3.9 GPA, 165 LSAT looking for retake

Postby baa414 » Mon Oct 28, 2013 7:46 pm

I know my LSAT score isn't impressive relative to some other posters, but I wanted the group's opinion on my stats. I think I will shine the most in my application through my softs. I am not writing this to gloat, but I've worked throughout college for a senator, a national political consulting firm and at Facebook.

Basically, my question is this: should I retake in December? I am aiming for HYSCCN and am especially considering GWU (full scholarship) and Georgetown. I think I might be able to get into GWU with these stats but obviously I have greater ambitions given how hard I have worked in college. Would these stats and softs be enough to maybe pull off an upset at a place like HYSCCN?

Extra context: believe me or not, but my highest PT in the week before the exam was a 160. I took the test in part because I had been studying for almost seven months and I was burned out (I started off with a 146 in March 2013). Pulled a 165 on the real thing; going to chalk it up to a great test day and a bit of luck. However, I'm concerned with not being able to get past the hump to 170 in the next month, even with this extra confidence boost.

Also, Hispanic but not URM (thinking of writing kick-ass DS). Can anyone please advise? Thanks!

if you can work at facebook, why go to law school?

for real though, these are pretty standard experiences for law students at the Harvard/Columbia/Yale brand. Your grades are great, and you have good WE.. why not work in consulting after graduation? seems like you'd be a good MBB candidate. Come back to law school in a little while and retake for 169+ and you'll have Columbia/Chicago in the bag.
