You'd do better playing around with mylsn.info. But here would be my estimates:

1. Penn/Mich ED--already better than 40-50%. Probably pretty solidly in at both.
2. Mich RD--Probably at about 40% already.
3. NYU--171, although your ED chances may be around 40% already.
4. Penn RD--172
5. Columbia/Chicago--173, though CLS will be a little easier with your GPA
6. Berkeley & Harvard--No LSAT will make you anything more than a significant long shot.

I'm currently studying for a retake in October. My current stats are:

* LSAC GPA: 3.53
* LSAT: Cancelled, 170, 169, ??? (October Retake)
* 1 year out of college (two by the time I attend in Fall 2014)
* Working in a top consulting firm, but in a niche field (not management)
* No spectacular softs, only employement and handful of internships
* Solid but not spectacular LOR, PS

What LSAT would I have to get to have a ~40-50% chance to get into the following schools?
Please note the RD/ED options for a few of them.

1) Harvard
2) Chicago
3) Columbia (ED vs RD)
4) NYU (ED vs RD)
5) Berkeley
5) UPenn: (ED vs RD)
6) Michigan (ED vs RD)

Thanks! I really appreciate your input :)


Not a % chance of getting in, but of those in your GPA range (3.5 - 3.55) who DID get in, the lowest LSAT where there seems to be any traction was (the % in parentheses is the % that were at or above this number)

1. Harvard: 177 (42% at or above)
2. Chicago: 171 (88.0% at or above)
3. Columbia ED: 171 (86% at or above)
Columbia RD: 172 (93% at or above)
4. NYU ED: 172 (85% at or above)
NYU RD: 171 (96% at or above)
5. Berkeley: 172 (72% at or above)
6. Penn ED: 170 (87% at or above)
Penn RD: 170 (92% at or above)
7. Michigan ED: Impossible to say
Michigan RD: 169 (90% at or above)

The data is limited, but a 175+ does appear to give you roughly even odds at Berkeley:
