AA/White Male 162/4.0 chances?

Postby usaorbust » Sat Jul 08, 2017 9:40 pm

Above all I know I will be retaking, I've signed up for September. Averaged 6 points more than my score and made dumb mistakes on the June test. Just want to get a feel of where I could end up now in case I don't see improvement in September.

General Info: Bi-racial, decent softs, worked two jobs while in undergrad and one was legal related, top 20 public school.

Was aiming for the T14 but I don't know how realistic it is with this LSAT score. Especially interested in Uchi, NW, V, P, and GULC. Will write Why x essays for all possible schools.

MyLSN and LSN don't really have a lot of info for me to go off of and even looking through the past few URM result threads haven't given me the best picture of what my chances would be.

Are there any other places I should be targeting or should I be reevaluating everything with this lsat score?

Do you identify as an AA, white male, or just bi-racial? How you check the box will determine the responses--though a retake should be in order, regardless.

I checked both AA and white on my LSAC account and the Lsat, I identify more as AA than white but it seems disingenuous not to check white as well even though I identify more as AA. Plus I've identified as mixed on all documents for my whole life.

Is there a big difference between bi-racial and AA for numbers? I planned on writing my diversity experience about being mixed and educating others through collegiate debate about AA and African issues as well as that's affect on me.

No difference. It's fine to check both boxes if you actually identify as such. Your post title was just confusing.

Ah gotcha, I clarified a bit in the original post.
