1. Get an LSAT.
2. If you feel like playing around with (hypothetical) numbers, follow the yellow brick road: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=170051
3. TFA is nice but your softs will have very minimal effects unless you're a URM. They will only matter if they are stronger than a candidate you are numerically on par with and that school is deciding between the two of you.

uGPA: ~3.65 (3.62 right now, will easily increase to at least 3.65)
LSAT: cold was 160 so I think I could get it to about 165-170, ideally more


-M.Ed at GMU (~3.8 at least, according to what I've heard)
-Teach For America
-Mock Trial team (competing member)
-position in sorority
-socioeconomically underprivileged

I'm wondering if there would be a chance at t14 with my softs (masters and tfa)?


Have you not gotten a masters yet and are planning to do so before law school? If I may ask, why? Why not just stick with that?

Without an LSAT, it would take way to long to sit here and exhaust all the possibilies.

3.65 is pretty good. If you hit median at whatever school from Cornell to Columbia (ranging from 167-172), you have a pretty good shot there.

166 or below gives you basically no shot. 167 opens up Cornell. 169 opens up GULC/Mich. etc

One thing I will recommend is do not plan on taking the LSAT during your 1st year in TFA. You will not have time to study for any of the tests that occur prior to October of your 2nd year. If you plan on applying at the beginning of your 2nd year, I would highly recommend taking it before you move to DC. This will give you an opportunity to retake if necessary.

Tfa corps member here. It will not really help. I didn't get in anywhere I wouldn't have gotten in because of my numbers anyway. The only place it will help is northwestern, and that's not really help, because it just means you meet their work experience requirement.

Are you including ur grad school gpa in your overall? Because I notice u say itll go to 3.65 but you are also getting a masters. If u are, in addition to the LSAT we need your actual ugpa.
