URM 3.9 165 chances??

Postby ZacharyBrown » Sun Feb 01, 2015 7:00 pm

Hey people! I'm an African American political science major with some pretty decent softs. I'm new to this blog and I just wanted yalls opinion on whether I had a feasible shot at getting into Harvard. I've got pretty tough skin, so be as honest as possible! Haha. I've already been accepted and received full rides to several of the T-14 but I just wanted to know what yall thought!

(Btdubz i applied like Early November) :(

Did you max out your PTs? As an AA with a 3.9 you'd probably be looking at serious T6 money if you could pull your score into the 170s.

Short of you making a lude comment to JS, you're going to get into Harvard. You really can't overstate how few applicants there are with your background and stats in the pool. There's a good shot that there are maybe 60-70 AA's in this entire pool with an LSAT at or above above 165 and that's before even taking into account your GPA, which is incredible.

Have you had your JS1 yet?
