LSDAS UGPA 3.2 from top 20 school, 174 LSAT

Postby lawhopeful210 » Fri Jun 12, 2015 6:09 pm

Hi guys,

I'm looking to apply to T14 in the next cycle. I am going to be a senior at a top 20 undergrad institution. My GPA is not amazing--will be around 3.2 at the time of applying. I scored a 174 on my practice LSAT though. If I can get similar on the real thing--do I have chances at Cornell, Georgetown, Northwestern? I have internship experience on Capitol Hill and a law firm. What if I apply Early decision at one of those schools? I'm just wondering if it makes sense for me to apply the next cycle, or work for a couple years and discount my GPA a little bit. I should also note there is a significant upward trend on my GPA. I got a 2.5 freshman year (I was premed) and have been getting 3.3-3.4 since then. Finally, does undergrad institution help? Mine is known for NOT having grade inflation, the opposite actually.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Don't ED. You'll definitely get T14 bites.

Don't ED

They won't care whether your undergrad inflates or deflates just the number
