Assuming you are not flame.

Probably in at at most, if not all, if your application is solid. And you should apply to HYS as well.

Look at these:

And have you actually taken the LSAT?

In at everything except Yale, Harvard (where your odds are about 50-50) and Stanford.

yeup, I took the LSAT last year but decided to take a year off to include my senior year grades.

I don't know if I have a "solid application"...my GPA was really good my freshman year then it slipped a bit during my sophomore and junior year because I uhhhh got a little too involved with greek life and spent wayy too much time writing/editing for my school paper. I've withdrawn from two classes and only finished 8 credits one term because I had to go home in the middle, but things went back to normal my senior year. Do they look more at your GPA or how you got your GPA?

You'll be fine with a 3.6. You could write an addendum if you really wanted to, but I wouldn't since it will just look like whining. Schools report your actual GPA, they don't have to summarize how you got it. As long as you finished strong, I'm sure you'll be set.

And for all of our sakes, PLEASE apply to HYS.

3.6 is LSAC 3.6? If so, probably in at all.

+1

Don't write an addendum. Add HYS to your list. And best of luck fellow Cornell alum!

Unless you had a single class with a D or one particularly bad semester accompanied by some external/internal issues, I think you are safer just letting your application stand on its own. However, schools will certainly be disappointed in your lsat score--you may want to address why you failed by one point. They don't like failure at HYS. Kidding aside, you should obviously apply to all three. And although I am biased, I'd highly recommend taking a visit to Harvard if you've never been. I guess some people aren't gushing about the law library, but I'd certainly say that the facilities and campus in general are great. The area is a cool place to live as well so again I'd recommend taking a visit. Probably visit the other guys too. I heard they are ok. Congrats on a stellar application and bonam fortunam

In everywhere but HYS. Also, you do not have a 50/50 shot at Harvard; Harvard rarely dips below 3.7. I'd still apply to the holy trinity, as the rewards outweigh the very small costs involved.

Nice stats! :wink:
You're in everywhere you apply!
Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and Berkeley may not accept you but that's about it..

i think you have a good shot at harvard. columbia/nyu are probably going to give you some $$$. i bet NU will offer you one of those full rides with a one year deferral condition. i think you will get into upenn if you write a truly inspirational why penn essay, same for michigan, but your lsat is pretty high for those schools otherwise... i think they might YP you.

even if you don't want to go there, apply to virginia, berkeley and duke as well. you never know what kind of offers you might get and how your feelings will change during the admissions cycle. plus, if you still aren't interested in them by the time you make your decision, they might offer scholarship money you can use to negotiate with. i didn't canvas the t10 and i regretted it later.
