169/3.69 - Done homework but some odd GPA/work experience

Postby sach1282 » Tue Jan 11, 2011 5:09 pm

Ok, so I've been on LSN/LSP and done a lot of detailed research but I'm still not sure where I stand. My LSAT is 169 and my GPA is 3.69 but here are the details:

1) I've been out of school two years. One year I worked part time as a teacher's aide for children with developmental disabilities and the other I taught English in S. Korea.
2) For my GPA, my freshmen year cumulative was 2.67, but every semester following that I received a 4.0 except once when I received a 3.85
3) I don't have any good official extracurriculars except briefly holding a press secretary job for the poli sci association, but I play in a semi-professional band.
4) My undergrad is nothing special but I have a double major and a minor with very strong letters from the best professors at the university.

Edit: Forgot the school list!

Here is my school list, listed in no particular order:

Cornell
Illinois
Minnesota
Washington St. Louis
Virginia
Michigan
Northwestern
Duke

Possibly Penn
Possibly BU

I think you're in everywhere from WashU down. Good chances at Vanderbilt and UCLA, most likely in at Texas. Decent shots at Georgetown, Michigan and Cornell in the T14.

He kind of gave you that. You have very little shots, if at all, at Virginia, Northwestern, Duke, and Penn. But, Michigan could happen, I would ED there if you are deadset on getting into the best school possible. Cornell is very, very likely, the rest of the schools on your list you should definitely be in with good chances at money.
