I'm sure we can point to some random examples of people with LSAT's that low getting into top 20 schools but it's extremely unlikely and you should not count on it. Even a 155 would be better than a 150 (but not by much).

You will open up many doors for yourself if you can get that score closer to a 165. Please consider getting a tutor or devoting serious time to self-study and get that score over a 160.

What Asian URM are you? I know Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian etc don't count as URMs.


Thanks I will take your advices. I don't have money to get tutor, but I will self-study.
And I am half Korean half Chinese.

half krn, half chinese does not equal URM.

ITE, with all due respect, I would look elsewhere if I were you.

That depends...

What, exactly, are you hoping for? And which Asian URM are you? Chinese, Korean and Japanese are not considered URM's, as you probably know. If you are Filipino or Cambodian (etc) you're as good as Black!

In that case, you may be able to get into a top-40 or so, but if you want top-20, you'll want to get over 157, and for T14 you'll want to get over 160. There are URM's walking around Harvard with 155-159, but their GPA's are 165+ (which you also have), their soft factors are really strong and their majors were tough.

If you can get that score to 160, you have action at just about any school.

Don't know how accurate DeLoggio Admissions are, but here is a quote:

"Only 68% of Asians are accepted, even though their median gpa and LSAT are higher than those for Caucasians. Comparing individual grid boxes (e.g., 3.25-3.49, 160-164), Asians are accepted in lower percentages than their white peers in virtually every box at or above the national medians."

Negative bump?

If only I could find someone to turn me into an AA lesbian from the South America (for ESL kicker)...

But alas... I'm stuck with skin that looks like rubber cement... and no bump...

I know how you feel jin...

Asians are not considered URM's so you need numbers that anyone else would need. And your numbers are FAR from getting into even top 50 schools.

Can we resurrect it to see if the guy failed out of his T20 yet?

If I were hitting 150 LSATs and ESL, I might think twice about going toe-to-toe with 170+ LSATs who have grown up speaking American English. [Insert bottom of class at top20 still being OK argument here], but I'd love to hear if the guy made it in and where he ended up in his class rank.
