3.85(UC Davis Economics GPA), 167, good soft factors

Postby jwhittaker36 » Sun Mar 31, 2013 8:14 pm

I am a UC student who has a 3.85 GPA and scored a 167 on the October LSAT. I am also the president of an award winning fraternity and am the number one rated 3rd year cadet and Ranger Challenge Captain in my Battalion's Army ROTC. I will be applying in the fall and was wondering if anyone had an idea of my chances at the following schools, or had any other suggestions.

University of Virginia(ED)
UC Berkeley
Georgetown
Cornell
Texas
USC
Vanderbilt
UCLA

Likely in at Cornell down. Out at UVA and Berk (even ED).

Berkeley could be in play.

You should definitely retake, and don't ED UVA. Take the LSAT in June, then again in October and apply with the best of those three scores. None of your softs matter, and to the extent that they do, none of them matter more than a 1pt increase in your LSAT.

Imagine if you got a 173 in October and applied with 3.85/173. You'd be looking at close to a full ride at nearly all of these schools. When will you have another chance in your life to make $250,000 in six months?

My cycle says you're wrong.

Those numbers+URM are in, don't see it for a non-URM

trip is right, Cornell on down, could maybe snag Duke but that is it.

Definitely retake
