171/3.63 (LSAC)/ 3.79 (UGPA)

Postby lowdmouse » Mon Jul 01, 2013 11:07 pm

Thinking about retaking, not sure. My PT's were around 174/5, topping out with two 180s. Currently looking at Georgetown, Berkeley, UVA, and if I kill a retake, Harvard. Maybe UCLA, Boulder, and Boston.

LSAT: 171
LSAC GPA: 3.63
UGPA: 3.79
(Possible addendum for difference in GPAs).

Your UGPA doesn't matter. Also, enjoy mylsn.info.

Can anyone tell me why Berkeley is looking as hard as Stanford for my stats?

Ps: I hate the recalculated GPAs. Fairer assessment of potential my ass.

The short answer is that the Berkeley admissions committee is composed of GPA whores, whereas Stanford has a more holistic approach. Your 3.63 LSAC GPA is great, but Berkeley's median GPA for the class of 2015, for example, was a 3.81. Your GPA is below their 25th percentile.
