3.71/170

Postby UserNameHere » Tue May 21, 2013 9:33 pm

Top-15 Undergrad school ranking

Political Science major w/ college honors (not latin) and a minor in Legal Studies (was pretty bogus, but it's on there)

Taking a year off to work on various small political projects.

Hoping to get into a school in Bay Area, Chicago, or DC. Is Stanford reaching? What about G'town and N'western?

Stanford's a pretty big reach, NW and GULC are good bets.

Out at Stanford and possibly Berkeley, assuming not URM. Should be in at Georgetown and Northwestern. Retake if you really want Bay Area.

ETA: Honestly with your GPA Stanford is probably a reach with almost any LSAT. I was 3.75/177 and got straight dinged there. They are super GPA focused.

If you had at least a 3.88, I'd say you'd have a decent shot at S.

3.71/172 here.

In at Georgetown and NU w/ $$. Id say you are set at both as well with your WE, but less $ due to less desirable LSAT.

WL at Stanford. Lowest non-urm on the WL spreadsheet last time I checked, so theres generally not much hope for us 3.7ers. I wouldnt count on CC either with a 170 & B is unpredictable, but you should be in at MVP and down with strongish chance at NYU.

I would say depending on applications, CCN might be in play. Although I agree with the previous sentiment of you've got MVP and below (with the exception of Berkeley, they are a total wildcard). You can look at my cycle in my profile (lower GPA by 0.1, same LSAT) for an idea of where I'm coming from.

Just saying, I think well prepared applications and putting in a ton of effort can make a difference. And if apps are down in the same way they were this year, who knows what will happen.

EDIT: and if you just do this cycle on MyLSN, much different outcome.

NYU is definitely in play here, esp. off the WL; that chart is deceptive. NYU is taking tons of 170/sub-median (prolly anticipating a 1-2 pt LSAT decline) so a 170/median should have a decent shot if next cycle repeats this one.

CC are still unlikely as I said before, but worth the applications.

Stanford definitely out, Berkeley almost certainly out. NU and GULC you're probably good.

As everyone else said, mylsn.info
