Please tell me my chances???

Postby Desim08 » Wed Jun 06, 2012 11:55 pm

I am an AA male with 3.84 in Electrical Engineering. Of course I am shooting for a 180 on the LSAT, but what is my range to get in a T14?

Like, 159. But for the love of god, go for as high as you possibly can. A 171 will easily get you a full ride at CCN.

In the event you dont check it out however:

break 170 and very very good shot at Harvard, very good shot at Stanford, good shot at Yale.

Blanket the T14 with aplications, can expect $$$ from Columbia down

160+ should get you in somewhere T14

I know you already stated that your goal is 180, and that's great. But just to overemphasis, do not allow yourself to set a lower bar because of your GPA and URM status. Remember that you are competing for scholarships as well as admission. Scoring at or above whatever schools median will likely result in a big scholarship.

Thank you all for your advice. How big of a role will my engineering major play?

Not much. If you don't have any work experience/internships alongside that major, even less.
