What are my chances LSAT 166-170, GPA 3.23

Postby SHANbangs » Thu Apr 29, 2010 10:25 am

Hey guys,

I my LSAC converted GPA is going to be a 3.235, possibly lower, possibly higher, but definitely down to 3.2. I'd have higher but I got a D+ in first year calc, otherwise I'd probably ahve around a 3.38-3.4. My current LSAT score is 166. I'm fairly confident I can hit 170, but afterwards it's a crapshoot. Anyways, I'm looking at mostly splitter schools and top 30 schools. Do I have a reasonable shot with the current LSAT and GPA at any of these school? What about with a higher LSAT? What's the minimum LSAT I'd need to get to have a reasonable shot? I will def ED one of them (probably Georgetown).

Georgetown
Penn
Cornell
Chicago
BU
BC
GWU
UM
Notre Dame
Duke
Minnesota
American (not top 30 but I wanna be in DC)
UIUC
Canadian Schools:
Osgoode/York
McGill
UBC
Queen's
Western Ontario

Jesus.

Not to be a huge dick, but come on. How are you going to fare in law school if you can't even figure out an internet forum?

I had a 3.4/169 and these were my results at the following schools. I applied in November, regular decision, to all of them.

Georgetown - R
Penn - R
BU - A
BC - WL
GWU - A
Notre Dame - WL
Duke - R

ED might change your changes at some of these schools, though you'd probably have to sneak in at any of them.

My crappy GPA screwed me on scholly $$ everywhere too, so be prepared for mega debt. Get your LSAT score as high as you can because that's what will hopefully get you admitted at some t-30 schools.

166-170 is a big range

Alright Kalvano,

Now I want to see you do that to the 123891238120398 other chances inquiries on the admissions section of the forum. Now that I think about it, you WOULD be good lawyer: anal retentive fixation on the letter of the rules.

No wonder people hate lawyers.
