Overcoming 3.3 GPA with LSAT for T14/T20?

Postby Bluex12 » Wed Mar 25, 2015 5:15 am

I'm a junior undergrad with a 3.2 currently, will be raised to 3.3 by the end of this semester. I'm signed up for the June LSAT, and obviously it's just practice but my diagnostic in December was a 166- since then I've read the Manhattan Guides and my average over 16 tests has been 172. Just curious-would any LSAT score be able to trump a lowly 3.3 for a non-URM with no outstanding softs? Thanks in advance.

I had a 3.3 and 174 LSAT. Got into GULC no problem (was limited to DC region so didn't apply higher). I did have decent work experience though.

From what I've seen, if you really nail the LSAT, you could probably get admitted at sticker to the t10, get $ at lower t14, and maybe get a full ride at the t20 range. GPA matters much less than LSAT.

Each LSAT point matters here but I say a good outcome is still possible and you don't have to pay sticker for top schools

Study hard and good luck!

One thing I don't see a lot of people suggesting on this site is the possibility of going into the military. You'd have 4 years of work experience, a solid soft for an application to law school, and, with the Post 9/11 GI Bill and the yellow ribbon program, you wouldn't have to worry about paying sticker anywhere.

Unless you're looking at California schools.
