I have a 174/3.8. I'm a civil engineering master's student (master's gpa = 3.94). I think my LORs, PS, and resume are pretty decent, and I've worked and done research throughout my undergrad. Should I even bother to apply to Harvard/Stanford? For example, I'm above 75% Stanford LSAT and within middle 50% GPA, but it seems that all similar applicants on LSN were rejected or waitlisted. Will my major or the fact that I've done graduate work affect my chances? Just trying to save some money on futile apps.


You should apply.

Seriously? It's what, $200? I don't know how high the cost would have to be for me to not take a shot at the chance of a lifetime, but it's a lot higher than $200. With your numbers, there is no school you shouldn't apply to if you think you'd want to go there (including Yale btw).

Probably out at Y/S, maybe a WL? Definitely a shot at H and money CCN on down.

Worth the app at HYS though, given the trend in number of people taking the LSAT.

Grad work is a soft, but a minor one.

Apply so you have no regrets. If I had your GPA I would be doing just that.

How can someone with a 174 and a 3.8 ask such a stupid question?
