Cornell Applicants Numbers

Postby bballfreak56 » Tue Feb 16, 2010 10:35 pm

If I have a 3.2 GPA what would I need on an LSAT to get into Cornell? Im not at a well known college but really love Cornell, Fordham and BC as well as BU. What should I aim for on the LSAT to get in?

170+ for all if you want to be safe.

According to LSN, the lowest LSAT that will put you at 'Strong Consider' is 173. Looking at Cornell's LSN graph, there's been one person with a 170/3.2 admitted - but that person is URM.

As for Fordham/BC/BU it looks like a 170 would do it. If you can't break 170, you might want to try for PT at Fordham.

with a 3.2 you'd have to get at least a 170. even then you'd only have a 50/50 shot.

You can try any of the prediction websites (http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com, http://www.hourumd.com/, etc) or use yelgnit's Cornell formula he derived: 212.1 - 1.1 * GPA * ( 14.63 - GPA), round up to get your target LSAT for 'nell.

Cornell doesn't dip that low for GPAs, so you have an uphill climb with a 3.2. I'd aim for a 170+ to have a shot.
