GPA 3.55, LSAT 175 Chances?

Postby sports » Tue Oct 25, 2011 4:24 pm

Hey, I just got back my LSAT scores and I am looking for advice about where to apply. I'm set on going to a T-14 if possible. Is applying to YHS a waste of time? Are schools like Columbia realistic? I am not a URM and I am just finishing my last yr of undergrad in the Honors program of a pretty strong state university. Thanks for the help

Also my softs are decent. I have had a couple strong internships (1 in law, 1 in politics). My LR's will probably be around average.

You're not going to be in at Yale (they denied many, many people with stellar numbers and softs). Columbia you have a fair shot, Harvard not so sure, but can't hurt--I think you'd get waitlisted or accepted at least.

Hmm...I think this advice is questionable.

OP: I'd say you're almost def in at CCN down, might have the TEENIEST chance at H. Just blanket the T14 with apps and you'll do great. Good luck.

It seems like HYS have a GPA floor of around a 3.7ish, unless URM. I think you have a pretty solid shot at Columbia though, after looking at LSN.

OP We're getting gpa floored at HYS. Looks like you'll get at least one of CCN RD and def one if you ED. Everywhere else except Berkeley and maybe UVA RD is in.

Thanks for the help! Is there any chance of receiving money from a lower T-14 like Georgetown?

Numbers twin!

Doesn't seem like $ from Georgetown is out of the question seeing as CCN is very likely.
