Not Sure about Percentile...

Postby lawks » Thu Jan 03, 2013 1:59 pm

I scored 3 points below my ideal school's 25% LSAT--but my GPA is top 75%. Is three points significant and in need of a Feb retake and a prayer or no, is it fine?

Without knowing your specific situation it's difficult to say definitively. Are you a URM? Is it in-state?

Regardless, 3 points below the 25% LSAT range would be pretty difficult to overcome in most situations I could think of, no matter what your GPA. Retaking would probably be wise, especially when you consider you'll likely want to attain scholarships wherever you end up.
