3.41/171 USC undergrad

Postby jlean » Tue Dec 29, 2009 1:36 am

Tidbits:
Downward trend in grades... :(
Mathematics/Economics Major
Very active member of my fraternity including being the head of the judicial board
Applying between Jan 2 - Jan 5

School List-
Number 1: UCLA

Reaches:
-Berkeley
-Stanford
-UCLA
-Georgetown

Targets:
-Northwestern
-USC

Safeties:
-USD
-Loyola (LMU)
-Utah


Any advice/chances would be great, I have been looking around the blogs and have found similar numbers but with my selection of schools. I have spent months (as has everyone on my PS) and feel good about it. My LORs are good but I don't think will necessarily blow anyone away.
Thanks and Fight On!

Berkeley and Stanford- almost definitely out.
UCLA and USC- favor higher GPAs so WL/ in
Northwestern- out without work experience.
Georgetown- WL/in
Safeties- in

Apply to some different schools in the T20 that don't favor high GPAs as much.

Thank You very much for your input... if you, or anyone else, has any advice on T20 schools to apply to that favor LSAT over GPA that would help me out a lot.

Add ND and Illinois, also WUSTL. WUSTL will give you $$$$ for that LSAT score, if you're not too late in the cycle.
