chances at UVa, Cornell, UCLA

Postby smw24art » Sat Jun 26, 2010 2:32 pm

I go to a seven sisters schoool- so very prestigious.
I have a 3.75 gpa in math, and I'm a russian minor.
I got 164 on the LSAT.
I'm also a varsity athlete, am heaviy involved in the paper, student govt. and just finished an internship in finance at a bulge bracket i-bank.
Oh and I'm an international student, female (I guess that was obvious from the 7 sisters part)
What are my chances at schools like Cornell, Uva, UCLA, Vandy and USC?

I LOLed. Seven sisters is prestigious but I wouldn't go so far as to say very (Barnard, Bryn Mawr etc. is not THAT hard to get into).
First of all, what school you go to, unless its HYP, hardly makes a difference for law school admins. Athletics/ softs etc. are also almost negligible unless you have something absolutely astounding under your belt. That said, a 164 is not going to get you into any of those schools.

What's your real LSAT score? You said in another thread it's a 166, now you're saying it's 164?

If you're a URM, you have a shot at any of them, but should still add some safeties to the list. Otherwise, retake or aim lower. Also apply as early as possible. Schools really don't care where you did your undergrad or what your softs are.

Math major/Russian minor? My psychic powers tell me she's not URM.

Good to see that law students/applicants are not immune to ignorance.

No shot. Retake LSAT. Aim for high 160s/low 170s.

Schools with no males can't have prestige.
