Chances at T14?

Postby Wustlmike19 » Mon Jun 28, 2010 3:58 pm

Alright guys,

I've just received my LSAT scores. Here are my stats

-UG GPA: 3.4 (upward curve: final 3 semesters= 3.5 3.7 4.0) @ WashU
Will be writing an addendum to explain my first 2 years: coming out to very conservative parents, which was truly the cause.
-LSAT: 170
-URM: Hispanic (cuban)
-LGBTQ
-Treasurer of 2 school clubs at the same time
-great letters of rec


I´d love to go to Columbia, and would in theory apply ED there. LSP says i'm a weak consider. However, I feel as if it may be a wasted ED and perhaps should instead ED to UPenn.

However, I would be happy getting into ANY T14 School.

Do you need any other info?

I understand that you have to just write a short account of things in these "what are my chances" threads. But just make sure that your PS is written very, very carefully, and you do not come off as blaming other people for your low GPA. I'm sure other posters will give you a hard time for this.

Sorry didn't see that you were Cuban. Blanket T7 - T14 with Apps. More than one will bite.

As for your chances in the T14, you have a very good chance at some of the bottom schools on that list, and perhaps you might get in even higher. If you haven't heard to lawschoolpredictor.com, make sure that you visit that site.

You have a nice LSAT score. You should look hard at Virginia, Georgetown and Cornell. But apply to a lot of schools.

This is only the case if you are a true URM (Mexican).

Enjoy the T-14. Apply early and hope for money.



The OP is Cuban, not Mexican.

Don't think Cuban is a URM, but I could be wrong. I'm pretty sure it's just Mexican/PR. If that's the case, you're out at T6 so don't waste your ED on Colombia. Best you could probably do is UVA with ED. Penn is a reach. Without ED you might get one of the lower T14. Think NU, Cornell, or G'Town, but there's still no guarantee with those numbers. Hate to burst your bubble but that's the truth.
