Thats where it gets tricky, I have yet to look into this. I've been self employed for 2 years in marketing and have done well. I've also served on the board of directors of a 501(c)3 charity (and registered historical landmark) for 3 years. I'm not sure how being high up in a charity, or being self employed are viewed.

As long as you've been having some responsibilities in those positions then it should count

Isn't this a little crazy with the 2.87? I'd hate the waste the critical splitter ED boost on a long shot like a full ride to NU! I don't think I stand a chance.

Yeah I don't know what the data is on how it worked out last year, but I would imagine the GPA is too low as well. The whole point of binding ED for full scholly is to peel away people that would have shots at higher places like CCNHYS.

NU'd be able to count you as having WE, that's most of what they care about. I think your chances at NU are good. (Although probably not the ED scholly.)

You should mess around heavily with super-splitters from last cycle on LSN and see what the risks are that you get shut out of T-14. ED UVA should get you in, unless they have some kind of floor I don't know about. I like your chances at the other schools you mentioned, too.

I'm not sure, as someone with decent WE, that you would be hurting yourself employment-wise as much as the stats seem to indicate by going to UVA as opposed to NU. Don't sweat the higher rank; it's meaningless.

Eh, check NU's ED policy. I think I remember them being pretty squiffy about ONLY wanting people to ED with them, and not even to ED somewhere else after getting rolled to RD.

That'd be kind of crazy, once they ding me, their policies should go out the window! I might just day one ED UVA, apply across the lower T14, Fordham, some safety schools, and just hope something bites. If I did get into UVA and NU theres worse things then being obligated to attend a T7 with a 2.8 lol

If admitted through the Early Decision program, you must commit to matriculating at Northwestern and submit a nonrefundable $750 seat deposit by the date indicated on your letter of admission. You also must withdraw all of your applications to other schools and refrain from initiating any new applications if and when you are notified of your acceptance through the Early Decision program. You may not be an Early Decision candidate at more than one law school.

So sounds like after you get an ED rejection, you're a RD candidate right? so then being an ED candidate at another law school would be fine then

Yeah, I remember people debating this before. Are you still an ED candidate after they've rolled you? I certainly wouldn't think so, but...Northwestern Difference. :P Who knows what's in their heads sometimes.

Pretty sure the ED contract would be void if they roll you into RD but the contract might try and bind you even still. But goodluck enforcing that

They can reject you for whatever reason they want...pissing them off over a contract you think is dumb is not going to endear you to them.

I ED'd UVA got WL'd and then ED'd NU and got in. No big deal. Their policy is a little ambiguous, but they clearly mean they don't want you do be concurrently ED'd at multiple schools.

But shit is easier these days. I'd just apply to all the lower T14 and see what shakes out.

My cycle may be relevant to you. Pretty far from over, but once the dust settles should give you an idea. NU sounds like the obvious choice IMO though, unless you'd prefer UVA.

Cornell has a pretty hard floor at 3.3. They dip a little rarely, but I don't think they will take 2.87.
