4.0/171 (just one LSAT)
Wondering whether the app fee and the hassle are worth a shot at Stanford. I know I have the numbers, but my softs are not so great.
- Two recs: one is probably very good, one is average
- UG is a Tier 3 public (think Shit-town State University)
- So-so work experience since graduating a few years back (mostly jobs that don't require a degree)
- PS is decent to good
I'm definitely applying CCN on down, but I would appreciate some input on my chances at S. I'm currently leaning toward spending that $100 app fee on the new Call of Duty instead.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!

Definitely worth the app fee if you want to go to Stanford. I would recommending getting one of your recommenders to write you a targeted LOR for Stanford though. Purely anecdotal evidence, but I am from a mid-sized public university, nothing special, and a friend of mine was waitlisted last year with 4.0/169. He waited to send a targeted LOR until after he was waitlisted. I might recommend having it sent in right away instead. My $.02
