If you know you didn't do worse than 171, I'd keep the score. 1 point in crucial. CLS doesn't seem to give much of a boost to ED.

I think you should see your score before you worry about ED. A 3.73 is so very different from a 171/3.73 that isn't worth speculating on.

I don't think UC Berkely has ED. What did you eat on break?

No ED/EA for Boalt.

Hell, don't even need LoRs.

On the off chance my stomach affected me more than I thought, and I somehow manage to get another 171? How poorly would that reflect on me?


Not that bad. It is at least worth the risk.

Among Columbia, NYU & Berkeley, NYU offers the best ED boost.
Do not cancel your score since you are confident that you scored at least a 171. Many law students who scored in the low 170s have passed the bar & enjoyed successful legal careers, so all is not lost.

No need for LoRs? *facepalm* I should probably go check out the application. Are they purely optional, then? Any bonus for having glowing recommendations?

(That may be a good thing; my advisor refuses to write a LoR for law school...only for econ... sigh)


So, since I have decent chances with current GPA/LSAT at NYU (66% according to the calc), then ED at Columbia, and pray Boalt or NYU will pick me up after Columbia stomps my dreams under its exceptionally well-heeled feet?

Help me, TLS. You are my one and only hope.

Columbia/NYU will be tough since they have 172 medians, and Berkeley has no ED. Why not ED to Chicago instead?
