chance at Penn (will probably get YPed initially), moderate chance at Columbia.

You're obviously be applying very late in the cycle, which is normally a bad thing, but this cycle is very different from others, given the large decline in total applicants and the disproportionate decline in high-LSAT applicants. Your chances are much better now than they would have been three years ago, but no one can do anything but guess to what extent applying this late will damage your chances.

Normally, you would be looking at a roughly equal shot of getting into CLS outright or ending up on the WL (and possibly getting in later). You would be a virtual lock for NYU. Penn would probably WL you for yield protection purposes; you'll need to write a very convincing "Why Penn?" statement to avoid the WL.

These are the results you could expect from applying in early December. Like I said, no one can say for certain what effect applying in mid-February app will have this cycle.
