Should I apply to Cornell EA?

Should I apply to Cornell EA?
« on: September 20, 2009, 08:01:43 PM »
3.4GPA from Cornell. 155 LSAT (have been in this range for all of my PTs and am taking in September). URM Black Male.

If I get a 155 in September should I submit to Cornell EA (non-binding)? I would probably include an addendum saying that I will probably retake in December.
Is it likely I will get flat-out rejected? Based on LSN I figured I had a shot.

Looking at LSN, it would appear that most URMs with your numbers were at least waitlisted or outright accepted- so I would go for it. You can always let them know you are retaking.

Groundkontrol to Major Tom...

Just had to do it.  Anyhow, I'm a URM Black Male as well and broke 160 on a practice exam, but most of my PTs were in the high 150's.  I wish I had your undergrad GPA, as mine is a few dings lower from another upstate NY outfit. I'm looking at good schools as well and one T14 (Penn), but I'm biting my nails and waiting for the results from last Saturday's test.  Best of luck on your application cycle.  I'm probably going to apply EA to BC.
