162/3.4 (Mitigating Factors)

Postby WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot » Sun Jul 22, 2012 5:50 pm

I appreciate any advice regarding where to apply. I’m unsure how adcomms will interpret my GPA and therefore am unsure where, i.e., in what vicinity, to look.


I took a medical leave of absence after my fifth semester of UG (BU, political science), though first had weak fourth and fifth semesters. My GPA was 3.16 when I left. I reentered after one year and raised it to 3.40 (twelve courses after reentry, mostly upper levels, GPA of these: 3.83)

Other info

LSAT: 162 (PT avg. 166, considering October retake)


Softs: Grant writer for NPO devoted to the relevant medical issue, three marathons (most recently as a fundraiser for the same NPO), congressional intern, community development center volunteer and intern

Thoughts? Benefit from app decline?

Not retaking would be a terrible decision.
