AAF What are my chances

Postby meemz » Mon Nov 05, 2012 2:03 pm

My Lsat score was 168

My gpa is really low. 2.5 I had a terrible sophomore year but had an upward trend my last year I got a 3.6 and 3.7 respectively. I had a harder course load that year and took additional 18 credits a semester instead of 16 an addition to auditing a class both semesters.

I'm confidant that U will have good LOR's two of the three will be from deans. One from the Dean of Students and the other from the Dean of Race and Ethnicity. I have excellent relationships with both and they have said that they will help to explain the issues affecting my low GPA and are really happy to write me glowing letters.

I graduated in 2010 and have a few softs I want to add. I was an Americorp, I'm on the board a violent offender recidivism org. I'm I was very involved at my UG.

I on the fence about how much to highlight hardship factors. Some because they are very personal and painful. I consulted with some Alums of my UG who said I should go for it because they are unique positions but I'm not sure.

So far on my list is

Georgetown

George Washington

University of Minnesota

University of Penn ( I know it's a FAR reach but I live in Philly so I want to try)

USC

Temple

Howard


UC Berkeley sent me an invitation to apply but I don't know if it's worth it.

I'm a fee waiver recipient so i get to apply to 4 schools for free and the other for the LSAC credentials fee. I'm not really sure about which schools to apply too so I have been/am taking suggestions.

Calling it now, UMN will offer you about 100k

You should ask WUSTL for a fee waiver too.

Wash U automatically applies a fee waiver for any applicant that received the LSAC fee waiver. I just added them to my school list thanks for the advice.
