166 / 3.61/4.3 (top university in Korea) / WE 7 yrs

Postby 11am » Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:15 am

Dear all,

I have tried to get a sense of how my chances are based on previous posts, but still need some kind advice.

LSAT: 164 and 166
GPA: 3.61 on a 4.3 scale from a top university in Korea (yes, I am Korean). Am not sure how you can compare this with the GPA from US undergrad schools, but I did get a comment that my GPA is competitive from a T14 admission team
Work experience: 7 years in private equity and investment banking at a top tier US investment bank

What are my chances getting in the T14? Especially, Berkeley, UPenn, Michigan, Northwestern, and Cornell.
I guess NYU or Columbia and Chicago are out of my reach?
For Northwestern, I am debating if I should apply for the accelerated JD program with my GMAT score or ED with my current LSAT score.
Any thoughts on ED for UPenn and Michigan?

If I decide to retake in December I guess a score that is below 170 would not make a huge difference to my application package?

Many thanks in advance!

Thanks, sokomofo.
Understand your point.
Was hoping for something more encouraging, but it is what it is.
Retaking the LSAT. Ugghh!!
