Reverse splitting

Postby hmm » Sun Aug 28, 2011 1:19 am

Are there any schools that are particularly friendly to reverse splitters? I have a 3.9x GPA and am taking the LSAT this October, but I'm not sure I'll be able to break 170, which was originally my goal. It's looking more like mid-160s... or low 160s if I get really unlucky on test day. If I don't get the score I want, I'd really rather not retake. I know retake is always the answer, but I don't want to go through the process of studying for this test again and I don't want to wait another year to go to law school.

SO, back to the original question... Can a reverse splitter hope to get into ANY of the T14? I have heard that some schools on the west coast value a high GPA, which is good news for me as Cali is where I hope to eventually end up. But I'm not sure how true this is or not.

I'm starting at Northwestern with a 4.0/165. Got wait listed at all the other T-14s except for a ding from NYU. I didn't really try to work to get off any of them but think I could have with enough effort.
