3.1, 172, veteran

Post by nedwardian » Sun Aug 25, 2019 6:43 pm

Decided to retake and reapply after last cycle and bumped my lsat up closer to my practice average. Looking at UVA (where I was waitlisted last cycle with a 165 lsat), Georgetown, and wondering what other (if any) T14 schools I should be considering. Also weighing applying ED at UVA since they're my top choice and I hear they're military-friendly. I've read the veteran thread and got a lot out of it but it looks a little quiet lately so I thought I'd try here. Thanks!

With those splits, I'd throw an app at CCN on down, especially if you've got a compelling PS. Do you have government funding, or are you relying on scholarships/loans? The government funding would make an ED app to your favorite school worthwhile. I saw folks with similar LSATs and somewhat lower GPAs get into T13 schools ED in my cycle (class of 2021), so with a good PS you've got a shot.

Before offering any advice, we really need to know your GI Bill situation. ED to a school like UVA may be credited, but only if you're riding the Uncle Sam bandwagon.

Should have mentioned, I've got the full GI Bill so finances aren't as much of an issue.

i had a similar profile and got declined UVA ED but that was many years ago

no reason not to apply (at least RD) everywhere, though?

Thanks everyone, really appreciate the advice. Think I'll be applying to most of the T14 below HYS.
