Current Teach For America Corps Member / 3.7 UG GPA

Postby TFALaw » Tue Apr 20, 2010 1:12 pm

I'm a current TFA corps member and have a 3.7 UG GPA from a top university... I will be taking the LSAT this summer. What score should I be looking for to have a shot at the top 5 law schools? Obviously I will be trying to get the highest score possible (170+), but I am just trying to get an idea. Thanks!

Yale is out
Harvard 176
Stanford 176ish but its a small chance no matter what.
Columbia 171 has a slim chance, but 172
NYU 171
Chi 171/172

First, thank you for serving as a CM!

I'm a learning team leader and have taught in my placement school for the last 3 years and am currently applying to law school also. I think TFA is a good soft, and I wrote about my experience heavily and heard from multiple deans that they were impressed with the statement and thanked me for doing TFA.

I applied to 14 schools with a 3.66 uGpa from Syracuse, and a 169 (2nd take). I have 4 acceptances, 5 rejections, and 5 waitlists. Right now it looks like I will be attending Fordham with a 10k/yr scholarship unless I get into Columbia.

I think TFA is a good soft, but I got into all the schools my numbers say I should have gotten into and I have been rejected or waitlisted at all of the reaches. If you want more details feel free to PM me and I can give you the full list (I'd rather not post here) and help you with your PS.

Good luck!
