LSAT 160, 3.87 LSDAS GPA, MA URM

Postby TheIdealist » Wed Jan 04, 2012 9:28 pm

Hey, so I just got my December score with an 160. My LSDAS GPA is a 3.87 and I'm a Mexican American. I know its late in the cycle, but what are my chances in terms of getting into a good law school?

Edit: I should specify some schools, I'm looking at UC Berkeley, UCLA, GULC, and UChicago. Also BU, and Fordham.

Hey, you are going to be in the upper median GPA for most schools you apply and your LSAT is respectable. Have your application complete in the next 2 weeks and you will get in a decent school.

Thanks! :]

I added some schools since that would probably be a good idea.

I personally say sit out the cycle. You have a clutch GPA, a 170+ puts you in the T-14 with money.

Apply to them all and do it quickly. Request fee waivers, you should get them. I think if you got a 164 you would be a lock for all those schools. They say the URM LSAT boost is strongest for AA males but all you need is a 4-5 point boost. Your GPA is very strong. The good news is if you don't get in you'll have 3 months to study and rock the June LSAT and then you'll go to a great school... probably for free. Good Luck

I agree with Rawl.
