159 LSAT, 4.0 GPA, International

Postby boblawblog » Fri Jan 04, 2013 1:58 pm

any thoughts as to which schools would be appropriate to apply? tuition isn't a problem, and no retakes

Why no retake?

If you have an outstanding reason not to retake, then apply to Arizona and down

No retakes is rough -- Wait out the cycle and ED to UVA (though you only have about a 50%-33% chance or so of getting it). When's the earliest you can retake?

An American 4.0 could. Yours wont be factored into the rankings so its basically irrelevant.

Your current school range is like 40-80.

You should retake the LSAT

I thought your GPA was American -- unfortunately, a 159 and an effectively "blank" GPA will not get you into UVA. Retake the LSAT for sure.

Actually, spend most of your waking moments studying for the LSAT. A 173 would put you at both Harvard's medians, which gives you a very solid chance there. That's basically the only thing holding you back right now.
