gpa and lsat...worried

Postby gellisc » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:32 pm

I have an undergraduate gpa of under 3.0 from a respected college in Atl; graduated in '03; have ample "work/real world experience"; am a minority...with that being said, what do you guys think is the MINIMUM LSAT score I should use as a benchmark to access the possibility of getting into at least a top 30-40 school?

Thanks,
Gellisc

Depends, are you AA? If so, if you're >2.7 or so and you get at least a 165, you have a great shot at a T30.

You should aim for a 162 for the T40

>2.7; ~165LSAT; would that possibly allow me to breach T20-14? I hear Cornell is trying to diversify...

Possibly. Im 3.0/167/URM(not AA) attending a T20. I would suggest setting your bench mark a point or two above whatever schools median LSAT.

Thanks nova, this will really help me focus and strive for a concrete goal and not an abstract wish.
