176 3.03 = CCN?

Postby jdhopeful11 » Tue Aug 17, 2010 8:13 pm

I just finished PT 56 and scored a 176 and it got me thinking.. Do I have a shot at CCN with these numbers? LSP seems to predict I have an 18% chance via ED which makes me hopeful.

I have a legit GPA excuse which is what my PS is about, and also have an upward trend. Would it really be possible to get in with that GPA?

Not likely at all. Maybe if you >176 and ED to NYU, but I wouldn't hold my breath or put any money on it. I'd think you'd be quite a longshot at MVP as well. Best chance is to ED Northwestern if you have any work experience.

But I would definitely say you're aiming too high; however, that's a moot point. Take the LSAT and get a real score than worry about it.

Get a real LSAT score, then come back and try again.

You are suffering from Dr. Strangelove-Syndrome.

Dr. Strangelove used to post about how he was PTing between 175-178 and was wondering if he had a shot at CCNMVP. He had a 2.9x something GPA.

That dude literally created like 15 threads asking the same damn hypothetical questions without an actual LSAT score. He was talking about going into academia and all that.

June test day comes and goes, and BAM 165.

He is no longer considering law school and decided to be a CPA.

Pro tip: Don't waste time with hypotheticals if you don't have an LSAT score. Use that time to study!!!

You are clearly of the high academic caliber that CCN expect from their students, jdhopeful11.

ED at Penn. Bid nyc. But the overwhelming majority of testtakers report ~5pt drop from PT to actual test day score.

Girl, please. You're going about this all wrong-like. Pretend you aren't even going to law school. Study for the test like it's your new hobby, but dream about someday forcing new hires to correct their TPS reports. Stay up late making out the night before the test. Waltz in with the kind of relaxed contentedness that comes from not expecting or needing anything. This should be your attitude on test day:

ONLY THEN shall you allow yourself to dream about CCN.
