You never said how old you are. The older you are, the more non-traditional you are, the further away from traditional review of numbers you get. You may get in to a T10 on the strength of your LSAT alone if you apply early next cycle and bullet proof you application. I know that I've been out of undergrad since 2001, and got into a T30 with a 2.2GPA. I wrote great addendums, and had good reasons for my GPA, but just the same it was a 2.2. So you never know. Good Luck

Though I'm not sure how PT programs will be treated now that they are included in the USNWR rankings.

The latter is also a good point. Esp since I've heard some school have been cutting the size of PT programs as a response.


I think at the very least the days of the PT program being a really easy back door is over. But OP is above one of the medians, and below the other. OP affects their numbers the same as a 169/3.65. So the question becomes, will they let someone that far under 3 into their PT, even if its good for their numbers?

OP might want to consider applying ED to Gtown if they allow that for pt. They've already extended the ED deadline to March1.

I'm 33. My UG took a long time to complete with time off between studies.

They allow it. I applied ED a few weeks ago, and checked the option to be considered for PT and FT.
