3.75/168 t14??? chicago? michigan? NW? any chances???

Postby jinso » Mon Oct 10, 2011 4:42 pm

Hi all, as the title says, my stats are 3.75 (lsdas) gpa and 168 lsat,
good letters of rec, strong and (I would say) unique softs. although from what i read softs don't really matter too much?
as for work exp, I have 2 years volunteer work as an academic tutor, as well as quite a few other self organized charity events that raised thousands of dollars.

as to my school background, im in a large state school i believe ranked 75, although the program i'm in is ranked in the top ten of the country...and will be graduating this year from undergrad.

really hoping to get into a t14, can anyone shed some light? I know about the websites law school numbers and predictors which say I would be 'consider' but realistically what does this mean?

any insight would be appreciated!!
thanks! :mrgreen:

I'd say, yes, you have a chance.

Also, softs (depending on how unique they are) can be very advantageous.

Look at these websites to give yourself a better idea.

NW is unlikley becuase you are below both medians. You would need to meet or exceed their LSAT median to have a chance of admission.

Chicago is very unlikely.

I got Michigan last cycle with numbers similar to yours; sadly you are now 0.01 points below the GPA median and 1 point below the LSAT median. But, if you can spin your softs into solid essays you may have a shot.

TL;DR version, slim chance at Michigan; retake.
