LORs: 2, 1 academic and 1 employer

Thoughts: Study for the LSAT. Study for the LSAT. Study some more for the LSAT. Most adcomms weigh the LSAT at least equal to GPA, and for many it's weighted significantly higher. You've got to approach the LSAT as if it's more important than any test you've taken so far in your life, because if you want to get into a good law school, it probably is. Also, get those LORs together - this almost burned me, too, and was a lot harder than I thought it would be, particularly with a few years separating me from UG. Apply everywhere you can afford to apply - the worst thing that can happen is you get rejected, but the potential upside is pretty huge. Use TLS wisely - take advice where it's offered, but don't think that any particular person (or group, for that matter) is all-knowing. At the end of the day, we're not adcomms and we can only speculate as to what they're looking for.

Sorry mean Reserve think about Columbia where the Reserve is the waitlist :oops: I will likely be taking UVIC (53,150 vrs 10,000) and UVIC is a really great program, still would be cool to get a Ivy(I should note I applied on the last day so I happy with two T-14 Reserve with a 3.,2 159 )

I think I made them quite interesting (the DS in particular is quite cool and interesting very much a story)

I think most people's cycles are done at this point so there isn't a whole lot to post in this thread, other than updating if you got in off a waitlist.

I highly doubt 1 page reflects the URM In/Out/WL on TLS. Just an added motivator for those who haven't posted yet.

Apply early. I applied after most deadlines like an ass. Plan to re-apply day one and crack the T-14. Any idea how high a score I'll need for HYS?

I would say you need at least a 170 with that GPA. But I could be wrong...

That's what I was thinking as well, but didn't know if a 170 would be enough...

To be honest, it might not. I would say with a 173+ you have a fighting chance, and as cryingmonkey's profile demonstrates HYS might bite.

Just read they average LSAT scores. If that's the case, not even a 180 will do...
