Chances?

Postby sparies » Tue May 31, 2011 12:23 pm

Deciding whether I should retake the LSAT before applying...

3.47 Cumulative/3.79 Major GPA
Graduated with B.S. from IVY
2 years work experience
167 LSAT

UPENN
UMICH
UVA
Northwestern
Georgetown
UCLA
GW

I was sick w/fever when I took the lsat, but decided on keeping the score. I've scored up to 172 on practice tests.

Out at all of the schools that you listed with the possible exception of GW. You should definitely retake if you can score in the 170s consistently on timed practices.

It's pretty clear you should do a retake. 172+ gives you a decent shot at NU RD and an outside shot at UVA RD. You'll be pretty close to a lock at either though ED. Good luck!

3.47 Cumulative/3.79 Major GPA--ALL that matters is cumulative so no point in distinguishing
Graduated with B.S. from IVY--both irrelevant
2 years work experience--Slight help for some schools...depending on experience...TFA/Peace Corps??
167 LSAT--need to retake for your goals!

UPENN--out unless hit 172
UMICH--out unless 170
UVA---out unless 170 with ED first week
Northwestern--out unless 170+
Georgetown--maybe with a 169 and ED
UCLA--most likley out unless 170+ (they like GPA
GW (Probably WL and IN off WL at sticker)
