What does that mean in the real world in terms of money and opportunities? I thought all biglaw started at 160.
I guess the first step is to man up and take the LSAT. Perhaps I should avoid law school unless I can score HYS?
What's your GPA? If it's below 3.7, you're pretty much out of luck for YSH no matter what you score on the LSAT
Not necessarily true. Do you know how medians work?
Do you know how GPA floors work?
True dat. But you also admitted:

If you aren't a URM (black, native American, or certain types of Hispanic, IIRC), you have to be a really special applicant to get in with a GPA below 3.7. Being a successful doctor for several years might make you a special applicant, but I wouldn't count on it.
Which actually shows that you agree with me, since it doesnt necessarily hold true for "special applicants"
, as you said yourself. I think being a doctor for a long time could help bump her (her?) up to the that bracket of people, as long as there are other things about her she has yet to disclose with us such as URM, or what not, that could help her application.
In other words, its not impossible to get in with less than a 3.7, its just... highly unlikely.
