3.0/164 into UH.. contradictory site predictions?

Postby lajksdgbiu » Wed Dec 01, 2010 2:18 pm

More on my stats--I have a 3.1 in POLS from a top 50, but I expect to lose .1 once my transfer credits are averaged in. There's an 'F' in there somewhere and my last two semesters were my weakest, so there is a sharp downward trend in my GPA. (I'm hoping that my transcript will make it clear that this had little to do with increasing difficulty, as those two semesters were just general requirement courses. Also, my transcript evinces a strong positive correlation between course difficulty and GPA. Thoughts on this?) I'm taking in December and am currently averaging a 164 on post-50 PTs, though I expect to make some gains between now and then (154->164 in the four weeks i've studied this far, hoping for another five before Dday).

Softs: 3.87 POLS GPA(worth mentioning?), Congressional intern (yeah, yeah), founded a fraternity chapter, 9mo WE with an NPO.

I live near Houston, so UH makes a lot of sense for me. LSPredictor gives me a 'consider', hourumd gives me a 100% chance (1.7% rejected with better) and LSAC gives me a 75-87% chance. 'Consider' seems to suggest a much lower chance than the others.. and from what I've read on the forum, LSPredictor seems to be pretty accurate.. What do you think?

I think you should take the lsat and then ask us. People drop from their PT average all the time and going from a 164 to a 169 is probably tougher than 154 to 164. Don't bank on anything.

Stay above 3 and get above 162 and you should be in.
