Columbia? An option?

Postby calypso4 » Wed Jan 11, 2012 3:34 pm

I keep looking at law school numbers and seeing that some URM's under 160 have been accepted or wait-listed to Columbia. With a 156/4.0 and great soft factors, do you think I have a shot?

I absolutely think you have a shot, but maybe not an outstanding one because of the lower LSAT. You'll get into a T14 though. Good luck!

156? Why would you not study harder and retake?

To answer your ?, most likely you wont get in with that LSAT

Almost certainly not. I don't see it on your profile either, so if you're considering applying this late in the cycle, I'd change my answer to definitely not.

Retake, get into HYS, prosper.

I dont know if I believe this profile (Im thinking its a fake) or the person would have probably explained why they were such an outlier. It would take a lot for those scores to get in, I mean HYS do have to worry about the person being able to do well once they get in.

And it swiftly vanishes.

That profile was the only sub 160 to get in to Columbia in the past three cycles, so... yeeeah.

I just dont see sub 160 making the cut. You usually dont see that for any T14 (usually)
