170 LSAT/ 3.6 GPA

Postby Goses » Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:42 am

Here we go:

LSAT: 170
GPA: 3.6

Ethnicity: Caucasian, and Jewish (just giving all the details)

School: I'm American, but I've attended college abroad in the United Kingdom at a top University (top 3)
Major: International Relations
Recommendations: 1 from a professor, most likely of decent quality, probably not stellar
1 from a partner at a major New York City law firm, of very high quality

Essay: Pretty good, not the best essay they'll read, still needs a little work

In terms of jobs, covers past 4 summers, two summers as an intern in a major financial company, one of those summers in London. Other two summers spent as intern in a major NYC law firm (hence the partner's recommendation)
Apart from employment, I have leadership roles in a few student societies, including the campus Law Society

The Current list of schools:

University of Virginia
Boston University
WIlliam & Mary

What are my chances looking like at the higher end of schools? (NYU, Columbia, UPenn, Cornell, Georgetown)

Thanks for any and all help/advice! It's much appreciated.

These, like anyones response, are my guesses.

NYU: WL, 50/50
Columbia: Denied (maybe WL)
UPenn:In with ED, maybe in RD
University of Virginia:Good chance with ED, WL RD
Boston University:In $$
WIlliam & Mary
