3.1 175 ED penn

Postby senorhosh » Mon Mar 05, 2012 2:32 am

I already have a 171.
Before I retake, I want to know if it's going to make much of a difference.
The only data from LSN is in 2008-2009 with someone with 3.13/176 getting in ED.
(Easier cycle back then??)

Would I have a good shot with a 175-177?
Also I'm looking for anecdotal evidence of rejections/acceptances with similar numbers if there are any, since there seems to be not much data from LSN.

Thanks

Did you already graduate undergrad? Because your GPA is the area to make up ground.

Graduating next quarter. Most I can get is around 3.14 but as a Chem major taking Pchem and Pchem lab, I don't know think that's likely. Most likely GPA is a 3.12

If you are super serious about law school you could push back graduating and take a bunch of easy classes to get A+s but I am not sure if the benefit is worth the cost. No matter what you will be a splitter.

What about an AA male with the same numbers, great softs, and thorough letters of recommendation?
