3.97 GPA/156 (diag)

Postby TKAM89 » Sat Nov 06, 2010 10:38 pm

Hi guys,

First off, if I am violating the posting rules/missed something in the sticky, mods feel free to delete my post.

I am in the middle of TestMasters and my first Diag I got a 145. I took my second diag today and got a 156.

With my 3.97 UG GPA (currently a senior), if I improve my score to around a 160 (praying for a 165....but who knows), what do you think my chances are at:

USC
Loyola
Boalt
NYU
GW
Georgetown
UCLA
BU
BC
American
USF
Pepperdine

Meh, I hate the uncertainty...any feedback is much appreciated

Have a good weekend!

I assume you'll be applying next cycle?

I had a 156 diagnostic and brought my score up to 166, but don't stop there. It took me months before I even broke 160. If you got 160 on your second diagnostic, you could easily score 170 or higher on test day.

They mean nothing. Couldn't even finish a cold diagnostic. After familarizing myself with the test a little scored low 150s. Got a 171 on the actual test. If you score 170+ you'll be set with that GPA, although you def won't be in a bad situation with a high 160s
