167/3.78

Postby sinfiery » Tue Oct 25, 2011 1:37 am

First LSAT, 167
GPA = 3.78 in Finance
Mid tier state school

Softs: Some volunteer work through a couple of organizations, worked a couple months during college at Walmart

that's it, very lacking


Just curious what I would be looking at if I were to apply, as most calculators with these scores are at an unreliable % or the daunted "consider"


Also; I was PTing 172+...most likely will retake and set me back a year as I graduate in May, but I think it would be worth it if I can improve my score ~5 points.

I have similar numbers with a slightly lower GPA. the reaches I'm applying to are UPenn or NU ED (big reach), Cornell, UT, and I think we have a decent shot at $ at schools like Vanderbilt/GWU/Boston/Fordham/WashU/Illinois

I'm no expert on admissions but those are most of the schools to which I'll be applying

With a 167 you probably have a better shot at UT than Vanderbilt.

Agreed. UT is an excellent option. Id put that at the top of your list.
