What LSAT would I need to get into Cornell?

Postby ggilbert2008 » Sat May 29, 2010 11:53 pm

My GPA at my school (which is a small state university) is a 3.45.
I have a lot of letters of recommendations from some professors who I've know since my freshman year
I took a diagnostic LSAT test with Kaplan before studying anything and happened to get a 161 and I'm aiming for a 170.
Would a 170 be good enough to get into Cornell with a 3.45 and as an URM (black male).

Thanks for all the responses.

A 170 would you get into Cornell. I'd venture to say 161/2 to have a solid shot.

As an URM you might only need about a 165, but I honestly don't know. I would say a 168 would be almost automatic acceptance. Keep studying hard though.

As a URM, a 168 will get you in, maybe even lower...

161/162 with 3.45 + URM is TCR. Just look at law school numbers.

OP, if your diagnostic was 161, you have a legit shot at 170+. If you get high 160s, aim higher than Cornell. Apply to Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Chicago, and NYU. You'll probably be out at the first three, butif you can pull off 169+ you have a good shot at the last three.
