165 / 3.65

Postby sblock60 » Mon Nov 18, 2013 11:55 pm

I have two undergraduate degrees and a masters in four years, but I heard that doesn't matter? Just wondering if anyone has any input on where it is worth applying? I appreciate any input!

What is your MA in? Working with your current degrees and applying next fall with a june retake is TCR. Otherwise, you're looking at T30 schools with small scholarships, or full rides at TT's. You'll get BC/BU, Fordham, Minnesota, Iowa, UIllinois, Emory, ND, IU, maybe WashU, maybe GWU, chance at USC, ect. Sticker or near sticker at any of these is a bad call unless you're loaded and dont have to take any loans.

My masters is in international business and I would like to do international law. I have strong softs, but I'm not sure I could do much better on the LSAT. I only ever scored higher on one practice test. I am already prepared to take out loans and my family is going to help pay them back so I'm not as concerned with scholarships. Thanks for your input!!!

Okay. ED Cornell thenRD Cornell then, and failing that, aim for George Washington U on some scholarship.

Scratch that: Cornell ED was due Nov 15. You could call and see if they'd still consider you for the program. That, or being ridiculously high in your class at GWU, is the only way someone with your numbers will open up the chance for legit international opportunities (and even then they will be very rare).

Thank you both for your help, I had applied ED to NYU, even though I know I'm 99% not going to get in, but it was my dream school and I had to at least do everything I could. But when I find out from them I'm thinking I will try ED Cornell since it's due January 6.

If NYU is truly your dream school, you should double down on the test. It is the only thing in your way.

Yup. You're not doing everything you could unless you hit the LSAT. HARD.
