Since many of the top 14 (or more like T6) schools care more about LSAT and we're often not in their range (I'm below 25% at some of them), we consider our LSAT score to be our weakness. Yes these scores are great, but the top schools in the nation are greater...

Oh my god I love this thread.

Checking in with a 169/4.0X.

In at Penn, UCLA, Vandy, Texas($$$), UGA($$$), Alabama

Waiting on some other T-14s! Nice to have a place to talk and get some actual advice rather than just getting told to retake over and over haha.

Why do you assume RETAKE is not actual advice?


I guess I meant useful advice. If you will not retake the test, just being told to retake is not at all helpful in making a decision as to what law school to attend, etc

YOU GIVE ME HOPE.

It is useful. But I don't think it's unreasonable to attend law school with these semi-splitter numbers. Of course it's dependent on your reasons for going to LS. If you're good with small law/non-prestigious PI, you can get full rides at T20s/30s. Biglaw is also on the table with them, though the better odds you want for it, the more loans you'll have to take out, as money at the T6 looks to be rarely an option.

+1 Sorry about Harvard. Curious about stats. I'm trying to decide if I should throw out an app to Yale too.
