167 / 3.7 / ED?

Postby acr » Tue Jan 07, 2014 11:21 pm

Before I get flooded with people responding telling me to retake, I want you guys to know that I will probably be sitting for the June 2014 LSAT before applying next fall. However, I feel like I prepared as well as I could for my 167, and I'm not exactly confident in my ability to earn a score with a 7 in the middle.

So in case these are my final numbers, I could use some input from you guys, especially when it comes to my ED prospects.

Should I ED at Northwestern? I realize that ED at Northwestern is a 50K/year scholarship, so would it be wasting my ED to apply here with my numbers?

What about GWU? I know that ED at George Washington also comes with a full ride, so do you think I would have a shot? Or do I have a chance at money from GWU RD?

ED somewhere else?

I'm planning on throwing out apps to GULC, Cornell, and Vandy, and if I get accepted, then I'll weigh the option of paying sticker. But I understand that I'm an outside shot at those schools.

Hopefully this all becomes academic after the June LSAT, but in case these are my final numbers I want your halp

Thanks :)

do I have a chance at money from GWU RD? Yes. Good money.

ED somewhere else? Cornell is your best bet

Thanks for the quick response. I will definitely not be applying ED to Northwestern unless my June LSAT is 170+. Any other thoughts?

A dude in my thread posted such that he was awarded ED/scholarship at NU with a 168/3.8. Not saying you shouldn't explore options re: the LSAT, but you obviously don't need a 170 to get ED.

However, I'd question whether or not ED is relevant this late in the game???

OP is applying next fall.

But there are some schools that have 2 rounds of ED to accommodate December takers. Also, GULC's ED deadline is the same as their RD deadline.

The NU data point still stands, then.

Great. OP can go to GULC, then. Such a great bargain school.

If you're insinuating that that's what I suggested OP do....no.

How much money do you guys think could I expect, if any, from WUSTL?

Last cycle I was offered $105k and then the full ride with your numbers. PM me if you want more details about my cycle.

OP, how do you figure you have an "outside chance" at Cornell? According to their website 3.73 was their 75th percentile GPA last year and a 167 LSAT was I believe their 75th percentile number as well for the incoming class. I think those numbers combined with a well-rounded application give you better than an "outside chance." Maybe I'm wrong..
