175 (hypothetical)/ 3.3 LSAT

Postby orwhateverthatmeans » Tue Oct 29, 2013 10:49 pm

First and foremost: all apologies for the "hypothetical" LSAT score. I'm writing the test in December so I have nothing official to report on yet but am scoring in said range after studying for 8+ months.
More info:
3.3 GPA (State School)
Graduated in '12 but have been working a restaurant job ever since.
Oh, not to mention, I have a criminal record (not eligible for expungement despite charges being misdemeanors).
As stated, I will be taking the December LSAT and thus will not be submitting applications until said scores come out.
So, what are my chances?
My delusional hopes:
NYU:Waitlist/mid-summer acceptance (uh, or something...)
Georgetown:Waitlist/mid-summer acceptance
NU:Waitlist/mid-summer acceptance
GWU: IN
William and Mary: IN
Emory: IN
I don't think some of these predictions would have been too crazy had I a) not had a criminal record b)applied earlier in the cycle.
My other question is, in the battle of splitters, do you guys speculate that hard numbers trump subjective factors? Because subjectively speaking, I'm a degenerate on paper. E.G. does 3.3/175/criminal record beat 3.3/172/ clean slate? Are schools that number hungry? Hell, I'd be humbled to go to even GWU or Emory but would be disappointed if I cranked out a stellar LSAT score only to be denied by those schools because I was a dumb teenager.

Finis.

McGruff, you deserve a trophy for this.

OP, get a real LSAT score and then come back. 3.3 isn't great, but you can still snag some T14s with a solid LSAT score. Good luck with the prep.

Alas, I must give credit for the Choose-your-own-adventure version of the "Should I create a 'What Are My Chances' thread?" thread to kappycaft1, who seems to be the origin of nearly every good google doc on this site.

OP there are lots of people who get 180s on practice tests after tons of work and then on game day they score anywhere from 160 to 180, so you can understand why the MO of this forum is to answer only people with official LSAT scores. Good luck with your prep, it's a worthy battle that can and should challenge all of you, but don't worry about anything other than the LSAT until you get your score back.

Both of these.

Misdemeanors probably aren't a huge deal, but it depends on what exactly they were for (I think the general standard is that crimes involving dishonesty, such as fraud, are worse), how long ago they were, how many of them there were, etc.

If you have serious concerns about your criminal record, you should talk to a lawyer who specializes in C&F before you keep devoting time to the LSAT. But I seriously doubt it will come to that, given that you only have misdemeanors.
