3.45 GPA 152 cold > 164 july > retake in Sept.

Postby subtle_pun » Tue Sep 04, 2018 8:40 pm

So here's the deal - I'm a female structural engineer with 5 years work experience and two masters degrees. My dual undergrad and masters was completed simultaneously; my cumulative GPA is 3.45. I obtained a second masters abroad in Historic Preservation of Structures.

I took the LSAT cold last September and got a 152. I took it again in July and got a 164. I am planning on taking it again in September - I've been consistently PTing in the low 170's.

My ideal school is UPenn. If I can achieve my PT average of 170, is this a realistic goal? Is my GPA too low or will work experience and background counteract that?

Any thoughts?

It is doable, but the odds are not stacked in your favor.
