Whoever voted straight reject clearly doesn't realize how far WE can go with NU.

there are so many factors that go into getting accepted.

if you have your app in the first day its accepted, with you CAS file complete, strong WE, strong letters and a baller statement, youve done a hell of a lot for yourself. kudos to you.

I've done none of those things. Though it's actually for my GF. She is afraid of getting the straight reject, and so is hesitant to apply ( she is taking the LSAT again in Dec and thinks with a 175ish, she'll be well above the median which would give her a better shot RD - since ED would be too late by then).

I'm inclined to think she can turn it in now, and her numbers would get her in, and at worst WL (when she can submit her Dec LSAT as part of her LOCI).

I'm not so sure how strong her chances are b/c the 171 is the THIRD score. Is taking the LSAT a fourth time really advisable if you already have a 171? I feel most of the top schools who would really care more about 175 than a 171 would be a little miffed that she took it 4 times.

Dont ask. I've posted about her before on here, and everyone says the same thing. But try to talk sense into a girl and this is what you get.
Kidding to all the females out there! :roll:

Anyways, for anyone that said straight reject, would like to hear your thoughts as well on why.

Can she take the LSAT 4 times? As usual I have probably misread something, (have new glasses now though :D ), but I thought you could only take it 3X in a 2 year period, which may not apply to her anyway.

3x in a two year period unless you get a school to sponsor a fourth time (which is pretty easy). Anyways, i'm inclined to believe the OP will get in because we can't really know how the three takes will affect them but because NW only has to report top score it may not matter.

You're right. But her first scores are from 07 so she's all good on that front.
