Your chances are ok-to-not-so-great at UVA/Mich. They are worse at NYU, and no one should ED to NYU.

And I know you're not retaking, but if your goal school is CCN, then you need to retake. Otherwise, have fun ignoring advice to shoot yourself in the foot.

Thanks, why should nobody ED to NYU? Because of that powerscore article?

Because it does not increase your chances at admission (at least not enough to make up for your LSAT), and because it practically guarantees that you will not receive any scholarship money. You should only apply ED to a school that guarantees a full ride (or something close to it).

I actually think you are more in the ok than not so great range for UVA/Mich. Probably not NYU. Listen to cavalier about not EDing where there isn't guaranteed $. Also, I know you say not retaking, but literally two more points and you're probably getting some decent money to UVA/Michigan.

After playing around with the Mylsn.info, I agree with the above. Retake the LSAT. It is a lot easier to study for the LSAT and score higher, attend a good school with a scholarship, then to find a high paying job and pay back tons of debt from a lesser ranked school.

Good luck with whatever you decide though! Your GPA is good and I'd hate for you to throw it away.

I think you have a shot at UVA and Mich. However, I am not sure you will get much money with that score. I think NYU is a long shot. EDing at NYU would be a disastrous move. COA is insane for NYU/living in NYC and if you play around on LSN, you will see that EDing typically reduces your chances at NYU (unless you are 175+).

I'm not going to apply ED to NYU and will hope for the best with the other schools. I think maybe Cornell would give me some money. Do you think Penn is a waste of an app with my stats?


Not a waste, but similar to NYU if you get in you will pay sticker. I do think you can get into Cornell and maybe some money. Even if you can't retake the LSAT right now you should do so before starting. Sometimes schools will increase their scholarship award in June/July if there is extra money.

Like I said earlier, a couple points could literally be worth tens of thousands of dollars in scholarship money. It may not seem real now, but if you don't have to pay $2,000 a month in loans you will be really happy.
