170/3.8

Postby somuchwaiting » Wed Nov 06, 2013 12:11 pm

During the dreaded admission wait, I decided I'd see what you TLSers thought.

170 on LSAT, 3.8 GPA.

Chances at T-14? Thanks!

I know it feels like they do or should but none of those softs matter

Plug your numbers into mylsn.info and see what it says. Those are your chances.

OP, I've got virtually identical numbers and am also interested in JAG - very cool. Most of the research I've done suggests SteelPenguin's assessment is spot on. Best of luck to you, looking forward to seeing how our cycles go.

I thought you were WL at CC. I only make this point because a 170/3.8 should not expect CLS or Chicago.

Yep WL-->in, just thought I'd simplify it. Also for Chicago, WL-->withdraw, and NYU is straight in. Just FYI

Also H-->WL-->out

Why do you think international students going to a US university is necessarily a negative?

Oops. To clarify, being an international student is the negative, but having a US degree mitigates that slightly. International acceptance is lower in a good number of schools. For instance, Boalt accepted 0 internationals in 2009 (Page 3, Column 1):
