Go away. Or at least find the right forum (where you'll be told you need to go away).

ETA: Ooo, firsties on righteous indignation!

Hi OP, I'd hate to give you a hard time but there really are better resources you can use if you just wanted to get chances.

And honestly it goes without saying that anything close to a 4.0 and above a 172 will get you a shoe in at all T14 schools.

I've tried LSP, myLSN and Hourmud. But the fact that I have pairs of GPA and LSAT makes me wonder which ones will count.


It's the 4.12/174 that will determine your cycle.

Go enter both sets of data, and get back to us on whether there's a significant difference in predictions.

The LSDAS GAP counts- that is why they calculate it.

Schools don't average, despite their incredibly misleading statements to the contrary.

The reason the sample size is small is that few if any people have your stats.

Apply wherever you want but watch out for yield protection wait listing from some schools. Aim high and put together great applications.

One question: are you eligible for student loans in the US. If not, you will.need other means of financing your education. A few schools have institutional loans for foreign.students. Harvard does, not sure about others.

I am not eligible for federal loans. Columbia says international students can apply for some need-based loans.
How are scholarships offered? I am expecting scholarship offers from some schools like UVA and Penn.
Are they simply attached to my offers?


Well there is negotiation involved with scholarships. Usually the acceptance will come first and then the scholarship information. I'm not an expert on this but there are great discussion threads about scholarships here. I know Harvard can give institutional loans and there are private loans if you have US co-signers.

I would apply everywhere and see what happens and then see how the money shakes out. It is a process and you can play schools against each other to get better offers.
