169 / 3.53

Postby yiruri83 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 3:56 pm

I retook the LSAT in October and received 169. I was hoping to get 170+ but oh well...it is what it is. What are my chances at T7-14?

I'm a resident in VA so I'm hoping that helps me out at UVA admission decisions and other than that, it looks like both of my GPA and LSAT are on 25th percentiles...Am I out of luck for the second half of T14? What about T15-20?

Also, I graduated in '08 and working full-time at asset management company right now. After I graduate law school, I want to get into M&A advisory business. Do you guys know any law schools within my reach known for sending their graduates in that industry?

I appreciate your feedbacks and comments.

thanks for your response!!
I already applied to UVA with regular decision...thought I would not be a suitable candidate for ED but might stand a chance for regular decision. Is it possible to switch from regular to ED?

Other way around. ED improves your chances. And yes you can switch

Do I just send them an e-mail saying that I want to switch to ED from regular? How would the admission committee look at this? positively or negatively?
