thanks for the insight A. I'm wondering, you seem like something of a guru on this stuff, on this website at least. Are you making these predictions just based on information you've seen over and over on the internet, or have you worked in admissions, or...?
With regard to black splitter applicants, I wonder if they're just as friendly. Columbia was my dream school and I had similar numbers to the OP with the question (thought slightly higher and fairly good soft factors) and was waitlisted. I mean, it ended up OK in the end because I'm at HLS, but I was ridiculously bummed and wondered if it was due to the GPA.
2.76, 176, Black Male. Hey all,I don't have a chance at Yale or Stanford and pretty sure Harvard is out of the question as well but what about the other T14 schools?I'd really like to go to Columbia but obviously would be open to NYU, Northwestern, Chicago, UPENN or Georgetown. Any advice you guys could offer would be great.A little background: I attended a NESCAC school, am actively involved in a couple of non-profits and currently work for either the number one or number two law firm as a paralegal.Thanks!
