157 / 3.67 what are my odds?

Postby benjamin5rr » Thu Nov 04, 2010 12:59 am

I have a 157 on my 3rd try (canceled twice) which is lower than my average for PTs (above 160). I was really sick that day... My GPA is 3.67 from UBC (Canada) major in Biology. I have 2 years of work experience and lots of volunteer positions. Although a non-URM, I am an immigrant and recently became a Canadian citizen. What are my chances for the following schools:

Case western reserve
Miami
Pittsburgh
Penn State
Seton Hall
Rutgers-Newark

Fordham (PT)
George Mason (ED-PT)
Cardozo-Yeshiva(PT)
Temple(PT)
Chicago-Kent (PT)

Any suggestions for "reach" and "target" schools and any other advice will be appreciated.

everyones gonna tell you to retake. With that GPA you can get into T14, get a 165+ on the LSAT and your set.

Thanks for the reply. My first take was last September. So, unfortunately, I can't retake until next October. What do you think of my chances with the current situation?

Get a waiver to retake a 4th time. You're not gonna get into a school worth going to from a jobs vs. debt tradeoff.

Nice fix; can't believe I missed that little absurdity.

Thanks. That means waiting another year! ouch! I mean the Feb LSAT is too late in the cycle. And December is just a month away.
