169/3.2/2 Yrs WE - ED GULC / NU?

Postby jameseleven » Tue Oct 25, 2011 3:29 pm

169 from the October 2011 LSAT, kind of missed out on that awesome curve
3.2 GPA
non-URM

Softs:
- Grade distribution is a definite upward trend (like reading the alphabet backwards)
- Various internships during school, 2 Years Full Time WE (3 at Matriculation), Regulatory Agency work experience
- LOR/PS are all PI related

Meaningless Softs:
- Double Major (Biochemistry/Sociology)
- UG Organization Leadership
- No priors!

I think I have a solid shot at WUSTL but regarding my shots at GULC and NU, which one give me the greater chance with an ED? I know that I have a very slim chance at either but given my work experience would NU be the better option? I know NU's got that whole scolly thing for ED but my LSAT's a bit low...

LSN basically told me that one person made it with my numbers into GULC (didn't indicate ED though)

Thanks for any help!

Your 169 is below the median at either school. I honestly don't think you're in at GT, unless you apply PT, and even then it's close. Northwestern does like WE, but at this point I think WE is the norm not the exception, so the fact that you have WE won't impress them.

That makes sense, I didn't really expect my WE to push me too far into NU, thanks.

If I was to throw out an ED out there, is there a school that I should really push for? I think my GPA is too low for USC/UCLA and I don't think I need to go all out to ED into WUSTL. Anything else in the T20+, that I should try for (except Vandy)?

W/o an LSAT in the 170s, both Northwestern and G-town look kind of bleak, retake in December?
