Chances for BU/BC/Vandy/Illinois

Postby hist_nole » Sun Jan 02, 2011 1:08 am

I have yet to receive my LSAT score (December test), but I expect low to mid 160s. I already completed my undergraduate work and my UGPA was a 4.0 and am currently working on my MA, with my graduate GPA a 4.0 as well. I hope the collective wisdom of the forum will help judge my chances at BU, BC, Vandy, and Illinois (although, I am applying to a handful of other schools as well).

I am not an URM, however, I do have a handful of soft factors that might sway the decision one way or another. I completed my B.A. at 19 and will complete my M.A. at 20. I have a scholarly article due to be published in a peer-reviewed journal this Spring and have conducted extensive manuscript research at various academic institutions. I am also working part-time at my university and am responsible for certain aspects of regional accreditation.

I am aware that potentially being in the low 160s does not help my situation, but I am curious whether my soft factors (notably age) will weight heavily in the admissions process.

Thanks for any input!

From everything I've read, I would expect your age to influence you negatively, if at all. If you don't feel you've reached your peak on your LSAT (frankly, if you can keep a 4.0 throughout and graduate that early, I seriously doubt 170 is out of your reach), then retake and get some WE while you wait a cycle.

Above +1 Probably not a food idea to draw any extra attention to your young age.

Mid 160s good shot at BU I'd say

Your age will impact you negatively, if at all, for school.

Your age will probably impact you more negatively with employers.

Make this thread again with an LSAT score. No score= no chances bro
