Chances at Georgia??

Postby plug1 » Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:08 pm

Hi, Im looking for some feedback. I have a 3.4 gpa and a 165 LSAT -- Colombian -- about a years work experience in Finance -- out of state

What would all you TLSers say my chances of acceptance are at UGA?

You are EXACTLY at their 75% LSAT, 25% GPA. Sorry I'm not a URM so I never looked into and not positive if Colombian counts. Regardless I think it can only help your chances. I think you should feel good about Georgia.

feel good. 165 should make you safe with a decent GPA.

In state, sure acceptance. Out of state, not sure but that LSAT is above their medians so you should have a good shot... one thing it seems that they are accepting mostly in state right now due to some problems last year with "over-selling" so that might have some adverse affects for out of staters.

Thanks guys. So being at the 25th and 75th percentiles is a good bet?

i'm at georgia right now. the median lsat for our class was 164 and median gpa was 3.7. i feel sure that we will be working for a 165 median this year. so, i think that you will get in. also, like the other poster said, did you identify yourself as a urm?

Yes its a good bet. Also, although Columbian doesn't count as URM, there isn't much Hispanic diversity here, so that Columbian heritage will probably make them more interested in you.

Last cycle pretty much any score 164 and over was in. Looking good. However, apply asap. Last year, OOS student got waitlisted in increasing numbers as the cycle went on.

I think so. They asked if I was of hispanic origin ans I put yes. I also wrote a diversity statement if that helps at all.

as far as i know, people can just self-select into urm groups and then schools report those students who have done so. urm status will definitely help. is georgia your number one choice? and, do you have any other ties to the area?

Georgia is my number one choice for schools that I think I can reasonably get into but I dont have any ties to the area other than some friends.

i understand. well, when i made my decision to come to georgia it was mainly for financial reasons. in your position just know that most, if not all, out of state students will qualify for in-state tution during the 2nd and 3rd year. so, i think it's important to consider that georgia may save you 40k in tuition over the last two years alone (by that time it will probably be approximately 20k per year here compared to 40k at other places). also given your 165 and probable urm status i don't think that it would be out of the question for you to receive a first year scholarship that drops you to in-state levels, thus saving you another 15-20k. anyway, like the above posters said, you should apply asap if you haven't already. if at all possible i think it would be beneficial to visit the school in an effort to convey your sincere interest. good luck

+180.

I applied last semester, Early November, 3.01/165. Got in pretty quickly, was offered the in-state equalization scholarshp. Pretty much every one over a 164 got in.

HOWEVER

peolple with better numbers-- i remember a 166 3.1, oos- who applied later, got w/l'ed. So, get your app in ASAP. Also, I think their standards have gone up, the number of apps last year doubled or something.
