165 LSAT (second time)/3.84

Postby js77 » Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:52 pm

Have zero clue how this is going to turn out, any thoughts?

165 LSAT (time #2)/3.84...2 years work experience with low-income seniors.

BU
BC
Fordham
Cardozo
USC
Indiana
Penn (REACH CITY)
Emory (alum)
WUSTL
Maryland
American

Any predictions would be greatly appreciated. I feel like I'm on a gigantic fence.

Do you think the fact that I had to submit the first week of January (due to the DEC LSAT) will hurt me at a lot of these places??

I feel as if the predictor is skewed bc of GPA. I have read that a reverse split between GPA and LSAT makes for an unpredictable cycle...

Then certainly a bunch of schlubs on an Internet message board will be of even less help.

My predictions:

BU = In
BC = In
Fordham = Probably in, remote W/L chance
Cardozo = In, maybe w/$$
USC = W/L
Indiana = In, with $$$ (though they are really going after higher LSATs this cycle)
Penn (REACH CITY) = Reject
Emory (alum) = In
WUSTL = Probably in, but remote W/L chance
Maryland = In, maybe w/$$
American = In w/$$


Hard to tell if and where you'll get scholarships, but I'd bet I'm at least 85% correct.

I had identical numbers with no work experience and applied the same time last year. I'll only list the same schools I applied and what happened, but my softs were non-existent (suburban white kid) as the only softs that matter are the color of your skin, some tragic upbringing, or color of your skin. However, you do have work experience and a 15% drop in apps going for you this cycle:
BU WL then rejected
BC Reject
Indiana Sent a rejection letter in july, lol @ indiana
WUSTL - WL then accept

At this point, it all really depends on what the school needs (LSAT or GPA) at any rank above BC. Penn is probably out, but you have a good chance at the rest and are in at Indiana ranks and below. Good luck.

EDIT: leaving the Freudian slip in about the softs

Not really a split, IMHO.


+1.

I think my undergrad institution had 12% of the students get 3.8 or higher and a 164 is in the 90th percentile across all LSAT takers. Pretty darn close. you may be a higher on the gpa than the LSAT, but it's not like you have a 2.6/177 or a 4.0/151

I had kind of similar stats (GPA was 3.75, though). I didn't get my apps out until the first week of January:
WL at BU/BC and WUSTL, in at Fordham, Cardozo with $$; flat out rejected at USC (really friendly rejection, though).

I definitely believe applying late will hurt at some of them:
BU WL
BC WL -> IN (because of the GPA)
Fordham IN
Cardozo IN
USC DING (they have a pretty steep 167 LSAT wall for non-URMS
Indiana IN
Penn (REACH CITY) OUT
Emory (alum) WL (50/50)
WUSTL WL
Maryland IN
American IN

I also have pretty similar stats for this cycle
LSAT: 164, GPA 3.8.... 1 year fellowship.

So far:
BU- In
BC- In
USC- Still waiting

But to give you some hope, I also got
Vanderbilt- In
Minnesota- In (with 25K/yr)
William and Mary- In (with 17K/yr)

Good luck! :)
