Waste of $$$?

Waste of $$$?
« on: February 18, 2008, 08:20:30 PM »
After reading a few of these threads and trolled LSN, I am beginning to think that I wasted my money on application fees.  Eventhough I only have a 3.3/163, I applied to 10 top 25 schools (Duke, GULC, GW, Emory, Vanderbilt, Columbia, etc).  I am a mexican-american/female/veteran with two tours in Iraq. 

Are these "soft factors" enough to get me a big envelope?

I think with your URM status and the fact that you are a female veteran, you'll get some love from a few of those schools.

At $75 a school, they should give refunds in the rejection letters!

Thanks for the help
