Check out lawschoolnumbers.com to get an idea, but the hardstat gpa/lsat index will be the greatest determinant.

That said, YHS isn't real likely, although anything else there's at least a chance.

If you're super-set on high T14 (as you should be), retake the LSAT. A low to mid 170s with that GPA and those softs could even garner scholly at T10.

Berkeley is a strange beast though, and they've accepted people with those numbers. The softs would have more weight there too, it seems from interviews and acceptances.

I'm currently a 2nd year corps member at TFA, getting my Masters in Urban Ed Policy.
Stats: 168 LSAT + 3.84UGPA, lots of softs (debate, leadership, etc). LORs are good.

Ideally, I'd like to stay in Cali for law school, but I'm open to DC and NY.

I am swamped as a teacher and don't have time to waste applying to schools that I don't have a shot at... thanks for any input that you might have!

Chances? T-14? Stanford?


You could get into every cali school but stanford and berkeley

Lower half of the t-14 is also an option
