Is there such a thing as a Harvard lock?

Postby Helicio » Sun Aug 22, 2010 1:00 am

Just curious. Like is there an LSAT/GPA combo. that nearly guarantees entrance into Harvard law? What if someone, a non-URM, had a 180 and a 3.95, for example?

Just curious, as always :).

Be President of the United States, and 4.0 and 180.

4.0 180 is pretty much a lock. You would have to have typos in your application to be rejected.

4.0 180 URM is a lock. I don't care if you have 0 softs and write the most mind numbingly boring essay ever.

No. But, ironically enough, there is such a thing as a Yale lock:

Not a lock but because Harvard has a larger class than s and Y they're a bit more predictable, and have to let in a certain percentage of people above both medians.

So yeah, basically keep your GPA up, kill the LSAT in June at the end of your Junior year, and re-discover your lost African-American roots. Then you're golden.
