167/3.26 My chances?

Postby futuristic rama » Sun Jan 03, 2010 7:31 pm

Hello,
my lsat is 167 from September, did a little bit worse in December, 165.
GPA in liberal arts.
Not many law related softs, except work and immigrant background.

Schools:
U Illinois
U Indiana
Cornell
BU
BC
Fordham
Yeshiva
George Washington
American
Irvine


By, the way will schools look negatively if I take LSAT for a third time in a row. My December score was way way below my PT's (mid 170's). I feel maybe if i do a little bit better I can get off waitlists.

Thank you

I just love this game.

U Illinois- IN
U Indiana- If you call them U Indiana in your PS, probably WL; otherwise IN [Update: forget it, they'll take you even if you call them Jessica]
Cornell- WL/OUT
BU- IN
BC- IN
Fordham- WL/IN
Yeshiva- IN
George Washington- WL/IN
American- IN
Irvine- IN

Thanks, so overall you think i am on the safe side. Will schools look negatively at a third Lsat in a row by the way, I feel horrible because of the difference between my practice test and results. I know i did similarly in September, and so this might seem stupid to a lot of people, but that was without studying since I had hectic work schedule.

I apologize for bumping this thread. But does anyone know how schools feel about three lsat's in a row. Do they see it negatively. I am almost addicted on the LSAT, well, not really, but I am kind of shell shocked and disappointed with December.

Well, most schools say they take variance (and the higher score) on up to 3 scores. Some specifically mention that a 4th LSAT just makes the waters look muddy.

Don't be disappointed, 167 is great, and your 165 in December won't hurt you or require an addendum.

I also don't think you are being safe, but instead are being realistic. At your GPA, a 167 is a longshot at the T14, but pretty good everywhere else. I mean, there's no harm in throwing apps to schools where you are at the 25ths either, but you actually just have a really good list where your apps make sense.

FWIW I have a 168/3.23 and so far I have:

U Illinois - in 20/year
Cornell - held to regular decision
BC - rejection
Fordham - waitlisted

does not bode well for my 167/3.4....
