170-on LSAT

I have decent resume, I am current a Legal Assistant at a Law Firm (Have been for a year now) Played competitive sports in college, member of multiple orgs on campus, and I have some very good references...

Question being...do I have a semblance of a shot to get into a school like Boston College, Unv of Chicago, Northeastern Unv or Unv of Cinci ?


The only chance you have a T13 is a NU with an ED and even then I wouldn't be confident you get in.

Gtown pt might happen.

Don't go to Cinci or Northeastern.

Is the general thought that lawschoolpredictor.com is too generous? They were giving me consider/strong consider at Columbia, Chicago, etc. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a lot of representative data.

OP, your lsat might not be high enough to get NU ED but worth a shot, personally i think an ED to GULC PT is easiest way in the T14 especially for low gpa candidates

It's EXTREMELY unreliable for splitters and pretty unreliable in general IMHO.

Thanks for this perspective. There is so little precedent out there that I just need to go for it. My real concern is that my application would just get trashed by many schools before anyone glanced at my story, but based on what I've been reading, it sounds like the application will at least be read. Again, I appreciate the help... and apologies for hijacking the thread a little bit.
