Amazing LSAT. Not really a "splitter."

I think splitters are technically applicants at/below one 25% and at/above one 75%. OP is a splitter.

Thanks! I took a PowerScore LSAT Course..best 1200 bucks I've ever spent. Saw someone recommend it here on the forums so I gave it a shot. Does that give me a shot at NYU? I don't really have any softs other than a White House Intern..I don't think that really counts for anything but it does allow me to write a personal statement with confidence?

OP you owe it to yourself to work your butt off and get that GPA up. Take easy classes in the winter and summer. You should be alright everywhere except for YHS where your GPA is a little low. I would apply anyway, but you need to get that GPA up

Thanks! I will do. I didn't think I had a shot at YHS but I think I'll apply anyways. I'm sure I can at least get it to a 3.6sh before graduation comes around. I will take winter/summer classes for sure..aiming at taking nice and easy ones for easy GPA points. The reason my GPA is so low is because I got a D in one of my courses Freshman year and three C's. But my GPA definitely improved from there.

3.6 (hypothetical) LSDAS GPA & 178 LSAT

In at at least 2/3 of CCN if not all 3. Might be worth the app fee to Harvard. Good luck!

+1. I'd send an app to H. It's like a $100 lottery ticket with much better odds. :D.

Congrats on the stellar LSAT btw.

this. It's fully possible to be a splitter at some schools but not others.

OP, I'd reiterate 2/3 at CCN with probably 30k at N. That or at least 60K at MVP, but you're probably not getting a shot at HYS (apply to H for the lulz tho)
