HELP! Should I apply?

Postby hope14 » Sat Sep 01, 2012 10:43 pm

I am an URM, 3 years out of school with work experience since graduation at a Big 4 accounting firm in tax. I am taking the December LSAT (due to lack of time to adequately study before Oct) and applying if I score high enough. I want to be in CA so mainly looking at USC/UCLA. I graduated with a 3.5 gpa and received my BS in accounting and MS in business tax and I am a CPA. I recently started studying and have scored in the 150-155 range. I am just wondering what score would make me highly competitive for USC/UCLA given my circumstances?? Should I even be looking into T-14? Please any advice is highly appreciated.

What kind of URM?

Regardless, Scoring median would pretty much make you a lock.

160+ USC and UCLA
165+ and you will be a lock at most of the t14.
167+ HYS

What is the lowest I can score and still comfortably apply? Also, how much does taking the Dec test affect my chances?

160 to be on the safe side, especially since your apps will be out after Thanksgiving.

Are you also considering Berkeley and Stanford? You will need at least high 160s for both.
