I have a 178/3.6x and admittedly weak softs. However, I have not gotten anything close to a T13 for free.


Seconding this. I had substantively similar stats and got nothing even remotely close to a full ride anywhere in the T13 (back in muh day it was the T14 and we walked uphill in the snow both ways to apply).

I got into H & S and my need-based aid was way higher than any merit aid I got anywhere else.


You got into Stanford with a 3.6X ??


Yes, non-URM. This was 3 years ago though, not sure if that makes a difference.

Thirding this. You'll likely have better options but don't come into a reapply scenario expecting free T13


Thank you for clarifying this - I did get my hopes up :-((

You might! But it's not guaranteed so don't operate under that mindset. (Sources: students of mine w/your situation, personal experience, and chats w/Spivey consultants formerly)
