Application advice Please help!

Postby 2011L1 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 11:17 pm

RC -usually my weakest section-8 those damn lichens and the last section was a rush the middle 2 were fair
LR -3 It felt pretty good nothing too crazy this one counted also
LR- exp and I knew it so I handled it like my exp -5
LG -1 It was cool I did a perfect job of forecasting the game from previous tests I expected the conditionals were going to reign and looked over it last night
LR -6 I was wore down and I didn't finish last 3 questions and I was unsure about 3 questions.

so total 84 raw which gives me a 166 under Oct scale and I'm hoping this one will be similar or better. I am URM and looking to apply to Fordham, NYU, Columbia, and Yale (long shot). I am in my 30's and I have been successful in my professional career. I have a 3.2 from undergrad 12 years ago. any opinions?

No need for the double post. Given URM status:

3.2/166

GPA is a little low, but nevertheless:

In at Fordham with $$$
50/50 at NYU
25% at Columbia
Out any lower than CCN (In otherwords, Harvard & Yale Out)


With that being said, URM's cycles are wildly unpredictable, you might hit all these schools, you might get dinged at Fordham (probably not though). Rule of thumb is add 8 points to you're LSAT which would be a 174, with a 3.2 you still probably aren't good at NYU or Columbia without ED. However, depending on the URM applicant pool this cycle, you may be good at those two schools. You from NYC?
