chances in california

Postby mlee85 » Mon Aug 16, 2010 10:47 pm

3.36 GPA. Not URM. Out of state. Top30 undergrad with traditionally low grades if that helps at all. 3.0 = deans list.

What do I need to score on my LSAT to have a good chance of admission at these schools:

UCLA
USC
Irvine
Hastings
Davis
Pepperdine
San Diego

Is just scoring above the 75th percentile enough? I keep seeing that California schools are not so great for applicants that have low GPA but high LSAT.

True, they are not splitter friendly, but a 3.36 has a shot if you get above the 75th. All you can really do is do your best and see what you get. You might want to consider T14's with decent CA placement as well (i.e. Michigan) depending on your LSAT.

So a 170+ would give me a good shot at all those schools and 50/50 at UCLA/USC?

San Diego and Pepperdine, from what I have gathered, do not require such an LSAT score. I think you'd be good at them both 164 or so.
