Where should I apply?? 178/3.25 AA male
« on: November 21, 2010, 01:48:26 PM »
Basically the title.

I plan on sending out a few apps next week and was wondering who I should target.
I imagine it is hard to predict because I'm a URM splitter.
I used one of the calculators and it seemed overly optimistic.....

please give me some: reaches, safties, and targets.

I would apply to Columbia, NYU, and Chicago.  With a 178 and URM status, I believe you will be accepted into one.  Your safety schools are basically the bottom of the T14 I would believe

The above profile is from someone with a 176 and a 3.35 and a NON_URM.  They were accepted outright to Cornell.  They were waitlisted at Columbia, Duke, GULC, NYU and Michigan.  With your 178 and URM status, you could expect some of those waitlisted to be acceptances

I'd apply everywhere you want to go.  I think you've got a great shot at any school in the country.  I really liked HLS and would recomended it  ;)  Not to be presumptuous, but HLS BLSA is very active and cool.  I'm white and still attended several of their events  :P  I've never really been one for safety-schools or backup plans, but that's me.  Going into the app process I expected my priorities would be UVA-Chicago (tie) > Stanford-Harvard (tie), after more research and visits everywhere I decided on HLS and have been quite happy with that.  I'm pretty sure I'd have been happy at the others as well.  I'd have gotten a better tan at Stanford, graduated with minimal debt from UVA and dunno how life would differ if I'd gone to Chicago.

OP: Here's the LSN profile of a relatively similarly situated posted from 2 cycles ago: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/mightyhim. I personally would just apply to the T14.

Apply to Harvard...my friend got in with a 3.2. Your LOR must be strong as well as your personal statement.

Do you mind sharing or giving a range of your friends LSAT score?

I'm a 3.4 AA female in hopes of snagging a Harvard and Stanford acceptance.
