The only places I would consider going to law school is either in Boston, NY, and Chicago. I hate the west coast and I hate the south.
Also I'm paranoid about job prospects and would like to attend a t14 school. My gpa is around a 3.78 with a year left, and my PT scores seem to indicate that the t14 school I would best have a shot at is Cornell. I wouldn't have a realistic shot at Chicago, Columbia, NYU unless I perform better than my average on the real LSAT (which is unrealistic).
Thus it leaves me with Cornell.
I also love cold weather and upstate NY. Call me crazy but Ithaca is beautiful.
I would say you're going to need a 167 to have any shot at a T14, and a 168 for a good shot. If that doesn't pan out this year, work on raising your GPA above 3.8 and reapply next year.
Is there really a big difference between a 3.8 and a high 3.7x?
And yeh. I agree. Anything below a 168 would put me out of the running at all t14 other than Cornell and would probably WL/Reject me at Cornell.
