Gay MexA male 167 2.9 (3.17) What are my chances?

Postby ponyboy7 » Mon Feb 10, 2014 7:14 pm

I graduated from a Texas school with a 3.17 but I took college classes in high school that didn't go so well. I have work experience (senator, non-profit, abroad). I have two strong recs. I have taken the lsat twice, once a 160 and the second time a 167. But I am applying pretty late in the cycle. My sexuality and race are covered in my ps and ds.

What are my chances?

What schools are you looking at?

Also, did you really need to make two threads about this?

GULC/NU/UT should probably be your targets

expect significant scholarships from 19 down

Cool, thank you. UT is my dream school really. I'm also looking at other schools in that range UCLA, USC, GW. I'm applying to schools from the 7-30 range.


I made another thread to get responses from different perspectives, I don't think that's against the rules.

Why would it matter if you are gay or not?

To clarify, you have worked as a senator or you worked for a senator? I think it could make a major difference, but that's just my opinion.

I just mentioned it as a sort of soft.

Haha. Sorry it's not very clear. I was an intern for a state senator.
