But that includes ED at every school, which isn't realistic, so this is more realistic had I applied early: http://www.mylsn.info/uzj0i3
And I don't think I'd be at the median. I tend to be successful when I put the effort into what I do, and I don't think law school will be the magic exception. And this is not from an arrogant perspective; this is just how I make things turn out with what I attempt. I'm confident about it.
I'd go to school out of NYC, and possibly even work out of NYC, but my family is here, so that make COL better.
Everyone who goes to Fordham has some degree of success. That is why their median GPA is over 3.5 and median LSAT is over the 90th percentile. For every person top 10%, there is another bottom 10%, same for 25%, 33%, etc. It is good to be confident. I think I will be top 25% wherever I attend. But that's the thing, everyone thinks that. And betting that amount of money on it is probably not a great idea.
The point was to increase sample size, which is why I ranged from 169-171, then again, you could always retake, and next cycle you could apply ED if you wanted to.
I can't retake. I took it 3 times. And the 171 makes the difference, because it surpasses 170.
