Knock might actually have a point since both of those schools have been YPing like crazy this cycle. But obviously you have nothing to worry about if that does happen to you. Congrats on your super amazing cycle!!!

A friend of mine was just accepted to Harvard with a 3.2 GPA, took the LSAT twice with a 161 and then a 168. I didn't believe him but he has some ridiculous softs as well.

Congrats! If you got that much love from them my guess is that you're going to have a great cycle. Good luck with the other 23!

Mind sharing some of those softs? Also, I'm assuming the GPA was from an Ivy? Great news all around.

Finally got a chance to send 13 apps out today. 1 more this evening and about 5 matches/safeties mid month when I get paid again. Good luck everyone.

Hi guys,

I have a 158 with a 3.87 from a public ivy. Any idea as to what schools I should be looking at? Any help would be appreciated.

jfer2424, please consider retaking. With just a few more points, your options are likely to increase drastically.

How hard did you study for the LSAT? With that GPA you are really holding yourself back with such a mediocre LSAT..

4-6 more points on the lsat and you will be in a completely different tax bracket. Pending your personal schedule, you should retake my friend.

Yeah I was like....really? It's just good to hear back. My apps all went out in November after the LSAT scores came in so hopefully between now and January I'll have more good news.
