LSU?

Postby Decandler29 » Wed Jan 04, 2012 3:26 pm

Been waiting for a month and it's driving me insane. Every day I waver between hopeful and hopeless.. My GPA is what worries me- its a 2.69, but my LSAT scores are 155 and 159, so average 157. LSU's matrix shows that people in my range have about a 40% chance of getting in. I guess I'm asking if the general consensus is yea or nay in regards to my extra curriculars being good enough to be part of the 40% that gets in- here they are:

Looks like you have good softs. If you get in they will be your saving grace. However, your GPA will really hurt you. A 159 can get you in to LSU without a doubt, I just don't know about it with such a low GPA. Good luck though.
