AA Male 158/2.8 Is it Worth Applying to these Schools?

Postby SouthernSoul » Wed Jan 02, 2013 10:03 pm

I'm an AA Male with 2+ years of work experience. My stats are 158 (after re-take)/2.8 (worked nearly full-time during u-grad and suffered).

I originally had my eyes set on schools such as Northwestern, Cornell, Vandy, Emory, and Notre Dame. I've looked around on LSN and haven't seen anything too hopeful.

Does anyone still think I have a shot at these schools this cycle?

Can you retake the LSAT? If you can, you should.

Preferably I'd like to apply during this cycle. I don't think I could take it again in February and if I did, wouldn't be able to devote the proper time to study between now and then.

NU, Cornell, Emory, and Vandy are very unlikely

Best shot of what you listed is ND.

More reasonable reaches would be WUSTL, ASU/Arizona, Iowa, Wisc, Illi, W&M, and Colorado

Retake in June in case your cycle doesnt shake out.
