Hey everyone. I'm in at every school you wish you could go to. I'm worried because I'm not positive if I can get into one of HYS. Not that anyone ever knows if they can get into these schools. Basic requirements are having a 175 and a 3.9. Then they just throw all the names in a hat and pick until the class is full. So.... what do you think my chances of having my name picked out of a hat are? Any advice is welcome. kthxbye.

Uhh dude he can't possibly aspire to be an anteater. If he did, he would snort the anthill. He's clearly trying to be a dragon, since he's burning the ant hill.

Cliched, but still good.

I find this topic sort of funny, because those are pretty near my numbers, and you can't teach LSAT without occasionally wondering...

Out everywhere above WUSTL. They should give you a good scholarship if you are okay with midwest. Best advice is to retake.

Can we start an anteater thread? I'm sorry but I laughed my ass off when I saw this. I think my co-workers think I enjoy my job to much when I laugh like this.....never good because they inevitably throw more work at me to supress my happiness

Grades are awesome, but with no extras, it could go either way for top 3. Outside of top 3 you're in with $$.

Actually thats only true for Y and S. From what I understand H is very numbers based and OP is probably in regardless.

I only deduced that from the fact that people on the forums have discussed 4.0/180's not getting into some of the top 3. But all things considered you are right Harvard is probably a lock.

I have never heard of a 4.0 180 getting rejected from Harvard (have they?) I have on the other hand known someone personally who went to OU that was rejected from Stanford with a 4.0 180
(just shows that everyone hates OU!!!)-TexasFan lol
though they did get into harvard and yale....my point still stands!

This guy had a pretty horrible cycle: 3.97/180 rejected from HYSCC, attending NYU.

Also this guy: 4.2/179 Mexican rejected from HY, turned down S for GULC.

That's an insanely bad cycle. Just shows that numbers aren't everything I guess. Bad for me...

I think OP should mention this
he/she doesn't have a lot of other extracuriculars. Having a club he/she started and was president of could suggest she was just very dedicated.
Could work very well for her

I'm no expert. Just my two cents.


I love the book in your avatar, it lets me know that we could never be friends.
