Splitter(ish) - prediction help?

Postby lmarie81 » Sat Apr 17, 2010 5:15 am

So I have a 2.2 LSAC GPA and 160 LSAT. There are some extenuating circumstances behind that (family health issues and others) so I wrote an addendum for that as well as a bit of a walk through GPA addendum as the transcripts are a roller coaster ride.

I have applied to the following:
T2: (or was at the time)
Denver
Houston
Las Vegas
St. Louis (now T3)
Louisville (now T3)
DePaul

T3:
Nebraska (now T2) - Pending/Hold
Creighton - Pending/Hold

Thoughts, predictions? I have a couple of years of work experience since graduation but left that to the resume - perhaps I should have focused on this more in my personal statement (went the overcoming challenges route)?

I'm going a bit crazy waiting to hear back and am second guessing myself. Do I get a higher LSAT and try again? (I was testing 167 at home so am confident I can boost it.) Anyone have any experiences with these schools? I tried to be realistic and stay away from top 50.

As an aside, I did my undergrad at ASU (which predictably rejected).

retake and get 170+. 160 isn't really high enough to be a splitter.

You should retake. I had a 170/2.22 (long story but it is what it is, also 6 years WE). I was basically only accepted at schools where my LSAT was well above median, I got some money from some of the schools where I was about 5 points above the 75th%, but I had just one tier1 acceptance. I can't imagine how badly it would have gone if I had a 160.

100% re-take. I'm sitting on a 2.6x and I'm not applying to law schools unless I hit 170+ in June. It just isn't worth it ITE.

if OP actually prepped to get to a 160, a 170 is strongly unlikely...

I can get 170 - I get perfect scores on my answers till time is tight so I just need to get faster, so I am pretty confident there. Thanks all for the advice!
