Where should I apply?/What are my chances?(173 & 3.86)

Postby Three.Hole.Punch.Jim » Sun Oct 15, 2017 8:44 pm

I graduated from a small liberal arts college in 2016 with a Chemistry and Political Science major and a 3.86 GPA. During my senior year of college I took the LSAT and scored a 157. I took the LSAT again this September and scored a 173. Will this be a turn off to some schools? Will admissions look at my major in determining why my GPA may be a little bit lower than their medians? I am a female if that helps me at all in the process. I just want to know my chances of T14 and what I should expect. Thanks for any help/advice!

Your numbers are great and should net you significant scholarships from CCN on down. Stop panicking and start sending apps in.

As others have said, apply to the entire T-13. You will have great scholarship offers, probably snag H, and maybe Y or S if you have something else noteworthy.
