URM HYS Graduate

Postby hvdgrad09 » Sat Oct 09, 2010 10:24 pm

I've searched for this but no one meets this exact situation so I figure I'd put it out there.

I graduated from Harvard undergrad programs in Biochemistry. My overall GPA may only be a 3.64, but by my GPA steadily increased until I received a 4.0 for my senior year.

I'm also Mexican-American.

I am looking to attend HS (not Yale), for law school, and I was wondering what LSAT score range I need. Right now, I am currently getting 165s on practice tests. What should I be aiming for?

You should be aiming for 180, but 167-168 puts you in play.

Basically if you get what you've been getting on your practice tests or higher, you have a good shot at Harvard and Stanford. If you score a 170 or higher you will be guaranteed to get one of the 2.

Or your money back.

Edit: And why do you have to say you're a "HYS grad"? Did you graduate from all three or just Harvard (as your username suggests)? :roll: jw

Bahahaha, amazing catch. Also, Harvard grad has some animosity towards Yale?
