163 LSAT and 3.9 GPA - Chances of getting into SMU?

Postby reh » Tue Jul 02, 2013 5:51 pm

Just took the June LSAT and got a 163. I have a 3.9 GPA. What are my chances of getting into Southern Methodist University?

The SMU results at lawschoolnumbers.com include both full-time and part-time applicants, but looking at the graph, literally everyone with higher than a 161 has been accepted so far, some with uGPAs as low as 2.5

If you click on the individual dots, some of them identify that they applied part-time. I don't know if part-time applications are all annotated that way, though.

you'll probably get in but you should retake. at the very least get above smu's full-time median (164) so you can get $$ out of them. this would also give you other options, including schools with better employment outcomes. your gpa can get you a lot of good options, but your lsat is holding you back.

You won't have a problem getting into SMU, but if you were to retake the LSAT and score even three points higher, you'd have a great shot at a school like UT with a bit of cash:

You've got a phenomenal GPA. Don't let your LSAT score hold you back.
