Is it impossible to get into T6 with 3 LSAT takes?

Postby roranoa » Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:44 am

Here are my stats:

LSAT: 166/ cancel / going to take my last 3rd one later
GPA: International student (Superior...is how lsac labeled my gpa)

Softs: let's just say average.

Obviously I can't get into a T14 with the lsat score I have right now. What score would I at least need to get into any T14 school? What about T6? Is T6 out of the question now because I'll take the test three times?

I guess what I'm basically asking is, how bad is it that I took the lsat 3 times?

Edited for spelling

Not terrible, but bump that over 170 if you want to be save. You might get in SOMEwhere right now, but that's not close to a sure thing. With a 170, I would be surprised if you don't break T14. A 172 would probably be a sure thing.

What do you say my chances would be for T6? (minus Yale and Stanford)

No clue. Cycles are weird for international applicants. Apply far and wide.

It doesn't matter that you are taking it three times. Speculate on your chances when you have a new score. There are a ton of threads made by applicants just like you in the what are my chances thread. Look through there to see how you shape up.
