Re: Odds at Acceptance to HLS?

What everyone else has said. Is it possible to get in with a 3.75? Yes. But everything else needs to be absolutely stellar to pull it off.

My back of the envelope math says you should be over the GPA floor. Now you just need an elite test score to go with it.
Agreed. If you took a similar number of hours each semester, should be around 3.75 - 3.8. But as others have said, you'll need a stellar test score, too.

Totally dependent on the judge. Some only keep the OSCAR app open a few days, some for several months.

For cover letters? Yes. I agree with you - that's pretty much how any cover letter for any job should work. Resumes they had several different formats/modes of organization as samples.

Re: Unlocking 1L SAs

Also want to echo the thoughts above about Texas. Many, many Texas firms hire non-diverse 1L SAs.

That being said, ties to Texas are important for snagging one. The firms guard against people who just want a 1L SA and then plan to head to NYC/SF/DC 2L summer.

Re: Round 3: Post-Negotiation Options

This is tough because I don't have much insight into how Vandy or WUSTL place in Maryland. If it were me, I'd probably pick Vandy. That debt figure is about what I had from UT and paying it off has not been terrible. A drag, for sure, but doable.
