Chicago for a re-taker?

Postby zreinhar » Wed Jan 06, 2010 9:56 am

I got a 155 on my Dec. LSAT, which was entirely my fault.. I am an engineering major and completely cocky.. but I now know the error of my ways and have since gotten my typical LR and LG scores down to between -0 and -2. The best way to explain it is that something just clicked. I read the stems way differently now and look at games way differently as well. I have good softs:

Lots of UG leadership
Published article in research journal (only author, not me and four other people writing it)
2 years of undergrad work experience (co-op at major research institute in eng.), also interned at an intellectual property firm
Lots of Undergrad awards, and an Electrical Eng major with a 3.71,

If I get somewhere above a 169, is there a chance at Chicago given the super late app? Penn? is there a chance at any t14?

Shameless bumps to follow..

Feb is way too late for this year, and only a few schools will take Feb scores anyway. the rest would only help you if you were WL'd, but you're an autoreject with 155. Keep studying, retake, and apply next year...

I called all the schools Im applying to, and asked to put my app on hold until the feb scores are available. I also looked at kids on LSN who submitted late and it kinda seems more like hit or miss than a straight up reject... but I guess Ill just wait and see..
