Nope, I'm Indian, but I doubt that counts for much. I'm from an "economically disadvantaged" family, if that means anything.

You'll need a 170+ for Georgetown and NYU.

Not really. Georgetown if you feel REALLY lucky, but not NYU.

I honestly believe that if the OP were a resident of Texas, had served in the military for 4 years, and completed college thereafter (or vice-versa), he would stand a reasonable chance to be admitted at UT. However, seeing that his screen name is tx1987, I am led to believe that he is graduating college in 2010.

Don't waste your money, IMHO.

Maybe if you had a 167-168, you'd have a slight, outside shot. But with a 162, you're an auto-ding. Look at the LSN graphs.

With your numbers, your reaches would be Indiana-Bloomington, Iowa, William and Mary, and maybe BU, BC and GW (real longshots).

Your targets would be in the T30-T55 range.

I'll let you know if this scenario holds true with 8 years vs 4 and strong military experience vs just doing time. :D

If you really want Georgetown, change your application to part time only and you might have a shot.

retake the lsat and apply next cycle (early next cycle). dont let the gpa go to waste on a lsat under 165. good luck.

NYU averages LSATs too (or so they claim), so even if you have a stellar re-take, don't get your hopes up. A 170 will put you in good contention for Georgetown, and high 160s make it possible but not probable.

I believe they only average if the difference is fewer than 6 points.
