3.8 GPA, What LSAT for BC

Postby kdoyon812 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 1:55 pm

I have a 3.8 LSDAS GPA. I am anxiously awaiting my December LSAT score...can anybody tell me what LSAT score I would probably need in order to have a reasonable chance at BC? I am a social work major at my state school, international study/intern experience, not URM.

Law School Predictor says that 166+ is admit, 164-165 is strong consider, and 160-163 is consider. Can anyone attest to this from personal experience if it sounds about correct?

I'm not sure I would believe that 166 is an automatic admit...maybe with your high GPA. 166 is the median score for BC. And a 3.8 is above their 75th GPA. I'm applying there too with a 166 and a slightly lower GPA. Crossing my fingers! Good luck!

It's a slam dunk with a 166/3.8, unless you're applying late cycle.

Hmmm ok that makes me nervous since I'm only just now sending them my app. I have a 3.72 and 166. Would this be considered late? I sent it today...

I wouldn't call it late since dec scores have yet to be released. I'd call it about the end of "normal".


Agreed. When looking at last year's graphs. People started having trouble (characterized as those with strong numbers receiving atypicaly waitlists instead of acceptances) when they would apply mid-to-late January. I view New Years as the breaking point between "oh ok, it's kind of on time" and "ehhh, I better hurry up"
