You've had a great cycle so far! We've got pretty similar stats. I hope you get into all your targets. What's your #1?

Thank you! It looks like you're going to do very well yourself. UChicago is my dream school, but I'm wary of paying sticker price (and even if I get in, scholarships seem unlikely). So more realistically, Michigan, Cornell, and UVA are tied for #1, depending on schollies. I'm hoping to visit campuses within the next month or two.

Looks like that LSAT score boost was a huge help at Michigan! Congratulations!! Did WashU increase your scholarship amount?

Thanks! Yes, Michigan doubled their previous offer after the new LSAT score was released. WashU increased their scholarship offer from $105,000 to full tuition plus $10,000 stipend for three years. I'm very happy with how it's turning out - retaking was one of the best decisions I've ever made!
