154, 3.1 BU

Postby gin » Tue Nov 02, 2010 12:43 am

What are my chances with BU with a 154 LSAT and 3.1 GPA?

UIM, Bilingual, 1 year out of college, some experience working at a law firm, might mention that I'm gay (though I doubt that might have any bearing)
The reason I'm asking this is because they sent me a fee waiver, otherwise I wouldn't even think of applying there

100% auto reject.

dont look too much into fee waivers. Schools want as many applicants as possible so they can say they are highly selective. save your time and dont apply

Mexican-American

100% auto reject.

you read my mind. That's the only possible reason I could think of. It's going to take me like an hour to feel the application and probably some tweaking of my PS and since its free I have nothing to lose.

Might as well try! All you're doing is spending $12 (The LSAC fee) and maybe helping their selectivity % if you're not chosen to attend. No biggie really...

$12 is a 6-pack of the Leinenkugel Winter Seasonal.

I don't think the OP's chances are as low as everyone is saying. They aren't high or anything - but not exactly auto-reject.

Honestly, your softs will likely determine whether you get in. If a URMs stats are both below the 25%, then schools generally look at softs.
