Military GPA 3.39 LSAT 163

Postby Dhomer60 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 6:36 am

GPA dropped from 3.7 to 3.39 because I got cocky and tried to learn Mandarin for my required language.

LSAT taken on 3 hours sleep, luckily I stumbled through it with a 163 (though I was testing around 168).

Lame excuses aside, I have limited funds for applications and I'm hoping the military background will give me at least enough soft skills to wiggle my way into the 20-35, shooting for UW madison, but what are some of my better options in this range. I know T-14 is a waste of time.

I've heard that military is a plus.

Bump. I'm an Army officer and I want to know more about this supposed bump.

Just started looking up, my transfer GPA brought me up to an LSAT GPA of 3.7. Got an outside chance at the bottom of T14 with an epic personal statement

Retake, and sleep this time for God's sake.

Do admissions committees view currently serving reservists and guardsmen who havent yet deployed vastly differently from vets with deployments? I've read a few things on this board that have divergent views on that point. Some say they only care or give you a URM-like bump if you've been deployed a few times and have a CIB with a personal statement that rocks. Others say any service at all is treated almost all the same.

Obviously they want to get as many vets in as they can, and rightly so, but I feel like the run of the mill adcomm folks see a military-oriented personal statement with the 'Military Service' tab filled out on the application and treat everything the same; and they shouldn't.
