What are my chances for Emory?? - Patent Agent w/ Ph.D.

Postby screamn02 » Fri Jan 25, 2013 1:58 pm

I have:
164 LSAT
3.05 GPA from top engineering school
Ph.D. in organic chemistry from top program
Admitted to USPTO Bar
Work at AmLaw100 Firm as a Patent Agent with an amazing rec from a senior partner.

I just applied early January. Any thoughts on likelihood of admission to Emory and/or scholarship $ there?? Would love to live in Atlanta!

Probably not, definitely no money. Never know how they'll take those softs though.

The good news is, with those stats, you probably won't have too much trouble finding a job post-grad.

The bad news is, a 164 LSAT is not enough to get you into Emory with money. I'd for sure retake regardless, but figure UGA is a lot more likely than Emory, since Emory doesn't generally like to dip that far down in uGPA numbers.

EDIT> You do have Atlanta/south ties, right? Otherwise all this advice goes out the window.
