Wow, thanks Nick.  That list is encouraging.

It's nice to know that all hope is not lost.

Thanks archival.

There are definitely some schools on my list that I won't be worried about applying to early, because I'll probably get in without much thought on their part.  Those Top 20s that I really love just present such a dilemma for me.  After my summer classes finish up I'll have a better idea from LSAC of what my GPA will be for fall apps.  We'll just take it one day at a time...

I swear, I wish I had scored like 8 points lower on my LSAT, because now that I stand a chance at some schools, I'm stressed, whereas if I knew I had fewer options, it'd be an easier decision.  Hopefully it will all be worth it in the end.

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?

Hey guys, I'm new to the board, but I'm definitely a splitter.... 173/3.0ish with most bad grades coming from a T20 National University in my freshman and sophomore years and most good ones (like a 3.8 average) coming from a less prominent public when I finally found my work ethic and ambition in the past 2 years.

I'm really looking hard at schools like Fordham, ND, and Vandy.  What do you guys think?
