164/3.45 Hard Science/GPA Addendum/URM

Postby nickerson » Sat Jan 02, 2010 4:36 pm

Hey Guys,

Graduating this year from UCLA with a ~3.45 in Biochemistry. Got a 164 in December (really bummed, PT average was ~169.5). Submitting an addendum for the GPA (shitty personal life stuff) and am URM.

Still want to apply this cycle (don't want to take a gap year just to re-study for the LSAT), and have my finger over the submit button.

Would love to go to:
Fordham
BU
BC

Any chance input?

Thanks guys.

Regardless of type of URM, you should be into those 3 schools. You could probably do even a bit better if your URM type is not PR/Mex.

You're kidding! Seriously? Is Ashton about to pop out?

Thanks for the response!

If you look at LSN, I think you could set your sights a bit higher and have a good shot . . . maybe even lower T14

Hey guys,

Ended up submitting here so far:

- Duke
- Penn
- UCLA
- Northeastern (fee waiver)
- Cardozo (fee waiver)
- BC
- BU
- Fordham

Feel like a number of these will probably be rejections. Any sense in casing a wider net an adding in Ann Arbor, maybe Georgetown and GW or something? Starting to feel like maybe only my fee waivers will be admits.

Any advice?

Thanks guys.

Nickerson
