168 / 3.8

Postby Gadget123 » Sat Oct 23, 2010 12:48 am

But bad (2.7) last semester and misdemeanor for MIP. Decent softs, but nothing special. Non-URM.

Shot ED Duke or Mich? ED Ucla?

Law school predictor has you at consider for Duke and Mich and strong consider for UCLA with no ED. ED at Duke moves you strong consider, ED at Mich is also strong consider, and ED at UCLA is strong consider.

Pick which you like best and ED there. Good luck!

Duke and Mich seem rough, though possible with ED. You are at Duke's GPA median and below their LSAT median, where as you are above Mich's GPA median and below their LSAT median. Assuming that schools are looking to increase their medians, the fact that your GPA is borderline at/above their median makes me think you have a definite shot at not getting in. IIRC from last cycle a similar numbers combo to you got rejected ED at Michigan. I would seriously consider retaking the LSAT as a jump of 2-3 points would seriously increase your chances at cracking the T14.

Your LSAT is 25th percentile at Duke and Michigan. I would ED to UCLA where you're at the median.

ED at UVA will do nothing if he is below both medians.
