165/3.03 AA Male is T14 out of the question?

Postby Manhattanman » Thu Jan 05, 2012 2:07 pm

Excellent softs- 2 years work experience in Bronx court system, upward trend, masters degree (4.0 transcript).

Is T14 acheivable with my numbers. What are your opinions on Fordham, BC, BU, GW. Or any other top schools I should give a shot. All help is appreciated.

According to LSN you've got at least a shot at Georgetown with those numbers. I would say Texas as well but they've been really strict with GPA this year. Shot at NW, shot at Penn. In other words, yes, you have a chance at several T14s and better than that at the other schools you mentioned.

Okay thanks I just stress about my low LSDAS GPA. Hopefully they take the GPA I got in grad school into account.

Keep in mind the early decision option.

That's great advice but I am applying this cycle and I think that it's too late for that. If for some reason I apply next cycle I will def take advantage of early decision. Thanks for the reply.

Shot a big chunk of the T14. (If you can apply both cycles, I would. This cycle you can just test the waters, and I have seen URMS offered $$$ late to up the law schools' URM numbers. If you apply early next cycle you'll have much better changes.) Best of luck.

You're good. 3.21/166 here. In at U Mich, NYU, & NU so far. As long as your statements are solid and you apply as early as possible, you'll be fine in the T14.

Good luck!
