rate my softs for HYS

Postby jabberwocky_phlegm » Mon Jan 20, 2014 2:39 am

I spent a year teaching abroad part-time. I have 0 months of full-time experience. I have very few clubs/activities during college. I did some run-of-the-mill volunteering.

Are my softs average or below-average for HYS?

I say average.

What you did in college matters as well.

Thanks for the replies. I guess I set off the troll alarm by accidentally implying my softs might be average at Yale. I know that they aren't. I guess my question was more directed at H and maybe S, and you guys answered that, so thanks :D

Just from the class profile you are below average (52% 2+ years out of college). Run-of-the mill softs won't turn heads for sure. However if your GPA/LSAT is 75th/75th you should be in at H. Even with 75th/75th for S, you probably won't get in (but who knows - it's S!) and same with Y.

You're about a 4 on the Mohs hardness scale

Like some others said, your softs are pretty soft in the world of softs. However, with the right numbers, you should be able to overcome this at H. After all, they need to satisfy their number needs for a large incoming class. At S and Y, you are probably SOL, but you never know.
