166 LSAT/3.71/URM-MA/ Chances at T-16 this late?

Postby sita0607 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 7:03 am

LSAT: 166
GPA: 3.71
URM- Mexican-American
1st generation/fee waiver/pretty unique childhood/worked A LOT in college

I am planning to send in all of my apps tomorrow and Tuesday (the 19th and the 20th) to ALL the t-16.

But now I am seriously wondering, should I even bother???

I know my numbers aren't stellar and it's pretty late in the cycle. The amount of information on Mexican-American applicants and admits really suck, so I do not know what to do! Anybody else know what it's like for MAs?

cover widely hope for the best it may be a weird cycle. Time does not matter as much as some people on TLS think although it does matter esp. for URMs.

I think you have great chances. I would throw apps at the entire ~T-20 plus or minus any schools you love/hate. You actually have great chances with those numbers and your MA status.

Keep in mind a bunch of people are getting deferred right now from ED/EA because schools are waiting for great applicants like you. Just apply ASAP!

What's a T16?

In all seriousness, you'll do great. Your numbers are strong and even though this is late, plenty of people apply around now. And worrying about it won't change anything. Just apply now.

What are your application deadlines?

People who took the December LSAT still have until March for a lot of schools. It's enough time. Go look at LSN website and you can see when people applied. A lot of people (as someone else indicated) apply around this time.
