3.59, 170/176 --> T14?

Postby amorfati » Mon Jan 10, 2011 12:00 pm

3.59 from a T30 school, 176 on LSAT retake (with an addendum regarding illness and poor test center conditions for the first administration). I'll be three years out of undergrad, with a master's in a relevant field (and higher GPA - 3.9) and a couple minor publications, and a bit of relevant work experience. (Also, non-URM.)

I feel like I have a decent-ish idea of my chances at the following, or at least I've LSP'd the heck out of it repeatedly... I guess I'm not 100% sure about the calculator's accuracy. But what I'm particularly concerned about is aid, given my relatively not-so-stellar GPA. ...thoughts?

Harvard
Columbia
Chicago
NYU
Michigan
Virginia
Duke
Northwestern
Cornell
Georgetown

lol at bolded. Srsly though, you should be in a CCN down, with a pretty good shot at HLS. Not sure about scholarships specifics, but I don't see how you won't get $$$$ from at least one T14 if you're debt averse. GL and congrats on killing the hard factors!

Thanks for the input. (And yes, lol on the bolded - but just thought I'd throw it all in.)

So... fair to assume I shouldn't bother throwing an app to Yale? I'm going back and forth on this one. I'm almost positive I don't have much of a chance, but then it couldn't hurt... (well, other than having to come up with a 250...)

Pattd is being overly optimistic. Your shots at Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are all slim at best. But, you should be in almost everywhere else you'd want to go.

Almost certainly right, but I think OP is close enough in numbers to at least regret not sending in an application to HLS (probably wasting money/time at YLS and SLS).
