3.62, Dec LSAT

Postby cynthiad » Sat Sep 22, 2012 1:19 pm

My GPA is 3.62, I'm taking the LSAT in December. What score do I have to get for T6 schools? Am I out at YHS b/c of my GPA no matter what I score? Also, planning to work for a year or two before I apply. Softs/LORs decent but probably won't make me stand out.

Have you tried looking at http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com? It is a really fun tool and it will answer all of your questions!

I think your out of HYS without a 175.

I think you can get T6 with 173.

Yes, I've spent way to much time inputting potential scores into that website. I got a 178 on my first practice exam, but I don't know if I can replicate that on the actual test, I've heard people don't do as well on the real thing as on practices.

I've heard the same thing.. In my opinion, it all comes down to whether or not you are a good test-taker. Some people have the ability to go in unprepared and do amazingly well. Others get nervous and fail miserably. It depends.

LSP is pretty worthless. This example provides a case in point: A non-URM with a 3.62 GPA has essentially zero chance of getting into YS, regardless of LSAT.

Spend time looking at LSN and myLSN for much more useful info.

A 171 will give you a good shot at NYU; you're basically a lock with a 172. A 172 gives you a very good shot at CLS. Chicago, with its small class, is harder to predict, but a 172 puts it in play.

Harvard is more in play now than it was 2-3 years ago for someone with that GPA, but it's still a long shot. And it only becomes a long shot if you get close to a 180, otherwise forget it.
