Which T14 options?

Post by proudgunner » Fri Apr 17, 2020 2:49 pm

Mid T2. 3.76 GPA. One CALI. What are my chances (if any) of T14 schools?

GPA is importnat, but your class ranking even more so. I think where your school is (what region) also plays a factor. I.e. GW feeds more into Georgetown and UNC feeds more into Duke, but this could be self-selection too. I'm just gonna guess you are looking for a generic answer, and I'm going to guess you are in the top 20%- I'd say a real shot at Georgetown on down the T20. I think the lower t14 are all still in play though but much more of a reach. I think CCN on down are most likely not gonna happen but ya never know.
Best of luck

Hey, thanks for the comment! Pretty accurate analysis I am sure. I am in the top ten percent! Should have clarified in my earlier post.

Agree broadly with wafflez's analysis, particularly about regionality. I will say that Duke and UVA (plus Cornell, to a lesser extent) don't take very many transfers---although the transfers they *do* take tend to be from their immediate region. Georgetown takes over a hundred transfers annually (from all over the country), and you'd have a fighting chance there. Northwestern and NYU would be worth the app, but at least the latter is a long shot.

I recommend applying broadly, including to Michigan, both Chicago schools, Georgetown, and NYU (if you want to be in NYC, can afford the extra low-expected-chances app). More applications means better chances overall.

Absolutely. I am planning on applying to: Georgetown, Duke, UPenn, Michigain, NYU, Northwestern, and Chicago. I also need to note (not sure why I didn't just do this in the original post) that I also obtained a federal judicial clerkship for this summer.

I think I have an OK shot at Georgetown and everything else is a stretch. However, I am really anxious to see how COVID-19 alters things. I think it should work for my benefit.

Recap: 3.76, Top ten percent, CALI, federal judicial summer clerkship, Midwest, and I have lots of really good relationships with my professors. The school I go to has such an awesome faculty.

Thanks everyone for the advice!
