Congrats on the acceptances!! I'm applying to a lot of the same schools as you, hope it goes just as well.

Alright? You have Cornell listed as a "long shot." You'd be an auto-admit at Cornell with 3-4 more points on your LSAT. You need to retake, too.

FWIW, I'm probably going to take a year off or so and retake/reapply, so I'm well aware. Just thought I'd cast a wide net this cycle since apps are down and see what happens.

I'm 164 3.89.

Didn't apply to any huge reaches but I've gotten a few acceptances and at least one awesome scholarship

You should rename this thread "People who need to retake the LSAT unite"

Chicago with a 166 is about as killer as I can imagine, I'd be willing to gues you had some nasty softs though.

Naw... this is about as killer as I can imagine. (LSN)



Ahhh yeah I've seen kingsfield's cycle on the Acceptances threads...it's so disheartening seeing someone with the same LSAT as me posting on all the same threads as me withdrawing because he's in HLS. Gonna go kill myself/study LR til my eyes bleed :cry:

I have been, too. But that does not move RS's away from financial obstacles. No T20 is going to give a 3.9 a serious scholly if their LSAT is a 155.

Couldn't have said it better myself (all the more reason I'm leaning towards a retake).

While we're certainly a minority I doubt we're underrepresented in law school (since I'm pretty sure there's no statistics on atheists in law school I'm just going to take this on faith).

And I have to throw out the standard disclaimer that while some people do very well despite mediocre-for-the-T14 LSATs, they are the exceptions that prove the rule, and they could've done even better with a retake (as kappycaft1 admitted). Even Kingsfield probably could've gotten Y if he had retaken and gotten a 170+, though based on his user name it's possible that H was his no. 1 choice in any case.
