MA URM Chances

Postby Last Chance » Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:26 pm

I am trying to temper my expectations, so I would appreciate some help estimating my chance of acceptance to the T14 and T6 respectively.
Male MA URM
168 LSAT
3.56 LSAC GPA
3.73 GPA from graduating institution (messed around first year before shaping up and subsequently transferring--i.e. upward trend)
Softs: 3 years out of undergrad, all three years working full time as a data scientist for the prison system.
UC Berkeley undergrad (I guess technically not a soft)

Thank you all for your help, this site has been an incredible resource for me.

A friend with similar-ish stats is at Harvard. I say you're a lock within the T6.

You will definitely get into at least one of Columbia or NYU. Maybe more T6. You will have more T14 than those. Probably a decent scholarship from lower T14 like Cornell.

Both of these outcomes would be awesome. Thank you, this is quite encouraging.
