AA Male: 3.7/160

Postby VikingsFan13 » Wed Jan 02, 2013 11:47 pm

Hello TLS!

Bombed the LSAT. A retake is not an option. Is there any school worth going to that will accept me? I'm interested in Biglaw (domestic and overseas).

Thanks,

Thanks,

May I ask why a retake is not an option? You could be looking at HYS with a slightly better score.

Retake is always an option unless you've hit your limit of tests.

Longshot at YSHCCNPVB. But worth the app.

Decent shot at Mich/Duke/NU. Good shot at Cornell/GULC. Youll probably snag 1 or 2.

Its very likely you would be admitted to schools UT/USC/WUSTL/Emory/BU.

If you email the adcomms that youre an AA male with a 3.7/160 they will probably waive the app fee.

Absolutely retake. 3.7/165+ puts most of the T14 in play. Bump that to a 169+ and HYS becomes likely.

Yea, unfortunately I can't retake (long and personal story). I guess I'll just apply and see what happens. I'd be happy with GULC, though. Thanks for the advice.

Just over 50/50

What are the chances the Vikings beat the Packers?

Would anybody be interested in taking a look at my personal statement? I could really use the help. Thanks.

Congrats man! I didn't get a dime from those bastards. I probably would've chosen USC over them anyway, but I'm still bitter.
