AA male/ 3.67/ 160 Chances?

Postby kdubb513 » Tue Nov 02, 2010 10:45 am

I am already planning on retaking in December because I mis-bubbled the answer sheet but what are my current chances? I really don't have a favorite school and I am looking at T-20.

Im not sure what are great softs but I have been President of 5+ Student Groups and very involved in undergrad. Some undergrad research. Not much work experience though

Overall your chances are very strong for schools outside HYS. Increase the LSAT to 170 or above and I think you'll be golden at Harvard. Stanford would be totally up in the air and as for Yale, a strong possibility of being dinged but who knows?

Just shoot for as high an LSAT score in December and apply throughout.

I got invited to apply for the Duke Priority Track. Should I apply before the retake?

YES! Apply to every school that you are interested in before your retake. Frankly, although I encourage you to retake and get a higher score, you are already fine for getting into top 14 schools. You have a decent shot at Harvard and Stanford as you stand. Apply everywhere and then let them know that you are retaking. Essentially your retake is only to increase your chances at HYS and to increase the amount of scholarship money you are offered at the rest of the top 14. You are already a lock for all non top 14 schools.
