4.08 LSAC GPA... LSAT Goal for T13 Full Ride?

Postby Morpheus » Thu Jan 11, 2018 1:50 pm

I obviously want to do as well as I can on the LSAT, but what should I be shooting for MINIMUM if I want to get $$$ from a T13 with my GPA? Could a 167 do the trick at Cornell?

This is a silly question. Its not like you are sitting down for an lsat and are like "wow, just got 97 percentile, guess I can stop now and take my 167 to the bank!"

Just study and do as well as possible. Aim for a 180.

To answer your question, no a 167 would not get you a full ride at a T13.

But as mentioned above, you should be aiming for the highest score you can possibly get with your GPA so that you can get better offers across the board.

I don't think 167 even gets you to Cornell's 75th percentile. So that would be a maybe good money but certainly not a guarantee of a full-ride.

MyLSN doesn't think you're getting a full ride anywhere in the T-13. Given the test is learnable and you have some academic aptitude given your GPA, you should be aiming higher.

Your LSAT goal should be a 180... focus on studying and not what magic number you're aiming for.
