I've so far haven't heard anything from the T14 minus this and an interview request from Georgetown. Applied early-January after retaking a 167 October LSAT.
I know this isn't really the forum for this but are these numbers really that bad where the whole T14 is like "um, no thanks"?
Need some TLS wisdom to figure out what is going on trend-wise in this cycle.
I don't think they will all say "ew" to you, lol. Some schools are more splitter/reverse-splitter friendly than others. For example, my friend had a 163 and 3.85 from a top 10. He got into Northwestern
He is not a URM. He's a Caucasian male without any socioeconomic disadvantage (note- that being said, he is paying sticker price).
I do believe that a moving personal statement, great softs, and/or having a specific "hard" major (such as premed, engineering, physics, etc) can make a difference at some T14s. Flipping through LSN, a female chemical engineering major from a top 20 school w/a 3.2 GPA, 165 LSAT, and strong softs made it into Berkeley and a 2 other T14 schools. There are a few others like her from this cycle. She stated that in her case, her major and softs likely made the difference.
Do you feel you have a particularly moving statement or strong softs?
