Wondering if I can get into a T1/T2 160/3.35

Postby luckyyykat » Sat Dec 11, 2010 10:20 pm

Am I able to get into a T1/T2 with these stats? Any of them? I was wondering if I was able to get into USD/Loyola(LA)/SMU or anything. If it matters I go to Berkeley and Econ major, but it probably doesn't. Please help! I am worrying a lot and wondering if I should just wait another year or two and retake the lsats (took it again today, but pretty sure did worse).

Loyola should be a reach, but econ might help you. USD should be a yes, especially after they consider your major and university. If I were to guess USD: Admit, Loyola: Waitlist/reject. If you get waitlisted at USD you should just find a specific reason you want to attend and write a LOCI.

Oh, and to cover all bases, retake.

Edit: After just browsing for a minute, you should get in both.

Out at SMU - below both medians by a good margin (3.75/164, IIRC).

Definitely can get into a T2, but since you mentioned it yourself: retake. A few points can make you competitive at T1s and give you scholarship opportunities you don't have right now.

You can get into a number of T2 schools. I would suggest retake, but if you are not up for it, pick schools in the region you want to work. If you have no geographic preference, avoid T2's in saturated markets like NY and DC.

Maybe you can get some work experience. I'd imagine an economics degree from Berkeley could open up some good entry-level jobs. This is something I'm considering, for what it's worth.

You could get into a lot of T2s, but as someone already mentioned, there will always be the geographic factor. Saw Wiz last week. It was dope.
