170/3.8 - 4+ Years WE - Chances at T14?

Postby heyyyyyyyyy » Mon Nov 08, 2010 5:58 pm

170 (retake from 167) with a 3.8 at a top private. 4+ years of fairly unique work experience, significant leadership positions, etc. Great LORs.

I would like to see if I could get into the T14...any chances?

Appreciate any thoughts folks might have.

THANKS!!

7-14 you have good shots at.

Thanks. Any point in applying to any of the top 6? Or is that just a waste of money.

I don't think CCN is out of the question, but it's unlikely. Worth the app fee, I think.

ED to NYU if you really want T6. HYS are a crapshoot and CC seem out of reach. I think you stand a chance everywhere from 7-14 and you're basically a lock for at least one of them. Any specific school you desperately want?

You'll definitely get into at least one T14. I would ED to NYU.

As people have said...apply 7-14 and pick a few out of CCN to apply to.

HYS would be a waste of money.

Thanks all. Would like to be in NYC (family reasons) but understand the challenges. Did previously apply to CC with my older and lower LSAT score and was placed on "reserve." not sure if that means anything.

It doesn't mean anything really. If you don't mind the application fees then I encourage you to apply to CC. Definitely ED to NYU as we've all been saying if you want NY though. I think you have a decent shot. If not you'll probably get penn and NYC will still be very possible.
