MA Female. 3.46 and 158

Postby uvahopeful2 » Wed Oct 18, 2017 5:08 pm

Mexican-American female applicant with a GPA of 3.46 and LSAT score of 158. Retaking is NOT an option

-Undergraduate university is a top 10 public univ (FL)
-Will have all applications submitted by Oct 31
-Wrote detailed "Why X" essays for each school
-My personal statement, diversity statement, and Why X essays are hopefully very strong pieces of my application (used a consultant from PowerScore to make sure everything is perfect)
-Strong LORs from a professor and former employer

-Phi Alpha Delta
-State (1st) and National (2nd) champion for business competition
-2 years work experience (leasing manager and owner of a business)
-1 internship
-Founded a business while in college, have been working for it during my gap year
-Mentored high school students
-Overcame significant hardships

Applying to:

U Penn
U Michigan
UVA (visited & took a guided tour a couple weeks ago)
UT Austin

Do I have a chance at any T14 schools? I wanted to apply ED to Northwestern for a chance at the scholarship they offer, but I don't think I'll have a chance after speaking with a law school application consultant. Where should I ED at to give me my best chances at being accepted? I really want to attend a T12 school but now I don't think I can with my #s.

**After some feedback, do I have any chances of getting into these schools?

ED at UT Austin
Notre Dame
Arizona State

Apply, but its not a guarantee. If you don't get an offer you deem as worthy then retake and reapply.

I don't think any of the responses here will differ from the one's you're getting in the "What are my chances? " forum
