Please help - 2.9/169

Postby NYCbound35 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 9:53 am

I have a 2.9 GPA as a biology major at a top 20 undergrad with a 169 on the LSAT. I'm fresh out of undergrad with good softs, ps, etc. Do I have any chance at a T14 school with those numbers?
Thanks a lot

that 169 is pretty rough. ED to UVA is out of the question. LSAT is low for NU and you have no WE. LSAT is low for GTown too. I don't see it happening. not to be a dick and point it out, but that has to be the roughest GPA/LSAT I've ever seen. you're right on the cusp of arguably the most important .1 gpa point and 1 lsat point. sorry.

T14 is out. Enjoy WUSTL.

Retake, seriously. The difference between WashU and Gtown/NU is large. Getting 173+ will put you in contention for NU/Gtown.

He has no WE so NU is not happening unless he's willing to put off law school for 2 years. GTown seems unlikely unless he pulls the waterman.

Get a year of WE, retake for a 170+, and ED to NU.
