Help - ED to Northwestern? 3.8/169

Post by mathteacher19 » Tue Nov 05, 2019 11:51 pm

Please help the deadline is coming up...

3.80 - 169
Non-URM, Male, TFA
Submitting to all T-14s (TFA fee waivers)

Should I ED to Northwestern with their 120K scholarship? I am retaking the LSAT in 3 weeks (maybe 1 or 2 points increase?) Worried about losing the 120k if I just do regular decision and if I don't increase my score...

Northwestern's ED is generally designed to steal applicants away from HYSCCN (usually with scholarship offers there). You might still get admitted ED with your current numbers, but it's a bit of a long shot.

In your shoes, I wouldn't bother with ED. Even if your score doesn't go up, you should get decent scholarship offers in the lower T13. And if your score goes up even a point, your options only increase.
