Extreme Splitter looking for advice

Postby crit_racer » Fri Jan 07, 2011 11:41 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking at applying this cycle with a 169 and a 3.14 GPA. I have no idea where I have a shot. I'm looking mainliy at schools in the Moutain West and PNW (Hastings, Lewis and Clark, Boulder, Denver, UW)

Any suggestions? Do I have any shot at UW or Boulder? LSP says I'm a "Consider" at UW and a "strong consider" at Boulder, but is this accurate? Any better schools I should look at? Can I get $$ at Denver at least???

Also, I have a VERY strong upward grade trend. I have 3 Fs, 3 Ds and a few Cs durin gmy first two years but made basically straight As (and a few Bs) my last two years.

I'm in the process of petitioning my alma mater for a retroactive medical withdrawal for the semester I got 3 Fs and 1 D, but that is still pending and it looks like I might have to apply w/ this current GPA of a 3.14.

Thanks in advance!

I think you have a chance at most schools you are looking at, but don't take my word for it.

You aren't really an extreme splitter either. Not high enough LSAT not low enough GPA.

UW likes high GPA from what I have seen, so I think your chances aren't great there.

What about Boulder and Hastings? I'm very interested in those two.

And, yeah, maybe I'm not an extreme splitter, but I thought the title would attract responses haha
