This makes sense, but at the same time, the only weak considers I have on LSP are Stanford and Michigan…but I consider the entire T14 a reach because of my LSAT (164/3.95 non-URM).

People on here were like omg you have noooo chance at Boalt but it’s a “consider” on LSP for me. But if I got into Boalt, I’d post on here lol


There is always a chance---though at Boalt unless you have something AMAZING (former mayor, doctor, peace corps, and legacy) you are prolly at about a 1% chance....still worth a shot though if thats your dream.


You're crazy. 3.95 with the URM boost has a good chance of counterbalancing the low LSAT, especially with a decent PS/LORs. Boalt's 25% is only 163. >75% GPA + >25% LSAT + URM=admit.

Weak consider on LSP & in at Boalt. Let this double as my youcandoit/imadeitintomyreach post.

(Had hesitated to write anything before because I've been celebrating all over LSN. Seriously though, so psyched.)

In at Penn ED.

3.94/166/non-URM/average softs.

The only two differentiating factors: I wrote a very unique PS/have a very unique reason for wanting to go to law school, and my father is an alum of both the UG and the law school (but I reckon this was a tiebreaker, not the prevailing reason).

In at MICHIGAN ED!!!!

No exceptional softs/we, straight our of UG

Even with the URM box checked Mich was a weak consider, I'm so excited!


Congrats!! Buy a huge down coat, start following Rich Rod and Jim Harbaugh idolizing Lloyd Carr, Bo Schembechler and calling Denard Robinson 'shoelace' and you'll be all set for Ann Arbor :)

GPA is impressive. LSAT could be better but not bad. Overall not a bad package in my eyes. Didn't want to downplay his/her academic accomplishments.

Thanks for downplaying my acceptance. Legacy isn't as important at Penn as one would think.

But haters gonna hate.

I know how impressive a 3.94 is. There is also nothing wrong with being a legacy. Many of us will have legacy children one day, and I would love to hear any of you will tell them not to put you on their app.

This isn't a confidence issue; I know my stats are low for the T14, and I'm fine with that. What I'm not fine with are rude, unnecessary comments like Sophia's. This is the "reach" thread for God's sake. I didn't post here to show off my numbers, just my good fortune.

no i know. she has like a 176 or something, i think. just because her stats are "impressive" doesn't mean everyone else's are not, and this is not the “hey look at my stats they’re so impressive I can get in anywhere” thread. so she needs to stfu or gtfo.

There isn't a need to hate on anyone with a 176. If I had a 176 I wouldn't care about where you mugs get in. No offense :mrgreen:

I would never hate on a human being who got a 176.
