chances?

Postby lawgrl21 » Mon Oct 18, 2010 10:58 pm

What are my chances at BU/BC/Fordham with a 3.7, 165 taking the LSAT one time out of a prestigious ug school? I applied EA to Fordham.

All 3 have a 166 LSAT median, so you have a shot but not a great one. If you retake and get a 166+ you'd be in at all 3.

I think you are a lock at fordham. BU/BC is definitely worth an app even with your current numbers

Yep. Check out the stark transitions from red/yellow to green on almost any LSN graph.

This is true; however, the 3.7 GPA is at or above those school's medians, so it certainly worth the app. Follow the dots on LSN at the 165 LSAT line up the GPA axis, yellows start turning green around there. An extra point or two on the LSAT would be clutch, but certainly still worth applying. WLs are quite likely with a sub-median LSAT, of course, but they have to make the GPA stats, too.

OP, I'd try to put good "Why BU/BC" sections on your apps, either as extra essays or part of your personal statements (assuming you haven't already). These schools want people who they think will fit in well in their atmospheres, and you want to show them you would.

I actually did do EA to BC as well. Thanks to everyone for the input!
