165/3.0 URM

Postby stevenash1313 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 12:49 pm

I got a 165 on the June LSAT. I have a 3.0 from a Georgia school. Super involved on campus(RA, orientaion leader, Peer Health Educator) I interned at Planned Parenthood my junior year. I Graduated in May and will be working as a paralegal in a law firm for the next year. I am also black male. What are my odds for UVA, Georgetown, Penn, Emory. These are my reaches. I know I'll get into my state schools more than likely.

I think you should get into at least one, with a good personal statement/recommendations, maybe more

You'll get into Emory easily. I got in with $$ a 3.3, 167 and I'm not URM.

You have a shot at Georgetown as well as a small shot at UVA. Penn may be out but URM cycles are hard to predict so if you put together a good app it might push you over.

You should aim a little higher though. I don't know how you feel about location, but I'd blanket the lower T14, maybe even Michigan on down and see who bites. I think you can snag a T14 if you apply early with a good application.

I always tell people that if you have the ability to retake (cost of test, time to study, etc), then you can't be hurt by doing so if you have a reason to believe you'll do better. If you got a 168+ I think you'd be a lock for at least GULC and UVA, even with the 3.0. A 170+ and you're looking at the higher T14.
