3.96/166 Berkeley? ED UVA?

Postby BigJohnso » Tue Oct 25, 2011 1:11 pm

I have looked at LSN and it seems like its a toss up, just looking for more insight.

I am a physics major, so maybe the harder curriculum will give me a little boost.

Both of my recommendations are coming from professors that I both had classes for and did research for during summer jobs. They both liked me a lot, so letters should be great. And overall good softs.

I realize the answer will probably to retake, but I really want to go to Berkeley or Cornell and not have to.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Also, Would you recommend me Eding to UVA? All of my stuff will be ready in a couple of weeks, but I dont think UVA's ED has a dealine.

I think that is an almost impossible question to answer. Berkeley is notorious for being unpredictable. I would guess your softs will come into play quite a bit since you seem to be on the margin.

You are one point below Median LSAT for Boalt and two below for Cornell. You GPA is above Berkeley's 75% and way above Cornell's 75. I would say retake only if you are sure you will do better. You have a good chance at both though.
