165/3.52 with MBA and 4 years legal WE

Postby thegreatk » Fri Jan 28, 2011 3:53 pm

I also applied mid January due to the late LSAT score release. I know it's late, but I think my softs will outweigh my disadvantage from late applications. Hopefully you guys agree...

UCLA (huge reach, I know)
USC (reach 2)
UC Davis
UC Hastings
UC Irvine
Loyola
San Diego

You should be solid for almost all those schools, the only exception being USC. For some reason I've seen them drop a lot more < 167 lsat apps than usual this cycle, I figure they are trying to move up in the rankings but then again I could be wrong. Emphasize your work experience and you should be good :) . Keep us updated on your progress and let me know if you have any more questions.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you're definitely out at UCLA. I mean, dare to dream, but looking at LSN it doesn't look like they'll touch a 165 unless you are an URM.

Unfortunately, same with USC. Their magic number seems to be 167 these days, and I would be surprised if you even got a waitlist. Sorry friend!

UC Irvine is impossbile to tell. There's very little data, and their numbers may change as they go from 2/3 general scholarships to 1/3 general scholarships this year.

You should be in at the rest, probably with money at each.

GOOD LUCK!

I think very likely in at all except USC and UCLA. I do think it is worth applying to those with your experience and MBA though, but I wouldn't get your hopes up because admissions is pretty much a straight numbers games IMO.

Thank you guys so much for the responses. You all said pretty much what I've been thinking; solid at all except USC and UCLA, which I'm likely out at. I have far more hope for USC than UCLA, but we will see how it goes.

I will keep you all updated! Fingers double crossed for Irvine....
