Georgetown Part-Time

Postby j-select » Tue Mar 06, 2012 6:54 pm

157 LSAT. 3.67 GPA. Great softs. Currently working for Senate leadership. What are my chances at Georgetown part-time?

0. Now that PT students are factored into LSAT/GPA medians for the USNWR rankings you need to pretty much have almost the same stats as FT students.

If you want GULC PT you should retake for a 170+ LSAT

Agree that your 157 LSAT score renders Georgetown a pipe-dream whether applying for the full-time or part-time program. Consider enrolling in a prep course & retaking the LSAT for a 168+.

How much do you think work experience matters for the T14?

I asked the same question. I was told not much.

This is about right. Some schools require it (NU/Harvard), but most schools won't care that much. And they certainly won't care enough to give you a boost to overcome a bad GPA or LSAT (note it doesn't give you a boost at NU/HLS either, it's more of an additional requirement at those schools).
