Question about a splitter

Postby arkgawilson » Wed May 20, 2015 1:56 am

Hi,
I really appreciate any feedback I can get about being a potential splitter. Potential because I am still planning to retake the LSAT in October, and hope to get in the Mid 160's (that's what I've been practicing at regularly). My undergrad LSAC gpa is 3.50, and I have attended a doctoral program but left before completing the whole degree, graduate gpa is 4.0 though (PsyD- Clinical Psychology).

I'm wondering if any of the top T2's would accept a 3.5 LSAT 165, let alone get some decent scholarship money. Although I didn't get on TLS in my doctoral program much, I review the forums and at least know enough to know that I don't need to go to a school unless I get funding, or go to a reasonable number program so I can get a decent paying job after graduation for my loans.

Specifically curious about Vandy, ASU, and Emory. Thank you in advance!

Check out mylsn.info for acceptance and money chances. Your GPA is good enough that with a few more LSAT points you'd probably be sitting pretty well off. I'd retake and shoot for 170+.

Would that put me in a good enough position for say Vandy, or long shot, Duke or Georgetown? I'm also gay, so I don't know if that adds anything for any program.

You should get lower T14 with $$ with a 3.5/170+ and that could put you in NW ED range (full tuition)

LGBT status in and of itself will provide no boost, if you can write a good personal statement about it it then that might help a little but your numbers are going to determine your admissions outcome

I would LOVE to go to NW. The doctoral program I was in was in Chicago, and I actually took my first LSAT test at Northwestern. But if I did their ED program is what you're saying. Is that possible if you will be using the score from the Oct 2015 LSAT?
