157/172, 3.82, Chances for T-14?

Postby blandusername » Mon Oct 28, 2013 8:15 pm

Hi all,

Long time lurker, first time poster. So my story is that I took the Oct. LSAT last year, got 157. Retook this month, got 172. GPA is 3.82, non-URM, and awful softs, but I'll spin them well in my PS. Stanford, Chicago, and Columbia are my reaches, but Berkeley, UCLA, Cornell, and Georgetown were where I was aiming for before I got back my score. From everything I've read on here about multiple scores, I should be good for UCB/UCLA/Cornell/Georgetown, correct? What are my chances for t-6?

And also to throw in another question, based on what I've read I wasn't planning on writing an addendum to explain my score, but I did better than expected (was shooting for 167-170), so with a 15 point discrepancy, ought I to address the difference at all? I don't really have any extenuating circumstances to explain the difference, other than I had less time to prep last year and wasn't all that ready, which just sounds like an excuse, but I'm also afraid someone will hold that 157 against me.

You're most likely in at Columbia and Chicago so don't sweat those. You'll have big $$ from schools like Northwestern, Duke, and UVA.

Chances aren't great at Stanford, but you have a shot.

I think score-based addenda are largely on their way out unless there's a specific cause for the lower score.
