3.2/332 GRE, chances at UVA/Georgetown/Columbia JD?

Postby lawhopeful210 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:49 pm

I graduated from top 20 undergrad in 2016, 2 years of full-time work experience at top consulting firm, want to go into law/masters program. Scored 332 on GRE (96th percentile). Low UGPA 3.2 but very strong upward trend once changed majors. Do I have a chance at UVA, Georgetown, or Columbia (these schools all accept GRE for JD program)? My work experience is also directly related to what I want to use law degree for (not sure if that helps at all).

Unless there's evidence that schools are treating the GRE more favorably than the LSAT, it's unlikely. GT would be your best shot, but even then it's still a stretch. Equivalent percentile on the LSAT is 168-9 and that's not enough to compensate for the GPA within the T-14.

What about ED to UVA then Georgetown if uva doesn’t work out? I understand the financial risks but will that increase chances? I’m interested in government/PI FYI

Maybe. The sample size is tiny, so who knows. You'd almost certainly be paying sticker - that's going to be over $250k in loans.
