where can I get in?

Postby glucose101 » Fri Jun 04, 2010 4:51 pm

Mexican-American from San Antonio, TX

3.3 GPA English major at Middlebury College; rising senior

I know I'm going to get a lot of groans...but I haven't taken the LSAT yet, but I *wait for it* am aiming for a 172 (I'm going to take a gap year with a job in addition to studying for the LSAT this summer and the following if need be)

Plan on applying as early as I can in the cycle

Most notable: Debate treasurer/social coordinator, Real Estate Investment internship (in SA, in addition to paid jobs), work for school's HR department

The LSAT is 60-80+ percent of the decision, it's impossible to say.

It's great that you're "shooting" for a 172, but so are the other 99% of people who score below that threshold. Scoring in the 99th percentile and above isn't something you can bank on. Take the LSAT, then use Law School Numbers and Law School Predictor.

Also, the fact that you're a urm will help you, but it's not going to be some miracle application point. Your gpa is still low as well.

Sorry to sound ominous or negative, these are just the facts. Study hard for the LSAT, it's going to be absolutely key for you.

Agree. It does not matter what number you are shooting for, it all depends on your preparation, determination, and execution of the LSAT. Do not shoot for a 172, shoot for a 180 and go from there.

Good Luck!

Get an LSAT and ask again when you have a score.

Return to “What are my chances?”
