3.3, 169

Postby dusters » Thu Mar 07, 2013 5:17 am

Weak softs, only part-time work experience for 4 years. Non URM. Would still like to apply this cycle, and would also like to stay in the midwest if possible. What is my best chance at t14? Would I have a better chance if I waited and EDed somewhere next cycle? Also, think I;m in at Minnesota? I've heard they are splitter friendly.

Had those exact same numbers. Apparently it's possible to get into Georgetown, Cornell, and Michigan. Check out lawschoolnumbers.com

You're also in at WUSTL with decent money. And it is possible to get into cornell but unlikely, and it'll likely be at sticker. The unfortunate thing with a 169 is that there is a world of difference between a 169 and a 170. I was a 169/3.7 last cycle and there was a cavernous difference between my results and a 170/3.7. I'd consider retaking to bump yourself up a point (I wasn't able to because the 169 was my third take).

I have a 3.17/169 and got a decent scholarship offer at Minnesota as well as some other schools. I don't want biglaw or big cities, so I'm not interested in the kind of debt I'd get at a T14 even with a higher LSAT, but if you want T14 job opportunities/any shot at biglaw/any job in a large market (NYC/DC/LA/etc) you should retake.
