175/2.98

Postby mqt » Tue Jul 02, 2013 12:38 am

Super splitter, here. Went 171 to 175 on the LSAT, and due to some issues with depression in the middle of UG, had a 2.98, though I did have a GPA in the high 3s for my last two years.

My question is if I should be EDing, or keeping my options open. I feel like I have a shot in the T14, but don't know if I have much of a realistic shot at $.

I'm not too familiar with splitter chances other than the ole enjoy NU. I just wanted to say congrats on the kick-ass increase.

2.8x and 176 here so, anecdotally, a similar but even worse splitter. Ended up at NU. From my analysis prior to applying, in the T10, Michigan, UVA, Penn, NYU, and Columbia are viable targets, in decreasing order of likelihood. If you want the best school, my advice would be ED to Penn, it seems like the sweet spot in terms of risk/reward. If you want the most $$$, my advice would be to target NU/Michigan. Others, please correct if this is poor advice.

Michigan is not friendly to splitters. They have a pretty solid 3.3 GPA floor.

Target UVa, GULC, and NU and milk them for as much money as you can. Don't ED to any of them though, you'll have a good shot at all of them via RD.

I'm a 2.81/176 and I was accepted at all 3. You can look at my cycle in my profile or at ~whimsical on LSN. Your cycle should be better than mine if you play your cards right, because there are fewer applicants these days. Also, I didn't even file a FAFSA or Need Access for GULC, so I basically gave up any hope of a scholarship. If I could go back, I would have filled that shit out and maybe gotten something I could have used to bargain with NU.
