Multiple LSATs, 3.90 GPA

Postby clasico2012 » Wed Jan 02, 2013 10:20 pm

Hi all,

First time posting here! I'd appreciate your help and advice. Took these LSATS within the past year: 159, 164, and 168. My GPA was 3.90 per LSAC.

Where do you think I have a shot at? And should I include an addendum about the LSATs?

Thank you all very much!

I'd like to know the answer to this too, as I'm under the impression that unless you have a legitimate reason for scoring lower on the first administration(s) you shouldn't write one. Nevertheless, many schools encourage applicants to write an addendum if their scores are ~5 points higher -- albeit, some with the stipulation that they "don't want a list of excuses."

Nice trend, but no, no addendum.

I wouldn't ED anywhere. You have very little chance (20%) at HYSCC, and about a 50/50 chance everywhere else. You'll probably get a lot more WLs than dings just because your GPA is so frigging high. If you have any work experience, NU with money is definitely in the cards.

Alternatively, a solid T20 school will shell out big bucks if you're feeling debt adverse.

EDIT> Just to be clear, no addendum unless you have a fairly legit reason; (you had pneumonia and almost died). People go up in LSAT scores all the time.

Yeah, I wasn't sure about the addendum. The 159 was taken during a pretty bad cold/flu, but I don't think I'll write anything about it. And work experience is not significant, and I have fairly average- maybe above average softs but nothing major. Got fee waivers at almost every school in T14 below CCN... I guess it's worth applying for 50/50 chance, right? Thanks for your help!
