170 / 3.67 URM

Postby wpw114 » Fri Jul 30, 2010 1:18 pm

Hey all,

I am going to be a senior at an ivy league school this year and am going to apply to law school. My GPA is 3.67 and my lsat score is 170. I am also Hispanic.

I am looking to apply to Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Duke, Northwestern, USC, and UCLA.

What do you guys think my chances are at these?

Just to clarify, only PR/MX count as URM (though other Hispanic may get a slight boost).

Sorry for being vague. I am Mexican-American.

No problem, just wanted to make sure considering many new posters do not understand what URM means in the context of law admissions.

Check out lawschoolpredictor.com and lawschoolnumbers.com to see others with similar stats.

Out at Yale, Decent shot at Stanford and Harvard though not guaranteed by any means, Excellent chances at USC, UCLA and Duke. If you don't have work experience I would apply somewhere other than NW.

Slim chances at Yale, Harvard, Stanford, slightly better for Columbia (but you should apply to them..you never know)
Good shot at the other schools (though NW does consider work experience of applicants for some reason)
