169 / 3.65 PLEASE HELP!!! much appreciated :)

Postby tmatsushita » Wed Oct 26, 2011 12:26 am

I took the LSAT three times: 166, 162, 169.
My GPA is 3.65.

I am trying to figure out what schools I should apply to, but I'm having difficulties...
I've extensively looked through LSP and LSN, but it's still hard deciding where to apply.
Hopefully you can chance me and tell me if I should not even apply to some (because I know some are extreme reaches/safeties)
AND if you can tell me a good strategy regarding EDing.
Fortunately, money is not an issue for me at all.

Here's my list (sorry it's kind of long):

Columbia
Chicago
NYU
Michigan
Penn
Berkeley
UVA
Duke
Cornell
GULC
Texas
UCLA
Vandy
USC
WashU
BU
UC Davis
BC

It would help me so much!

I would love to know too. I have a lower gpa than you, 3.4 but have a 169 as well. My list looks exactly the same as yours, though I'm just applying to Columbia, Chicago, Penn, Mich, UVA as "reach" schools - not hoping for anything. I was thinking of aiming for Cornell.

Cornell is probably in, if you send EA.

Can't say much else.

Thanks for the responses!

Do I really have no chance at Michigan, UVA, and GULC?
I know if I had a 170, I would have a great shot at UVA ED, but would a 169 really make me an auto-deny?
How much would it help if I ED at GULC. I really want T14.

CCN and probably Boalt are out. Everything else I'd say is fair game. Lots of 169s get into Michigan and your GPA isn't too bad for it. If that's your dream school, I'd ED. All the rest are worth an app. Some (e.g., WUSTL) are more certain than others, but that's a good, albeit broad, target list.

Michigan IS my dream school, but I go to a quarter-system undergrad so i graduate in June. That makes EDing at Michigan impossible because of its summer start :cry:

But I'll still be happy with any T-14. Where do you think I should ED? I was thinking UVA and then GULC if I get denied from UVA.
