If you look at law school numbers, some ED applicants were complete around 11/23 or so and were still considered for ED. You may want to contact them, but I would think that you are safe.

Law School Admissions / Will Chicago ED help?
« on: November 24, 2004, 06:48:40 PM »
I have already applied to U. of Chicago, but am considering switching from RD to ED. I've heard conflicting stories as to whether ED helps (especially with my stats, 3.62 169, being on the low-ish end). Chicago is my #1 choice, but I'm hesitant to commit without knowing financial aid info. Any comments are appreciated.

Seattle U is an excellent school. Sure, it probably gets overshadowed by UW to some extent, but it's definitely on the rise.

For what it's worth, I have a buddy that's a 3L at Seattle U. He's in the top 1/3 of his class or so and landed a $110K job in Seattle (which is impressive, considering how poor the legal market in Seattle is). He had no trouble getting offers for summer employment. I think he had 10+ interviews. I've heard that many Seattle firms prefer hiring local folks, specifically Seattle U and UW, over people from higher-ranked schools on the east coast.

I think Seattle U might be more of a reach; your stats are a bit low for them. They have become much tighter in recent years. Other than that, the list looks pretty good.

Choosing the Right Law School / 3.62/169 Chances?
« on: November 16, 2004, 03:11:25 PM »
I am new to this board and would like any opinions on schools I am planning on applying to. Stats are 3.62 169, non-URM. I graduated top 5% from a large state school, have 1 year of work experience and a couple of government internships during school. I am applying/planning to apply to the following:

Harvard (just for kicks)
Columbia (fee waiver)
Michigan (fee waiver)
USC (fee waiver)
University of Washington (in-state, as my safety)

I have already applied to U of Chicago (late Oct) and am considering changing my application to ED to help my chances. Will this help me at all? Any other opinions on my chances are appreciated.
