3.8/169 Any hope for Chicago?

Postby sojuteacher » Wed Nov 03, 2010 9:55 pm

I think I have a slim chance to get into Chicago, what do you guys think?

3.8 GPA from Tier One, good softs, 167 and a 169 LSAT score, and my father went to Chicago Law. The school is my top choice and I'm eding.

I'm hoping to at least get waitlisted, then retake the LSAT and hope for higher in February. Worth it?

AND retake and break 170! You can do it!

Somewhat slim, but worth it-- and apply elsewhere just in case

Thanks for the encouragement! I've been pretty bummed after my recent LSAT score - was PTing mid 170s and I felt that I really rocked the test that day so I was pretty devastated.

Glad I still have a chance to reach for the dream :)

I think you have a pretty good shot actually...the alumni status will help, and you are only a couple points away from a really good shot )(w/o the legacy status).
