What are my chances?

Postby theroyalmaster » Wed Apr 25, 2012 4:11 pm

GPA: 3.85
LSAT: 170
UG: High school slacker, started off at CC transferred to TTT (consistent good grades)
Softs: Nothing meaningful. Community volunteer jobs here and there

URM AA Male

Straight from UG. Idk if this counts as WE, but before starting at CC I did City Year. Any chance at Stanford? I'm enamored with the sunshine and lack of grades.

LawSchoolPredictor says you're a strong consider at Stanford. Write a killer PS and make sure your application isn't written in crayon, and I think you'll be going.

LawSchoolPredictor also says you're an admit at SAMford. Congrats!!

As an AA male, you are a lock at Harvard. Good shot at Stanford and Yale, but they're crapshoots for everyone. Probably big money at CCN.

Good luck and congrats on great numbers.

I'm not an expert on URM cycles but you have incredible numbers for a URM. I mean, I'm talking about "i would bet you get the HYS sweep" type of numbers.

Definitely H. Very similar situation, slightly higher GPA. Hope to see you next URM cycle. :)

EDIT> Make sure to factor in your CC grades, or you'll be in for a nasty surprise come LSDAS cumulative.

EDIT 2> Also, HYS + Berkeley don't do letter grades.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I feel much better about my chances now.

To the above poster, my CC grades are already factored in.
