What should I do?

Postby mking2011 » Wed Aug 10, 2011 1:50 am

I've been a longtime lurker on this website's forums and decided to see if I could get some valuable opinions about my chances. Here are my stats as of this moment:
-African American Male with socio-economic disadvantage
-170 LSAT
-2.75 GPA (Started out horribly but straight As during last two semesters)
-Great Letters of Recommendations from Dean of my department and professor who has known me for a 3 years.

I want to attend Fordham or a T14 school, maybe NYU but that may be far-fetched with my GPA

Thanks in advance for the advice.

I don't think you have a shot at t6. But I think you should blanket t7-14 and then pick 3 other t25's you might want.

If you want Fodham you've got it.

Their LSAT 75th is 166
Their GPA 25th is 3.3

So you will boost their LSAT and Hurt there GPA but you get a HUGE urm boost so I think they will take you.

Still apply broadly and if you can get Fee waivers.

Blanket the T14, even the T20. You'll get money too.
