3.9x / 174 / HYS chances

Postby ckdgusdl88 » Tue Nov 02, 2010 4:51 pm

I am trying to determine my chances at H, Y, and S.
Thanks!

UG school: HYPS
GPA: Between 3.90 ~ 3.95 (Don't want to out myself)
My GPA places me between the 5th and the 10th percentile at my UG.
Major: Economics and a science double major (honors in the science major)
LSAT: 174
Other: Have been out of school since May, have been working at prestigious well-known law related institutions.
Letters: Pretty strong but probably not distinguishably excellent in the HYS applicant pool.

Can people please stop posting these types of ridiculously stupid posts? This is like someone asking "I have a penis, does that mean I'm a man?"

Have fun at Harvard

Haha I do have to agree that I have a strong chance at H.

How about Y and S?
They are known to be more unpredictable.

strong chance at all 3, but probably H > S > Y in terms of chances

LOL
I meant "not as easy to predict"

I was wondering if there are certain "markers" that tend to indicate if one will be accepted to Y or S... like major, ECs, or GPA/LSAT balance, etc.

These will all help for Y and S.

Probably not Yale.

Standford - Eh. Depends on how much they like your GPA, I suppose.

Harvard - Boston is lovely in the fall.

To be fair, no one is really a lock at HYS, and TLS can give people one hell of an inferiority complex (not implying you have one OP, just saying...)

I agree with im_blue's assessment of H > S > Y. You could conceivably get into all three. You could also conceivably get into none of them and have to "settle" for CCN (although I doubt this will happen). Either way, you have a bright future ahead of you.

Best of luck!
