165-167/3.95+ from HYP for HLS

Postby Justicia1776 » Tue Jun 11, 2013 1:49 pm

I took the June LSAT and think I got between a 165-167. With above a 3.95 from HYP and some solid work experience/softs, do I have a shot at HLS if I apply right when the app goes live?

No.

I don't think it's realistically possible to go to HLS if you have anything less than a 173.

I mean, they already get tons of people with a 173+ and with GPA as solid as yours.

If you do get a 165-170, I say retake for sure. Your GPA is extremely good, and considering that it came from HYP, that holds even more weight. It'd be a shame for you not to get a 173+ and risk it.

Yale College publishes this: http://ucs.yalecollege.yale.edu/sites/d ... istics.pdf

While the mean accepted Yale College student at HLS has a 173, the mean GPA is a 3.77. So can't .2 higher than the GPA mean compensate for 6 points on the LSAT?

Honestly, I think you probably have a shot, but you would be in way better shape if you just gained a few extra points. If you have a 3.95 from HYP, I'd be really surprised if you couldn't hit low 170s with some studying. Don't waste the hard work that went into that beautiful GPA!

This isn't the right forum for a question like this.

Anyway, are you AA/URM?

Maybe you have a shot, but if you retake and score 170 or above you are probably in. I would be surprised if someone with a 3.95 from HYP couldn't eventually work his/her way up to a 170.

Edit: Domino you read my mind

There are graphs here of % admitted with different LSAT/GPA combos. Self-selected and reported data, so it will be skewed up. However, you can see that the difference is pretty extreme between a 167 and a 173 with your GPA.

(click on admission graphs on the left and then select the school you want to see/the years you want data from)

ETA I'm bad at computers. Link fixed.

Here is something for you.

Even considering HYP, you are likely out.

What are your softs? Did you win an Olympic medal and/or write a bestseller?

As others have said, why not just retake and get a 170+? It should definitely be within your realm of ability, and it all but guarantees your acceptance.

Settling at a 165-169 for HLS is taking a chance that you really don't need to.

Took the LSAT once before and got low 160s. Have done great deal of prep... So, in other words, not too sure a third retake will help.

Shit, bro, I don't know what to tell you.

Come back with your score, though. We can go from there.

That sucks man.

I used Powerscore's Logic Games Bible and really liked it if you haven't tried that yet.

Look into EDing to Chicago or Penn especially if you score sub 167

I hope so. Sending good vibes your way.

Don't waste that GPA.
