Reverse-Splitter: 3.81, 156

Postby fearlessly » Thu Jan 03, 2013 2:36 am

So I was PTing low 160s, and just got Dec. back - 156, fuhh.

Should I wait a year? I was going to apply to:

Berkeley
UVA
Northwestern
Georgetown
BU
BC
Fordham
William & Mary

Non-URM. Good LORs, have a family member who works at Berkeley (not Boalt, but knows someone, no idea if it would hold any weight) that I was hoping might have cushioned if I were a point or two below median/25th, but... hah. Decent softs, nothing too special. One internship.

I feel like all of the above are absolutely hopeless, confirmed by <5% to most on LSN.

FWIW, I reaaally wanted either Berkeley or Fordham.

I think if you guys confirm there's absolutely no hope for all of the above, I'll maybe retake in June then head off to Peace Corps for a few years.

Merp. :(

wait a year. Don't take until Oct. Study your ass off. Don't waste that GPA.

I would say take in June and that gives you the chance to retake again in October if you're still not happy. Retake is the answer, don't waste your GPA and I doubt any of those schools will bidet with that score.

Great job on the GPA.

Retaking in June sounds like a good plan.
