So, as I've indicated, I am in the middle of the application process. If you wanna know my stats, here they are:
- I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a degree in Government & Politics;
- My cumulative undergraduate GPA was a 3.502. I'm not entirely sure what my major GPA was, but I got mostly As and Bs in my GVPT classes, with more As than Bs;
- My LSAT score was a 167, placing me in the 94th percentile, and lastly;
- I am waiting on recommendations from three professors and another from my old supervisor
Just to be clear, I've already submitted my applications, so you don't have to tell me about meeting any deadlines. However, the question that is on my mind is: now that I've submitted my applications, what are the chances of me actually getting into the schools I've applied to?
I've applied to a lot of schools. A whopping 22 in total. Some top-tier, some lower tier, some in the middle. But instead of by rank, I'm gonna break them down by my personal preference. You ready? Okay.....
My first choices that I might have a shot of getting into, God willing:
- UT Austin
The schools that are almost first choices that I might actually choose over those already listed, if accepted:
- Wash U in St. Louis
- University of Southern California
My "what the hell" schools - I probably won't get in, but still tossed my hat in the ring, and would be more than happy to go if I did, by some miracle, get accepted:
My "middle tiers" who are good targets given my stats:
- Notre Dame
- University of Washington
- Boston University
- American University
- Arizona State University
Really sorry for the long post, but I just needed to write it all out. So, where do you think I can get in, given my stats?
