3.7/ 167/ URM (African American)

Postby Dr. Dre » Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:33 am

My dream school is UPENN because of their Environmental Law program. Also because I think I have a chance of getting in (unlike the T5), AND location (I <3 PHILLY).

because it's not unreasonable to see you get CCN, maybe even H, given your URM status. according to lsac, there are about 40 to 65 black male or female applicants with a 3.5+ UGPA/ 165+ LSAT profile. (http://www.utexas.edu/vp/irla/Documents/ACR%20LSAC.pdf) HYSCCN took about 65 black male applicants last year; of them, about 35 went to HYS.

Because maybe another 40-50 total AA applicants in the country will have your number set or better so Harvard is likely and CCN is almost a lock.

Yea dude, go to Harvard. If I were you I would go to Stanford, the weather is nice there. You shouldn't go to Penn anyways. The whole Sandusky/Paterno scandal is really going to screw Penn's employment numbers. I wouldn't be surprised if they fall out of the T14 because of it.

I think you are equivocating Pennsylvania State with University of Pennsylvania. The former not T14.

He's joking brah. It's a long running gag that the Sandusky thing will affect Penn's ranking. No one actually believes that the law school will be dinged by the Football program's issues. It's just a shame they had to take that statue out of the law library. And, I know several people who made JoePa an integral part of their Why Penn apps when this whole thing was breaking last year. Awkward.

I still don't feel that confident. I have weaknesses in my app.

(1) I spent my summers working at Jack in the box to help pay tuition the following school year

(2) I am K-JD

C&F issues? If not, you're going to Harvard.

1: is a good story.
2: you and half of the class

You really need to work on this self confidence problem.

Not sure what part of "there are maybe 40 other AAs, tops, with your numbers or better in the whole country and Harvard admits about 60-80 AAs per cycle" you're not getting.

Seriously doesn't matter. And the first point isn't even a negative.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. I don't have major confidence issues but I do think of things too much. I will be applying to the T14 in October. Best of luck to everyone applying as well!

1) They don't care. Numbers are the most important thing (and URM status).

No discussing AA in the on-topics. GTFO.
