167, 165, 171 and 4.0

Postby AmoryB » Mon Oct 24, 2011 10:27 pm

With these statistics and average to above average softs for the t-14 what are my chances at these schools? I am very familiar with lawschoolnumbers.com and TLS and I have certainly done my own research. However does anyone have any insight into the impact of multiple LSAT scores on schools in the top 14 and top 6 in particular. Additionally, would this impact scholarship opportunities? Thanks!

I think you'll be fine. Just apply as early as you can.

Even with 3 scores?

Harvard doesn't like multiple LSATs & NYU averages multiple LSAT scores.

OP, you've got an ok chance at H and a good chance at NYU.

Just read the law school profiles on this website (TLS). For NYU go to the bottom of the profile: Multiple LSATs are averaged. Harvard's profile also states that multiple LSAT scores are averaged.

Every school also claims to practice holistic admissions.

OP: Do you want to believe NYU & Harvard adcomms written profiles or internet posters. I never wrote whether or not you had a chance of admission; of course, you have a chance, but it isn't going to be based on a 171/4.0 according to the Harvard & NYU profiles.

I am fully aware of the rhetoric and official "policies" regarding multiple LSAT scores from these schools; however, based on anecdotal evidence from Harvard and NYU specifically during the last few cycles, there seems to be some evidence to the contrary. I was wondering if anyone has any additional information as to their experiences with multiple LSAT scores with t-14 schools. Again, thank you for your help; I really appreciate it.

It shouldn't change your cycle at any rate. Apply to both regardless. Certainly we can agree you're close enough to the edge.
