I haven't read through all the pages, but I want to know the odds of retakes for people with my score and the following link to a pdf isn't working for me.... anyone know how to find it?

"Finally, if you want LSAC data on how students with your LSAT score have fared on a retake, check page 20 of this PDF

(also a source of much valuable information about the LSAT, how your GPA is calculated, etc.):
http://www.lsac.org/pdfs/2007-2008/Info ... 007web.pdf"

compared to LSN, it isn't accurate at all for me. I'm a mid-number splitter (3.1/163) and it seems like it gives me denies at places I have a shot, and "consider" at places I don't, again-when compared to LSN.

its a good starting point for a lot of people to see what school ranges to look at, but then you should dig deeper and look at applicants on LSN to see how people actually did

agreed. I think LSP is better for people who aren't splitters at all. Like for me, LSP says I won't get into Tennessee... but according to LSN it should be a pretty solid acceptance. I trust LSN more because it's actual applicants/data (assuming people don't lie) and LSP is more of plugging into a formula that has been made.

If you clowns need to ask on a website like this what your chances are - you should probably go back to flipping burgers.... :?

It depends. For me, based on the statistics, I was supposed to be an automatic reject at some of the schools I got accepted to but I got in. Soft factors help a lot!!!!

LSAT: 162
GPA: 3.75 from liberal arts college

Experience as a grassroots community organizer, and now as a legal assistant.

Spanish speaking (second language) - does this help?

Chances at:

BU, Vanderbilt, University of Washington, GW, Fordham

My score is lower but the GPA is higher and I am wondering if this will help at all??

Thank you!

You have a good GPA, so you should prob retake and up your LSAT a little more. From the knowledge I have gathered, a high LSAT score is much more valuable than a high GPA.


On LSP you're at consider for GW/Wash/Fordham so who knows! Vandy and BU are probably a no. It seems that for schools of this caliber a 165+ is definitly the way to go. Maybe even higher.

Hmm, ok, here goes...

LSAT: 167
GPA: 3.53 (should go up slightly after fall semester, I graduate in Dec)
Softs: I really don't know what law schools consider 'good' softs, but I worked 40+ hours a week the entire time of my undergrad in Escrow, Management, and another unique field.
BA in finance, minor in theatre. State school.

I KNOW some of these are long shots, but I figured I'd give my extensive list, and then trim down. I have fee waivers for the ones with + signs, so I figure I'll apply there either way...

Also, if there are any suggestions for places I might be a good fit with my numbers, I'd appreciate them :)

Cornell
USC
Minnesota+
Northwestern
William and Mary+
Vanderbilt
Lewis and Clark+
U of Utah+
George Washington+
Cincinnati+
Seton Hall+
U of Richmond+
USC
Arizona State
U of Arizona
UC Hastings

Interesting, I never thought about it that way, and it's a completely new idea to me.
The scenario you talk about seems kind of sectarian to me, with people only getting their information only from the sources that reflect their own views.

Haven't yet been through the cycle so I don't personally know, but I would add a couple more safeties if I were you. OSU is the only school on that list that I would say you're very likely to be accepted.
