165 minimum I think. Depends on what you call decent. If decent means fully then you'll want 169+.


With 3.9 you should wait until you can consistently get 172+ and you'll be rolin in $/crimson


What do you think about a bit of a lower GPA, like 3.75 area?

My GPA is around that and I always beat myself up for not getting higher. If I didn't waste my time with accounting I'd have a 3.9+.

Whatever, at 3.7-3.9, the difference seems minimal, and LSAT is what really determines what you get.

I would slap a lot of people for a 3.6+ because if I get what I'm PTing, full schollys aren't out of the question. I pretty much need a 177+ in June and be the first to apply to even have my name looked at for 3/4 or full at the T14.

Could you take ez pz community college classes during the summer to inflate it? Or do you have too many credits for it to matter.

I plan on doing that and make them sort of maybe count for necessary credits I need to satisfy so it doesn't look sus (also I went there b4)

Graduated in May lol, too late for that; but I did do the unnecessary credit scheme in my senior year, took like 20 credits and got up to mid 3.4. The only thing I have in my defense is that physics, orgo ii, and calc iii are the only things that kept me from 3.6+ so maybe they'll be kind to me.

Those were all classes I didn't take so maybe, I think they do if your major is STEM (i chose not do that so I could salvage my GPA).

Maybe I'm naive but, I think most will be good according to LSN with a GREAT LSAT and >3.0 GPA

Yeah, my GPA for undergrad is 3.76. Really regretting that sign language course I stupidly didn't take seriously enough and got a C+ for.

Hoping to up my chances by getting first class honours this year.

was joke comrade

mine was also an 8er. it was a cc class too.

although, if i did well in it, i would prob have become an accountant so i guess it wasnt a total waste. my chances of ed at NU are looking pretty good as long as I get a 170-174. their arent many with my stats and ed on mylsn but theyve all made it so

Bummer. My econ grades killed me since I took shit like econometrics, time-series, and forecasting when I was a sophmore. My poli sci gpa is a 3.9. Had I known I had no chance of being an economist or doing econ consulting, I would have just majored in political science and studied on my own lol.

i think wiht your stats you could have a really good cycle if you play the field a bit. this cycle is a bit haywire and if you submit early in sept you could have some good results. 173 would put you over every schools median and 25th GPA (at least)

I might blanket T14 assuming a good LSAT this year, than if that's not satisfactory do the ed at NU the next cycle.

Do they take your major GPA into account?

That would be the dream because mine is a 4.0

Since you all are talking about GPA's and all, do you know if there is a site where you can input all your grades to see what your LSAC UG gpa would be? I'm curious..

i can dream but the chances of the scholarship war are miniscule; idk tho I'll have lots of relevant WE so maybe they'll like that.

IIRC WE only helps with someone with similar stats. I asked around and even for NU which plasters how important WE is on their front page it's still pretty minimal.

It's like all the other softs, unless you worked at the T14 or something.
