171/3.4(engineering)

Postby confused428 » Mon Jul 01, 2013 7:12 pm

got 171 on lsat, was averaging 174-175 on PT, have a 3.4 undergrad in engineering ivy league school, top engineering dept in my field, 3.9 in masters (engineering, same school). work experience in biotech and research. good softs. also female, not URM (I know that matters in engineering but no idea about law haha) just trying to see if I should retake lsat. want to go into IP and T14 school. looking at michigan, nyu, duke, cornell, boston, columbia and GW. no california schools. should I bother retaking the LSAT? I think I could probably score a couple points higher but not sure. any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Any reason Northwestern isn't on your list? They love work experience and forgive low GPAs.

You might overperform a bit because of your background but you should expect your odds to look something like this right now:

Also in at BU/BC and GW.

Retake for 174 and you have a much better shot at NYU, not to mention money at some of the other schools (again, note Northwestern):
