They actually look at this?!!! :D

The Top 3 schools are more reticent to accept KJDs. Harvard is the friendliest KJD T3 school.


A baller GPA and LSAT all but ensures a Harvard acceptance.

Hell, there was a 180, 3.5 ENGINEER (thereby justifying the lower than usual GPA) who was rejected by Yale and Stanford.

What? That sucks.

Real recognize real. I see you dawg


Yeah. That feel when you're a 3.5 and a 3.7~ is the median GPA or higher at every single T14 school.


That feel when people think 3.5 is a bad GPA.


Yeah seriously. Try battling your way back after a 2.2 GPA for the first two years of college (which was admittedly a consequence of excess drinking/partying, immaturity, and extreme entitlement). Any hopes of getting into a law school worth going to entirely hinges on this test. So, ugh, anyone else have a severe case of stomach ulcers?

I made a video for you guys. I can't post it so that it's visible in the forum, but it should be good for a laugh.

Honestly, it's not bad. Those users who get rejected by the T3 because of GPA still get baller scholarship offers. Some of them got Hamilton/Dillard/NYU's full scholarship.

Not sure where you're applying but interview at WUSTL is mandatory

I know for a fact that Harvard and Chicago interview. If you have unusually high numbers for them, Cornell and Georgetown do some type of interview. UVA calls people on the phone, but I don't think they have a formal interview process.

There is purportedly a student who ended up with a 2.9 but "aced" the LSAT (assuming 175+) who got into NU.

What does it take to get into these schools? I mean honestly. A family friend recently scored a perfect score on the ACT, had a 4.3 at some local prestigious magnet school (but it wasn't an over-the-top boarding school in the northeast seaboard area), a plethora of strong softs but she was denied from Duke undergrad, wait listed at Harvard, and denied from Brown (or maybe Dartmouth? Idk I forget). The only thing she could come up with was that she didn't play a sport throughout high school. It's somewhat ridiculous.

She didn't package herself correctly. Those schools are trying to build a diverse class, and in recently released adcom files, the readers assign a role to applicants (such as she will be a great writer for the school paper, etc). So students who get into those schools do a good job at profiling themselves for the school and the roles that they want.
