3.81/169 T14?

Postby 1212 » Sun May 15, 2011 3:51 pm

Hi guys,

First post, applying 2011 cycle. Thanks for the help! :)

My info:
LSAC GPA 3.81/UGPA 3.91 (Received all As, 2Bs, and one stupid freakin' D which did not count in UGPA because of academic forgiveness)
LSAT 169
Economics/Political Science double major, Philosophy minor
Large public university
Honors and completed a relatively large amount of research, junior and senior theses, research assistantship in department
President of two student orgs, held other leadership positions in orgs
Considerable amount of volunteer work (domestic and abroad)
Government internship in DC
URM-black

Side notes: Should I write a GPA addendum? Should I retake the LSAT in Oct?

Interested in T14, especially HS and UT

Enjoy Harvard/Stanford/Yale, could probably even just submit a blank PS

More about the blank PS than the rest of it. You have a very good shot at HYS. Do not write a GPA addendum.

LOL @ everyone who thought I was serious about submitting a blank PS. Obviously write a PS, but with stats like 3.81/169 URM it doesn't even have to be good. Just readable.

You will get HYS. Don't settle for less but apply to other schools to try and leverage big scholarship money.

No need for an addendum or retake really. You're basically a lock of at least one of YHS. I wouldn't apply outside of the T6 - you'll get plenty of dough from CCN.

OP will probably get a lot of $ at HYS for the colossal stats.

I thought they don't give out merit schollies for transfers. So will transfer get finaid?
