3.6/172 (Updated with results)

Postby Vincent » Wed Jul 20, 2011 3:44 pm

-edit-

Final information (because it annoyed me when people asked for chances, and didn't post results)

GPA: 3.6
LSAT: 172
Major: Dual STEM
School: Top Public
Graduated in 4.5 years; declaring the second major the second semester of my senior year took up time.

Brief Softs (in my opinion, solid; not spectacular
- Research Honors Thesis on developing bacterial and nucleic acid agents to fight cancer.
- President of an on-campus organization; VP of another.
- Work in the community with underpriviliged youth

Originally:
Looking pretty much at T14; maybe UCLA/USC. Is it even worth it to shoot for YHS? I'd really like to go to Berkeley, but apparently I have a bad GPA for that... also FWIW, would be interested in BigLaw or IP Law (see science major). Also, where would I possibly get money?


Results: Deferred with need-based(?) financial aid at SLS. In at C ($), C($), N (sticker), B (sticker), M ($$), V (sticker), P (sticker), D ($$$), N (sticker), C ($$$), G (sticker), etc. Dinged at Y and H.

Thanks for the advice and help, everyone!

Assuming you have ties to CA you can get back to CA from any of the T14.

Currently a rising senior; intending to apply next application cycle

Softs (I know these don't actually mean very much, but the point is that I haven't done the....typical Pre-law track?):
- Research in Infectious Disease; will have an honors thesis for MCB Major done (probably).
- President of a club; VP of another.
- WR holder for a category of Rubik's Cube (haha, this probably gives me away).

I've heard from most people that if you want to do intellectual property in regards to patents you would need a PhD or masters in your intended field.

Berkeley looks good if you write a very good Berkeley specific PS

I had very similar #s. Expect 60kish or more from MVP on down. 50/50 shot at CCN.

TITCR. That said, I'd shoot Stanford (since you want CA and it's a black box) and Harvard an app. Your odds aren't great at either, but I think it's worth the 80 bucks to try.

Your GPA is a bit low for Berkeley, but it does seem like they have focused on improving their LSAT the last few years and if you do a 'Why Berkeley' essay and really show interest, then I think you have a good chance.

I think that's the best soft factor I've ever seen on TLS. :lol:
