Looking at Chicago (ED), Berkeley, H/Y/S...

Chances?


With that rank, you should probably forego the ED option and see if you can snag HYS if you repeat.

Ranked 10 out of 245ish (top 5%) at a T80-90. VA resident and UVA undergrad. LSAT 162, UGPA 3.1. Chances for UVA? Other T14s? I've already got 2 good letters of recommendation from first semester profs

Off the cuff but I'd say very good for all of the above. 3.955 means you've got to be #1 or close to it. Definitely in at one of the CCN, I'd say shoot for H (simply because Y and S admit so few transfers).

My speculations for the folks who've been ignored:

Sav wrote:Ranked between top 10-20% at Berkeley (H, H, HH). What chances transferring to SLS? UCB gives only rank bands.


I suspect that if you can claw your way into top 5% you'll have a solid chance. Top 10-20%, I'm not sure, but I suspect it's a coin toss--and probably even a slightly lower. But I'm just speculating given that SLS accepts so few transfers. This is one of those circumstances where prior WE and other softs or compelling reasons to be at SLS v. UCB may make a not-insignificant difference.

You have a good shot at UVA. If you can maintain or (obviously) improve your standing, I'd give you better than 50/50. It's pretty well known in the transfer game that UVA prefers residents. The UVA undergrad obviously helps.

It doesn't really. Though being number 1 would be helpful for HYS, for Chicago ED, you're a strong candidate.

I'd be more comfortable saying you're a good candidate for Texas if they didn't take so few transfers. Your residency obviously helps, but any specific reasons for being in Austin in particular? If you get your rank up to, say, top 15%, I think you'd be a competitive candidate at all of those schools. Put in an EA app at GULC; they may bite, and I think it'd be worth it.

Coin toss at SLS

Nice job. Keep it up.

I'm honestly not sure. But I feel like if you maintain your GPA and improve *slightly*, you'd have a good shot at USD. I'm thinking softs and compelling geographic reasons here would be helpful. As for USC/UCLA, you'd probably need to at least break into the top 5%.

Hello all, new to the board. The info on this forum is incredibly helpful. I guess I'll throw my hat into the ring.

School is in the 59-64 range
3.6 GPA
7-8%
165 LSAT
1 CALI in the Fall

I'm looking to get back into the Chicago area for various reasons. I'm really hoping for Northwestern, do I have a decent shot?

Please evaluate my chances.

My current school's rank: 19 (UMinn/WUSTL)
Percentile ranking: 15th-20th %ile
A little bit of decent work experience (took a gap year after college to work)
No ties to any specific location and I'm willing to work at any major city (NYC, DC, Chicago, LA, SF, etc.)

I want to apply to all T7-T14 schools:

Penn
UVA
Berkeley
Michigan
Duke
NU
Cornell
GULC

I'm especially interested in Berkeley, Michigan, and NU.

Don't apply to UVA unless you're from VA. No sense wasting the application money.

Are you at a CA T4? I'd be really surprised if you didn't get into USD.

Not sure about UCLA/USC, though. They seem to want more of a top 5% or better from T3/T4s.

For now, focus on studying/preparing for exams. You can play the "what if" game all day and get nowhere in the end.

Less than a coin toss. Lower t14 maybe, but CCN, you'd probably need top 5% for a 50/50 shot.

My gut says you have a solid shot B (better with CA ties). Maybe 50/50 at HS (which are great odds, IMO). And slightly less for Y. All definitely worth an application.

Yes, I'm at a CA T4. Thanks for the replies, I will apply to USD and LMU, and UCLA/USC if my grades get better.
