Confused

Postby hihowareyou » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:59 pm

I was gonna start at a T2(80's) this August with a pretty good scholly but decided not to go. I've decided that if I'm gonna go to school in the future it'll be a T20. The thing is I graduated with a 3.1 and have a 162 lsat. Is it even possible to get into a T20, even more is it even worth going.

Sorry dude, even I know that you won't get in there with your scores. You need to hit above the median in at least one category for them to honestly consider you.

You are on the lower quartile for LSAT for the absolute bottom of T20 and you don't make the chart for GPA.

I think if you take a step back and look at the data of people who have been accepted to those schools, and then take a look at your data, you'll find a good fit.

If you truly want to get into some of those baller schools in the T20, study your ass off and hit a higher score on the LSAT. Somewhere around 170. Schools, from the data I've analyzed, seem to care a lot more about LSAT than GPA. You can definitely make up for a subpar GPA with a sufficiently high score.

thanks for the advice, so 170+ should be the target
