Severe Splitter Chances

Postby TheCurrantThyme » Wed Jul 03, 2013 1:55 am

2.7/177 Still in Undergrad. No WE. Non-URM.

Any prayer at T14?
Any Scholly from T30?
Any Additional Advice?

How did you find the time in undergrad to study for a 177? I have always wondered how you peeps accomplish this feat.

Get a job and explain you will have a years work experience before classes start and hope for NU.
Decent shot at NU anyway, but couldn't hurt to try.

I always wondered how people that studied to get a 177 could end up with a 2.XX in the first place. I mean, grats on the 177, but wth happened to your GPA dude?

To answer your question, UVA and NU seem to be your best bet in the T14s. I think you should still blanket the T14. The 177 makes you a rare commodity. Good GPAs are a dime in a dozen.

This. If I knew that I could easily crank out a LSAT score like that, it would have been models, bottles and keggers all during undergrad for me. Instead, I was at the library while everyone else was watching my T-25 ranked football team 5 minutes down the road in the stadium. And while everyone was at beaches during spring break looking at half naked women all day, I was reading books at the library and daydreaming on a daily basis about giving myself a shot at getting a thick envelope from Harvard Law School.

I studied CS and I have a 3.2 (3.0 LSAC GPA). Take Calc 1 - 3 with no curve. Class average was a 68. I ended up with a C+. No curve.

Take classes like Linux Kernel. Get owned. End up with a B. 2nd highest grade in class. Lol 3k lines of code? Scrub.

Take Linux Kernel II. Get owned more. End up with a B+ and recommendation from an executive (of IT) of one of the largest insurance companies in the world.

Take advanced networking. WTF IS THIS MATH. End up with a B. Be one of a handful of people out of maybe 30 students to finish the final project.

Worst part is that with my "mediocre" GPA I was getting interviews with big name companies. Law schools on the other hand look at me like I'm a moron. I repeated one class and that was because in my first 1.5 years of college I had terrible medical issues and I ended up not going to one class because it was 3 hours long in the morning and I would get physically sick. I got a D in it and I Retook and got an A.

If I knew I would be interested in doing law I would have gone to a liberal arts college and studied poetry or something.

My friend went to another college where they had curves and he has a 3.7 GPA in CS. I am so sad :< The only class I recall that had a curve was accounting... lol...

You have a shot at some T14s if you can get up above a 3.0. At a 2.7 you have almost no chance unless you work for a few years and apply to NU.

Good chance of scholarships from UMN and WUSTL.

Focus on getting your grades up. Nothing you can do in UG at this point will help you more than getting straight As until you graduate.

Oh, so your GPA isn't sub-3.0... that changes things. Keep it above a 3.0 and ED NU.

if you're still in UG...just don't graduate. Seriously, keep your graduation requirement at bay and just take a bunch of classes at a community college for like 1 year and bring it up to a 3.0+.

You post way too much to be this uninformed about NU ED. Also, that wasn't OP you were responding to.

OP here. Thanks for the replies. Will this really work? I only have a few credit hours left, so won't law schools view this negatively?

None of the schools you are targeting would care. HYS might, but thats not gonna happen anyway.

That was me sophomore year. Then I got a girlfriend and it all went downhill from there.
