Am I crazy??

Postby alexandra » Sun Dec 19, 2010 5:31 am

Hi everyone,

I have a 3.79 GPA and a 163 from the Oct test. So far I have applied to:

Boston College
Boston University
Fordham
George Washington
Hastings
Cardozo
Loyola

Waiting on the results of Dec test before I apply to:
USC
UCLA
Georgetown (PT)
Berkeley
Maybe even NYU/Columbia/Chicago if I'm 168+ (dream schools!)

Humor me and let's assume I have a 167 from Dec. Considering great rec's, good softs, and being LGBT and middle eastern (coming from Muslim family).... What do you all think? Anywhere I should add (I only want to live in or very near a big city)? Thank you!!

Your GPA is promising, but most of the schools on your list highly value the LSAT. For BC and BU in paticular you have a very slim chance w/o a 165 or better, GW you likely need 166 or better. USC's magic number is 167.

When you get your new LSAT score checkout http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/ and http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com/wp-co ... ograms.htm.

Good luck.

For the first group the first predictions are for 163 and the second prediction is for a 167.
The second group is with a 167.
Also, not so sure about the $$ for each

Agree with the 167, top 5% on the LSAT is a must practically. Boston College and Boston U are in the realm of possibility. GPA isn't holding you back which should help your chances.

You say berkeley out, but OP might as well throw an app in if you get a 167 or above. True, they accept almost no one, but that doesn't mean they only accept people with a 170 or above. They are notoriously holistic/random... so I dunno... shoot for the moon.
