So it's okay to snicker when we're being lectured on the model penal code?


I think our prof took all the fun out by just using the term MPC... We would have been exhausted from snickering anyway, as he luuuuurrrrved that ol' MPC...

GPA 3.55, LSAT?

Postby Scallywaggums » Sun May 09, 2010 7:57 pm

Sorry, I know I'm crashing a thread I don't belong on, but I'm taking the LSAT in June & Cornell is my #1.
Applications soared 50% & I don't know how much (if any) that will affect their LSAT/GPA stats.

Are any of you non-URM with a gpa close to 3.55?
If so, please, what was your LSAT score?

I'm obviously the most curious about lower scores.
I'm probably going to hit 168-170, but a 166 is certainly possible.

Hope to be joining you in '11.

Good luck.

I had a 3.6 and a 171 and I got in. I would say you got a good shot if you break 170 and a solid shot if you hit 168-169. Good luck! Congrats on that retake, 166-175, what changed?

Thanks, I was pretty relieved. My undergrad was on the quarter system, which meant that when I took the June LSAT it was in the middle of finals week. I actually had to scramble to reschedule and get makeup times, but I ended up with a 4 day span that included 10 pages in Italian, 25 in English, 4 exams, and the lsat. And dinos. Oh god the dinos.

When the September one came around I spent the week before taking two tests a day and then got lucky I guess.

Good luck! I had a 3.6 and a 169, and I was in no problem- I'd guess 169-171 would be a pretty damn good shot, though you'd probably still have a chance with lower numbers if you ED'd. You should check lsn to see how people with LSATs in the mid 160s and your GPA fared this year to get a better idea.

Nice, I was doing study abroad so I would've only had 2 weeks to study for the June LSAT after finals so I decided to pass on June and go September or bust. That's crazy taking it during finals. Oh and I took the June test the night before my real test and I got owned by the dinos also among other things.

Thanks! Yeah I actually have looked at lsn, http://cornell.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats
in the 3.5-3.6 range:
only 1 out of 5 got in with a 168 (and that one had rockin' softs)
whereas 3 out of 3 got in with a 169
but then 2 out of 3 were waitlisted with a 171... ???

I was posting here in hopes that I could increase the sample size (so, I should have added this caveat earlier: PLEASE DISREGARD THIS POST IF YOU HAVE A PROFILE ON LSN)

I was a little shocked that Berks, Harvard, and Stanford were so highly ranked, as well. Time to show them who's boss!!!

Know that I am responding to an earlier post but 3.53/169 in Early Action (or whatever they call it).

he called it "model penal code" all the time. i think students really used MPC more than him. but, his demeanor i think is what took the humor out
tbf, though, i did snicker the first time he read "Regina" as "RegIna" .. to be rhymed with certain body parts..

Alright, thanks for all the replies, folks. Looks like 169 is my cut-off on the lower end.

If any non-URM with a 3.5-3.6 got a 168 or lower please message me.

Aaaand my interruption comes to an end.

Wow, I'm an idiot. I somehow managed to fill out the hughes applciation for 2009-2010 instead of for the 2010-2011. Luckily, I called today and was informed of my mistake and got the last room available.

Last room available? Crap... I'd better start looking for housing.

You can still be put on a waitlist. The 3L who gave us a tour of Hughes said she was on the waitlist when she applied and got into Hughes... so, i suppose there is still hope!

Hmm, I'm not sure if I'd want to remain uncertain about my housing situation for that long. Oh well. I also applied for Maplewood (grad housing), so hopefully there will be something there.

Seriously, I suggest getting a place in Collegetown.
