Chance me 3.57 GPA & 170 LSAT

Postby dassale1 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:25 pm

I have 4 years of experience working as a petroleum engineer. Can I get into HYS with 3.57 GPA ( petroleum engineering degree from UT ) and 170 LSAt score? I am a African American woman if that can help.

I think that'll be hard. You'll need to write a killer PS. My friend had same GPA but several points higher on the LSAT but didn't get in, and he's URM. He got scholly though at lower T14 and is now going to graduate pretty much debt free at V20. Apply everywhere and if you don't get into Harvard that's all right. And if you do, that's totally awesome.

I'm not sure I agree with the above post. From everyone I've met and talked to at Harvard, I would actually wager you have a better than decent shot with those stats, softs, and URM status. As a fellow URM applying this cycle I definitely encourage you to apply broadly (all t-14) and take advice on TLS and other forums with a grain of salt. Very few people actually know how this process works for URM applicants. I've already been granted acceptances to a few places TLS would have all but decidedly told me not to even waste my time applying. Good luck, and congrats on all your achievements thus far!!

Yea, you have a good chance at all 3. My GPA and LSAT were both lower than yours and I got into most T-14 schools with scholarships. HYS is a bit more of a wildcard but if you write a strong PS/DS then I would be shocked if you don't get at least 1.
