Does ED Make it Easier to Get In?
« on: August 03, 2005, 02:52:16 PM »
Does anyone know if ED makes it easier to get in or will the criteria be the same? In specific I'm thinking of applying ED to Georgetown. Is there any benefit to doing so?

From what I know (purely from what others have told me), ED makes it much more difficult to "get in."

for the most, part, ED does make it easier to gain admission to a particular school.

Maybe I should email G'Town and ask. I need to make sure they take your highest LSAT anyways, otherwise it would be a real reach. Cornell likes ED applicants? That would be the only other choice for me to ED at, for me Cornell and G'town are like 1 and 1a.

in general, ed will make it easier to get in provided your scores are at or around their target. check out lawschoolnumbers.com for specific schools.  this is a small sample, though.

I guess some schools may view erectile dysfunction as a hardship that you've had to overcome.  However, I wouldn't count on it.

erectile dysfunction =/= a hardship

Damn.  I came here to post a witty erectile dysfunction joke, but they've all been had.

It does help somewhat in getting in. IT shows a school that it is you #1 choice and that you will attend. It is good if you are on the lower end of their accept range, if you are somewhere within the school's medians. It won't help if you are a marginal candidate for acceptance.

I guess then it also wouldn't make you overcome.
