Do I have a chance at a T6?

My work is related to the law in a very unusual way that I will address in my PS.

Speaking as one who has a Ph.D. in the humanities, it will not make any difference in admissions. You will perform exactly as your numbers suggest.

Applying now? I think CCN ED deadlines are passed and its late to begin with. If now, I'd say very very slim.

If you take a year off, maaaybe possible with ED. I thought I read some 165-167 ed'ers got into one of the CCN, but they might have been URM...

you're delusional if you think they are non-URM.

OP: you need to get a much better LSAT score if you want CCN, much less any T14.

At the moment, you have a shot at Cornell, UVA ED, and maybe Northwestern ED. Best of Luck.

Yes, you have a chance. Not a slam dunk though.

Yeah, definitely not a slam dunk. I am actually a grad student at HYS, and I was hoping to go to my school so I don't have to relocate; but I know I have a snowball's chance in that regard.

I hear you, man. I didn't want to create a thread, but I (perhaps foolishly) felt that I might be an unusual case.

I feel you bro, it sucks, but you're not. That's the game we play.
