Thanks for the feedback about Fordham, Miss P.
I am starting to fall in love with this board, and especially this thread...hah.
I just have a couple more topics for discussion to throw out there:
1) I keep hearing about WashU being very splitter friendly, and their data seems to back that up. What about other Tier 1's? Something tells me this has been addressed elsewhere, so if it has, just tell me to stop being lazy...no need to flame...haha.
2) This is more of a plea for advice. My GPA when I apply to schools this fall will be low, probably in the 2.8ish area. I can wait until December when I graduate and my GPA will be a little higher, probably around 3.0. Would the advantage of applying early be completely outweighed by the sub-3.0 GPA, or would I still be better off applying early? My grade trend is very steep (upward) in the past 2 years, and I plan to point that out in an addendum. Is it unreasonable for me to expect the schools to at least consider that my GPA will be higher than what is being reported to them, or might it work out? Any thoughts?
