4.0/166 Chances at GULC/UCB/MVP?

Postby zephyr36 » Sun Oct 31, 2010 8:19 pm

Average softs: international internship, honors thesis, experience in a law office, leadership roles in clubs and organization, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Chances at various t14 specifically UCB, Duke, UVA, GULC? Any chance at NYU or Chicago?

What would be my chances if I applied ED at Georgetown?

I've met with the Georgetown Dean before and he specifically said applying ED adds a bonus to your application. Although I don't know anything else about your application- your LSAT is below their median, so I don't know that you'll get in, but it will definitely increase your chances. I know that Georgetown has ED option throughout the entire process, but you should send this in as soon as you decide if you want to apply regular or ED

Good luck!!

Bump.

Also: Would I be better of taking the LSAT again in Dec? I hit 166 with -4 on LG, which I'd gotten -1 or -0 on my last several PTs. I think I could definitely go up to 168, with what I'd guess to be a 50/50 chance of hitting 170.

Definitely retake. With a 4.0/168 you'll have a ~40% shot at Chicago, and a 4.0/170 gets Columbia and a shot at Stanford.

I'm just scared of not doing that much better or the 168 not having the effect it normally would considering that I'll have a 166 as well. I feel I might get dinged out of some schools that I would have maybe gotten into if I'd applied earlier such as GULC ED.

With a 4.0 GPA, every additional LSAT point opens up better schools for you. I would apply now with the 166 and switch to ED if the December score isn't higher.

The TLS cliche; apply ED to UVA
