170/3.15 URM (PR)

Postby Fermin » Mon Mar 11, 2013 10:53 pm

Note: This post is almost exactly the same as my earlier one except that I just had all the Fs retroactively turned into Ws with documentation from my doctor. I forget who suggested this to me, but thanks! I hope it makes a difference.

Puerto Rican URM. Initially went to a top 50 school for a few years, but ended up dropping out with barely a 2.0 (featuring quite a few Fs and Ws) due to mental health issues. Went to community college (graduated with a 3.75) and then state school (graduated with a 3.65). Have had quite a few internships including a private wealth management internship at a bulge bracket bank and an investment banking summer analyst position at a middle market bank. Have been out of school for about a year and work at a real estate investment firm/property management company.

I'd like to avoid taking the LSAT again. Also, I plan on working for the next year, which gives me about 2 years WE. What am I looking at?

Make sure to send in your transcripts to have LSAC compute a new gpa if the 3.15 was before you got your grades changed.

Nothing wrong with having it in this forum though I will move it if OP really wants.

Forgot to say check out lawschoolnumbers.com

You have a shot T14 schools. With your work experience I would say you have a good chance at Northwestern. NU just put out a report that they are dropping class sizes though which may or not affect your outcome (so is most everyone else).

URM cycles are different. You can get into schools w/ lower numbers than traditional applicants. And your 170 stands out. I forget the actual number, but statistically you scored somewhere in the top 10% of URM test takers. I'm too lazy to search for the thread.

You can retake to try and get some more scholarship money, but you don't have to.
