3.85/172 Chances for Columbia?

Postby t14bound » Sun Dec 26, 2010 3:23 am

I currently attend Fordham University as a fourth year/senior undergraduate doing Economics and Pre-Law. As you can see my gpa is 3.85 and my LSAT score is 172 (I took the October test). I did a internship as a legal intern at White and Case Law Firm in New York City over the summer and it was a stellar experience. I am president of my Pre-Law society as well. What are my chances for Columbia University? It's my top choice!

Thank You

If this is not a flame...

Looks pretty good, since you're at median LSAT and over GPA 75th!

Pretty good chance, although lol @ prelaw society. Best of luck bro. If that doesn't work out, enjoy other T14 acceptances.

Just out of curiosity, how did you get an internship with White & Case?

Oh, and +1 to your good shot at CLS.

Glad it helped bro. 172's nice. Just being the President of a Prelaw Society isn't that good of a soft haha.

This is relative. My school has the largest PAD chapter where i am on the Exec board and it is a ton of work. It is probably looked at the same as being president of a fraternity (however that may be viewed)

If you're doing fraternity life right, probably not much boost if it all because you view the fraternity as a way to make friends, meet babes, and have some fun social events and not some sort of "higher calling."

I agree, to be honest i hate 90% of people involved in greek life.

professional organizations are much less social
