164/3.77 : Chances at several schools?

Postby roxyoresox » Tue Dec 29, 2009 12:36 am

Hi everyone,

Just got back my December LSAT. It wasn't as good as I would have liked, but anyway I have a list of schools I'm thinking of applying to. What are my chances at them, and are there any other similar schools I should perhaps add to the list? I'm trying to limit myself to primarily urban and eastern schools.

Undergrad GPA: 3.77
Majoring in Economics, Chinese from WUSTL.
No important soft factors I can think of. I've been in a few school organizations that don't do much.
LSAT: 158 first time, 164 second.

Schools:
Boston University
Boston College
Fordham
Georgetown
GWU
George Mason
American
WUSTL

I'm a little insecure with my LSAT as it seems to be at the median or below for many of the schools up there, so if anyone can provide some extra info I'm not aware of, that would be great.

Thanks!

So for WUSTL does me being a (soon to be) undergraduate alumnus carry any weight?

Yes, it'd help you get a spot on the waitlist

Depends on the school. As for WUSTL, the benefit is marginal at best.

Boston University W/L - IN (with effort)
Boston College W/L - IN (with effort)
Fordham W/L (I remembering seeing a lot of folks with similar #'s, but no ties to NYC not getting the nod last cycle)
Georgetown OUT
GWU W/L - IN (with effort ... make sure that you don't exceed the 500 word PS limit)
George Mason - IN
American - IN
WUSTL - W/L - IN

With respect to GT, even if you did apply PT, unless you have a couple years of WE or certain ties to the DC area implying a need to attend PT, then you are likely still out of luck!

What do you mean by "with effort", besides adhering to word limits?

Once W/L ... in reference to follow-up efforts, etc ...
