Chance at CLS?

Postby JD=Doctor » Tue Mar 29, 2011 2:58 pm

i had a 165 and 166 (practiced at a 169-172 the 2nd time around)
my gpa is above their median.

What do i need to feel comfortable about getting into CLS for the next cycle (applying september 1st)
I plan on taking the June test.

taking into account my 2 lower scores ofcourse..

People rarely get into CLS with anything less than a 170. They drop a point lower or two for people with high GPAs who ED, but a 166 has a very slim chance unless you're a URM.

My question is with my 2 lower scores, what score would i need to get (on the june test) to have a comfortable chance at getting in...

iv seen their medians however with 2 lower scores would i need a supremely high lsat..

Exactly how far above their median is your GPA?

See if you can hit 173. I think that if you can manage to get above both medians there's not much chance they'll turn you down ED.

EDIT: As far as applying RD and feeling "comfortable," I'd still say about the same, maybe a point higher. Remember that only your highest score counts towards their stats.

Anybody else have any insight into how they handle big jumps in LSAT scores?
