Just wanted an idea of...

Postby collegebum1989 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 1:18 am

My chances at a T14 school, how about CCN?

UG GPA: 3.2 (engineering) - 2011, upward curve, 3.6 for senior year
Masters GPA: 4.00 (engineering at ivy) - 2012

International Fellowship - 2012-2013 - similar to Fulbrite but for Engineers - Global Heath project between Harvard Medical School and research institute in developing nation in Asia (first researcher going to country for this fellowship)

Softs:
-2 years research at government lab run by DOE
-started a university chapter of charity organization and visited developing nation twice
-founded a startup company after graduation
-President of fraternity

LSAT: Taking in June! Maybe retake in October

Two things I want to know:
-Is it even possible for me to get into CCN? If so, what target LSAT?
-How valuable will the fellowship be for next year? I've also applied to industry and USPTO jobs.

Interested in patent law.

Why would you do a masters in engineering an ivy league school (other than Cornell)? They are TTT for engineering.

You probably aren't getting CCN, but CCN vs. the rest of the T14 isn't a huge factor in patent firm recruiting.

What schools you can get into is almost 100% determined by your LSAT so don't fuck up.

At least 175 as a target.

Maybe NYU with 175+, but even that's a long shot.

Yeah I'm at Cornell. Is that 175 for CCN or any T14 in general?

170 for the T-14. If you break 175 ED NYU otherwise move down the ladder. The "CC" in "CCN" are serious longshots.
