Postby cowgirl_bebop » Fri Oct 29, 2010 10:12 pm

Oct. 2010: 167

GPA: LOW!!

Female URM

Schools Im shooting for: St. John's, Fordham, San Diego, U Miami, GW, American, or Santa Clara. Reaches: Cornell

I'm still sure that I can still get into most of those schools, but Im looking for scholarship money or else law school wont happen.

I am a URM, my GPA is 3.44, I got a 160. I really don't want to retake. I think I am going to just try to do my best on my PS and DS and start praying.

im in the same boat as you exact same LSAT score with the same GPA deficiency. What people don't consider enough is the upward trend of your grades, is your GPA weighed down by bad grades in classes you took a long time ago, have your more recent semesters been better? Even if not I think you have a chance at the schools you mentioned, though Cornell which I would have loved to get into as well, probably would have took >170....good luck to you either way~

I'm seriously on the fence. I know the difference.between a 167 and a 170 is significant enough to warrant a retake, but as an extreme splitter I know I need my apps complete as soon as possible. Do you guys think an October 167, December 17x app complete in January is good enough for those schools? Or should I rock with the 167?
