163, 2.91 Hispanic(Dominican) Male: BU Chances this cycl

Postby jg_ » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:45 am

Firstly, I am retaking in February provided I can locate the spirit to resume studying. December was my first take and my results were:

RC: -4
LR: -5; -6
LG: -7 (missed 5 out of the last 6 questions. the last game really fucked me).

I did my undergrad at BU (class of 2013) and want to apply this cycle. No compelling excuse for my GPA and I'll do my best to write a not boring version of the "i was young and stupid my first year" addendum that I'm certain they're all tired of reading (2.0 GPA freshman year, nothing below a 3.1 the rest of my semesters).

LOR's from one of my BU professors and my employer who's a litigator in NYC. Assuming my PT/Diversity Statement is above average and perhaps even memorable, is BU still a reach?

My GPA sucks and I'm applying "'late", to say nothing of the fact that BU's LSAT median apparently went up to 164 this cycle. Obviously being below both medians is no bueno and I'm hoping to score at least a 164 on my re-take.

I'm an old man now (25) and feel it's this cycle or bust. If I don't do better in February, are my odds grim?
