What are my chances?

Postby fdcardoza » Mon Mar 11, 2013 9:10 pm

Hello all,

I was killing myself over my situation because it is kind of a weird one. First off, the school I want to be admitted to is 69th in the country, not a t-20 or even a t-40. Also, my stats are kind of weird. So, here we go:

LSAC GPA: 2.6 Degree GPA:3.1 Major GPA: 3.6 LSAT: 157. URM, 3 A+ LORs, URM, Worked all through undergrad. Son of immigrants, grew up impoverished, etc.

Taken in numbers, I suck. However, as a whole I think my application is competitive. Is my LSAC GPA considered an auto-reject? Has anyone out there gotten in better with worse?

Thanks.

Your LSAT is what's killing you. Retake. A 165+ gives you fairly decentish options.

What kind of URM btw?

Latino male. And apparently, the school I'm gunning for has a strong desire to have a high Latino population.

A 165 is probably doable. I have hit higher in practice. However, I don't think they will take in any new scores. I talked to an admin, and he said the median LSAT this year was looking like a 155.

Retake, get 165+, T14 here you come.
