3.18, 170 on PTs = Georgetown? Please?

Postby Peg » Sun Sep 19, 2010 4:35 am

Okay, I've been scoring 169-171 on my PTs. If we go by raw score, I'm not going below 88. I'm taking the Oct test and working on pushing myself up to a raw score in the mid-90s. I'm pretty confident I can do that, because most of the mistakes I make on the PTs are stupid ones.

But assuming I get 170, do I have a decent chance at GULC with 3.18/170? I did check LSN but I wanted to ask people here as well. Should I ED to GULC or to Cornell? What is the lowest you can get in the 170s range and still have a good shot at GULC?

I don't have work experience beyond a couple of internships. I'm not URM, I don't have any tragedies in my past/terminal disease/any extenuating circumstances that I can think of.

Look, you don't have an LSAT score yet, so it doesn't matter. Kill the LSAT, then come back and give your stats. Hypothetically, with a 3.18, you would get into Gtown or Cornell if you did ED, without ED fair amount of lower chance. . Without ED, I'd say you would need to get a few points above, 172-173, to be solid at Gtown or Cornell without ED. You could also shoot for NU which is splitter friendly, or UVA (especially ED).

Cornell does Early Action not ED. EA doesn't really give you a boost other than it represents you getting your app in early and rolling admissions means more spots early.

I think you have a solid shot at Cornell RD and maybe a tiny chance at UVA if you ED so that's what I would do. If you have WE, EDing at NW would be a better use of the ED though most likely since UVA is a likely ding, but with WE you are in at NW.

Northwestern only accepts 18% compared to 23% at Georgetown & 21% at Cornell. Being a splitter with work experience should get your application a serious read, but does not assure an offer of admission to NU.

Get an LSAT score and then come back. You need a 170 to have a non-zero chance at any T14.

If you did get a 170...you would have a shot.
