3.2 what LSAT score?

Postby daminor » Thu Feb 17, 2011 9:14 pm

With a 3.2 undergrad GPA, what's the minimum LSAT score I could get to increase chances of acceptance into UNC, OSU, Cornell and similar schools?

Also, I am an AA F and I have a graduate GPA of 3.9 (even though its not included in the GPA/LSAT calculation i'm wondering will it help?)

Thanks!

160+ for a strong shot. Follow the link below for a more accurate picture.

Edit
PLUS, apply early! If you can get over 160, apply early, and with an early decision agreement, you have a good shot at the T14.

UNC has a median of 162, so aim for a 162 or higher

Seems like an odd mix of schools. Think about where you want to practice.

Also, try to score as high as possible; if you score in the high 160s, you should, at the very least, get $$$ at some T20 schools.

Yeah, those are just a few schools that are of interest. I am not sure of where I would want to practice at this point, but I definitely will take the advice so that I can narrow my search. I also will be entering with about 4 years of work experience, does that help my application in any way? Thanks again for your help!

URM cycles are hard to predict. If you want a certainty at t20 and better get 170+ anything in the 160+ range is more difficult to predict, but as a URM you should have a good shot at all of these with 165+

I think 165+ is reasonable. As a URM you get a boost in part because there is a perceived rational/cultural bias in the LSAT, and so it is in theory not as good of a predictor for AA's. However, your GPA is low which might mitigate some of that, so while a low 160's score will make you competitive, I would shoot for 165+ (Well shoot for the best you can do obviously).

UNC's median is 163. But +1.
