170 / 3.5

Postby kelllseya » Tue Jan 26, 2010 6:52 pm

What are my chances of getting into Georgetown?

I have a 3.5 and 170 LSAT. My GPA started low and was over a 3.7 for my last 4 semesters. I played D1 soccer which was mostly the reason for the low GPA in the beginning.

At this point in the cycle, not good. I'd suggest applying ED to UVA. They may still want some 170 LSATs.

GTown dropped their ED deadline as well. If you'd rather go there than UVA, pursuing that route would be a better bet than RD. Either way, I'd go ED ==> UVA, and I'd do it now. If dinged/Wled, ED ==> GTown.

Kelly...

I am in the exactly same boat as you.

3.5/170, D1 lacrosse.

I'm applying ED to UVA this fall. My advice would be to wait until this fall, but that's just me... Good luck

I bet Georgetown takes you. Those are good numbers for G-Town and I think being a D1 athlete is a good soft -- it's a big time commitment, which I think adcomms will recognize and help to mitigate your lowish GPA.
