LSAT Below 25th, GPA Above

Postby Sheendream » Tue Apr 19, 2011 4:49 pm

Should I even bother applying to schools where my LSAT is 2 or 3 points below the 25th percentile but my GPA is above the median? Am I more likely to get lucky applying early decision in this case? Thanks!

If you have $ to waste sure. But unless you are a URM don't expect to get in.

It depends entirely on your 'softs'. I applied to many a school where my GPA was a touch below the 25th and my LSAT was somewhere between 50-75th and managed to get in. I even got scholarships at some. Feel free to pm me if you want to know more.

Why the hell not. Especially if you do this with several schools. It only takes one, and what's the extra couple hundred bucks when it could be the difference between going to Davis and UCLA.

TITCR for the top schools. Lower T1s on down tend to be less median-sensitive.
