My first "chance me" (eek!) - 170/4.04

Postby Confused7 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 4:37 pm

Hi guys,

I've looked around, checked LSN, checked TSL stats, and read a lot of posts on this forum. I've never done anything like this before, but I think I'd give it a shot. What do you make of my chances at Stanford, Columbia, or NYU? Should I retake for Harvard/Yake (crapshoots anyway) since my LSAT is a bit low?

170, 4.04 LSAC GPA, non-URM, pretty good PS, demonstrated commitment to public interest (resume), a lot of work/internship/volunteer experience during school, and decent LORs.

Any/all responses are much appreciated!

id apply from Yale to Michshitgan. Then pick 1-2 in the NW/duke/cornell range. Maybe apply to vandy/usc/ucla for scholarship money..

You will everything below NYU. Maybe ED at CCN?

take scholarship money at lower T14 schools and try to engotiate.

Then profit.

Stanford is always a long shot. Columbia and NYU prolly watlist. Prolly out at H and Y. Of course all of it is worth an app fee, so good luck.

Thanks for all your help! It's disheartening to hear about this numbers game, but gotta be realistic and hope for the best.
