What schools can I get into with these stats?

Postby barberiolisa » Sat Feb 16, 2013 3:32 pm

If you have a 2.35 gpa (very low) because you have had healthproblems in undergrad, having to work full time and care for two very ill parents, but have a 169 LSAT score, is it possible to break the T30-50?

I have heard of people with the gpa getting into Top 20-30 with a 170-172 LSAT, but what if it is a 169?

This will give you a chance to play around with numbers. Also the circumstances concerning your GPA can be explained in a an addendum which can help a bit. Not sure how much though.

LSP is close to worthless in general, but it is utterly useless for splitters.

Use LSN and myLSN.info.

It's possible, yes. you'd have to cast a wide net and hope for the best.
The bigger issue is financial. That GPA means you won't be able to snag a large scholarship, though you might get some money from some schools for that LSAT. Then the question becomes which of those schools are worth paying that much money for.

You haven't even taken the LSAT yet. Quit making a bunch of threads and come back when you have a real score. Your other thread says you expect 165 and now you say 169? Please stop wasting everyone's time.

Yes. You would probably get money at UMN, WUSTL, and other splitter friendly T1 schools.
