Chances at t14

Postby dhoms17 » Tue Feb 09, 2010 12:49 pm

I just sent in my apps (mainly Feb 15 and March 1st) deadlines. I have a 3.62 at Stern (NYU) undergrad and an LSAT score of 170. What do you think my chances are at T14 (many of which I applied to). Thanks.

Google "Law school predictor" and "Law school numbers". The fact that you went to NYU doesn't really matter in law school admissions sorry. Regardless, I would be very surprised if you don't get in at a bunch of places at least in the 6-14 range.

+1. The only thing not going for you is how late you applied, but people will debate how much that matters. You'll be in at least a couple T14's I would imagine. Good luck.

Ehhh... 3.62 is below median almost everywhere and a 170 isn't all that impressive. Combined with super late applications.... I think you'll see a lot of WLs and wouldn't be shocked if you're not admitted to any T14s outright.

Thanks, Debbie Downer haha.

Edit: That's not to say that you're not right.

If you had applied earlier, you would have gotten at least Michigan, Virginia, Duke, Cornell, and Georgetown. Now, you're not a guarantee at any of them and could possibly be shut out. You should probably still get Cornell, though.
