3.7 GPA 170

Postby Poo-T » Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:37 am

3.7 LSDAS (3.9 at Community College, but only a 3.35 at University - rising trend in grades)
159 LSAT
170 LSAT

Chances at:
Duke
UNC ($$$$)
Wake Forest ($$$$)

Thanks guys.

Also the university was UNC if that means anything.

At least tell me this, what are most law schools going to consider more: the LSDAS or the two transcripts separately?

They will only care about your LSAC GPA.

According to the law school numbers, Duke looks 50/50. But, on the other hand, some guy with similar numbers in another thread (with a slightly lower GPA) is being told that he doesn't really have a shot.

The point of rad lulz's post is that anecdotal experience means nothing outside of URM admissions. Trust the data-driven sites like lawschoolnumbers.com. Anything that anybody else tell you is just speculation.

That's a good point. I prefer what the numbers say anyways. Thanks.

You're a lock at Duke, and probably with some $$. Enjoy.

You also have good shots at the rest of the T14 from NYU on down. You should apply to them all.

For real? :D
Is anyone else of a similar opinion?

I'll probably apply to NYU and maybe another T14 that seems interesting

See: http://myLSN.info/oyc2ub
89% chance of acceptance at Duke.

You should apply to every T14 from Columbia on down. Even if you don't want to go there, if they give you scholarship $ you can use them for leverage for scholarship negotiations at the schools you would prefer to go to.
