158/2.84 (LSAC) MA Female

Postby MG88 » Mon Oct 31, 2011 6:31 pm

I will be retaking the LSAT in December, since my PTs were in the 160s (about 162/163), time completely killed me during the October test.

My low GPA is due to me being a Chemistry major at UCLA for my first two years of undergrad. My GPA for my Junior and Senior year were 3.18 and 3.54 respectively.

Any ideas where I should apply?

To be honest, I would cancel taking the December LSAT as that GPA is obviously sub 3.0 and getting into 160-163 isn't going to help much. While you will get a boost from being MA it would be in your best interest to study until June, get your scores up, and apply early in the next cycle. At this moment you are looking at schools outside the top 50.

... do not assume that because your GPA is low that you will be denied.
I know an AA male, he attends a school that is ranked at number 50. He had a 2.11 LSAC GPA - 161 LSAT. He receives 21k a year scholarship.... not exaggerating.

I do not exaggerate because when I met him, his story gave me hope.

African / Black Americans scoring above 160, need to aim high.


Poster is not AA, poster is MA. The boost is not as strong.
