GPA 3.94 with an electrical engineering degree
Full tuition scholarship for undergraduate
Engineering internship for two summers
Tutored throughout school year for all three academic years.
Lots of leadership with student organizations
Letters of recommendation are from engineering professors.
I was wondering about my chances at any of the top 20 schools. My focus is intellectual property.
What worries me is that my entire background is all in engineering and my LSAT score is low.
I would be applying to the joint degree program to those that offer an EE masters/JD if that changes anything.
Retake, get a 165, and the world is your oyster! That's an exaggeration. But you can definitely break into the top 20 if you raise your LSAT 5 points.
also, don't worry about the engineering thing holding you back.
