What schools should I target?

Postby RG10 » Tue Oct 29, 2013 11:37 am

Hello all. I'm an AA male with a little over a 3.7 GPA. I retook the LSAT in October and scored a 167. However, my softs really aren't that good. Given this, what schools should I apply to? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

No schools are off the table for an AA male with a 3.7/167

YSHCCN, Lower T14, and any regional school you would be interested in attending for free

For schools that don't give you fee waivers off the bat, request one via email.

+1. You have a legit shot at HYS and any of the schools in the lower T14 will likely throw piles of scholarship money at you. Apply to all the T14 and enjoy your options.

Okay that is great to hear! My lack of significant softs won't hurt me too much?

Nope. They would've helped if you had borderline numbers, but that's not the case. Enjoy you cycle.
