Applied to: T-14 (Penn on down), UCLA, Vanderbilt, WUSTL, Boston Univ, Boston College, Notre Dame, Loyola, Santa Clara

I applied in January after receiving Dec LSAT.

Sorry to say this, but unless you have 4+ years of significant work experience, I don't think you have a chance at any of those schools except for maybe loyola or santa clara.

i know it seems like this is what people ALWAYS say on here, but I think it would really help you to retake the lsat and get a year or two of we under your belt.

No chance at ANY T-14 bro. Fellow AA male speaking. The sub 3 will hurt you as well as the January applications. You'll get into some good schools, Top 50. You'd fare better if you can work a year, sit out this cycle, and apply early next year.

PM'ed you my lsn since we have somewhat similiar #'s that might give you a better picture. If you're trying to stay in Cali, apply to Hastings via their LEOP program. GL

Top 14 is a huge stretch, won't hurt to try a few, but I would sugges sending plenty of apps to lower t1 and t2 and you should have some. GPA is pretty rough though, especially this late in the cycle.
