4.0 / 165 ED Chicago

Postby map93 » Thu Oct 31, 2013 1:14 am

I'm applying early decision to the University of Chicago. I was rather underwhelmed by my LSAT score, and I'm really not sure what my odds of getting into Chicago are. Please help me out.

-I have a 4.0 GPA, 165 LSAT
-BA with honors in Near Eastern Studies, Linguistics, minor in Persian Language
-2 Critical Language Scholarships (nationally competitive scholarship for intensive language study overseas; through US Department of State)
-Pretty much every academic honor available at the large state school I attended as an undergraduate
-Advanced proficiency in Persian and Urdu, and lots of the sort of diverse experiences in which Chicago seems to be so interested
-In spite of my less than incredible score, I've been offered a job teaching LSAT prep classes (pretty much the only work experience I'll have)

-And I expect to receive a Fulbright next year, but that's not particularly relevant as I won't know for certain until the spring

If I write an engaging personal statement and receive excellent recommendations, how likely is it that I'll be admitted to Chicago? I'm extremely excited about the prospect of going there, and I wish I'd been able to go as an undergraduate! Thanks for your time!

= year off, study, retake, get work experience, travel, et cetera
Then apply next year to HYSCCN with an improved score and excellent CCN scholarship chances.
