The best statistical tool I've seen for this puts you at about 1 in 5 chance for C and a coin flip for NYU. https://jscalc.io/calc/zt21YwP4hMpgFuoT

In at NYU, in at Columbia if you ED (too late I would think). Probably no $ at either.

Isn’t that kinda brutal? I’m at NYUs median LSAT and almost at their 75th for GPA

Thank you! It’s too late. I can’t decide if it’s worth delaying a cycle to ED to Columbia if I get dinged

Seems like it. MyLSN shows out at Columbia and in at NYU. http://myLSN.info/x799l5_1-13.jpg

Thanks :) that same info led me to conclude I had a reasonably good chance at NYU

in at NYU, probably out at Columbia, but you'll be paying sticker at both. you'll get big money from the other T13s.

It would be much smarter to apply RD and apply to most of the lower T14. $$$ at MVPD is almost always a better option than Columbia at sticker.

I really really want to live in New York and Columbia has always been my dream school. Also it’s considered a better school than NYU so I guess that I feel that I could justify Columbia at sticker vs NYU at sticker. But yeah honestly if I got into NYU I would probably just go


Given the differences in scholarship money you'll probably see, you could take lavish monthly trips to NYC and still come out ahead (not that you should do that necessarily).

Getting scholarship offers from the lower T13 schools will be so painful if NYU really gives me nothing. Is it impossible to use say a hefty scholarship at Mich to negotiate with them?

OP could see some money at NYU, but his best option will likely be something between 120 and 150k further down the t13

but do you have to be in NYC for law school? it's not like you'll have a ton of time to take advantage of the city anyway. if you go to a lower T13 with $$$, you can still spend your summers in NYC and definitely get a firm job there after graduation (while saving $200,000)

In addition to what was already said about not getting hung up on the idea of going to school in a particular location for three years, don't get hung up on a minor difference in a ranking system. NYU and Columbia are peer schools. Picking one over the other for any reason that doesn't involve money is a bad decision.

And as mentioned repeatedly on this thread, you're going to be much better off taking a bigger scholarship at a lower T13, which will get you to NYC for your career just as easily as Columbia or NYU will.

If you want generic NYC Biglaw just go to the cheapest of UVA/Michigan/Duke/Cornell. As others have said you'll get to spend your summers in NYC while saving a boatload of money for the same/very similar outcome that you would get at Columbia/NYU.
