Top 5 undergrad.
Top graduate school with PhD in techonology field.
Taken multiple classes at a top law school and received top grades and recommendations from law school professors.

Strong softs in public service and leadership.
Diversity essay.

I have specific schools I am most interested in but don't want to prejudice answers too much. Chances for all T14?


I don't know much, but you sound like the ideal candidate for scholarships at NU. Splitter, strong softs, unique work experience and credentials for jobs. I would strongly consider EDing there next cycle.

grades??

You have some chance at lower t14s, but you wont be getting into any with much scholarship. Maybe Cornell will give you some money. I second the advice about EDing NW.

I think you're being overly pessimistic about scholarship from lower t14s. A 171 will also get some money from NU regardless of ED, but OP should. And same with Georgetown and Duke

Yeah I mean GT Cornell might be offering 10-15k a year for him, but I can't see Duke/Michigan/UVA giving him 20k+ a year. Speaking as a splitter with a phd myself. His GPA is still pretty low and splitters are getting less money than they did a few years ago during my cycle. If that trend continues, I think next cycle a splitter like OP will get some small offers, but not much more than probably 15k a year (unless he snags NW ED).

The last couple years LSATs have fallen a lot at the lower T14s. I looked it up on the graphs, ppl with similar numbers were getting $25k a year from NU, Duke, and Cornell and even more from GT.

Edit: Actually a little less from GT, more like $20k
