does early admission for Penn help?

Postby 01020304050607 » Sat Jun 06, 2015 10:03 am

I have a great GPA and my practice LSAT scores are consistently a 161. With a 3.95 GPA, phenomenal work experience, a 161 LSAT, and binding Early Decision, do I pose a chance of acceptance?

Compulsory TLS reply: No LSAT no chance.

FTFY. You are applying to the T-14. Phenomenal WE would be rocket scientist at NASA or Peace Envoy to North Korea. To answer your question, check LSN. As for ED, check this: http://spiveyconsulting.com/blog/early- ... -bump-real

Since you'll be a splitter, yes ED has an effect for Penn. HTH.

Actually, based on that link, splitters don't realize any ED boost for Penn. I updated this analysis for the applicant pool as a whole ( not accounting for splitters and reverse-splitters as separate groups) for data through the end of this last cycle at www.admissionsbythenumbers.com.

Not as much as a good LSAT score, no.

You should retake, the lsat isn't that hard and you could come here for free/less if you learn how to take a silly multiple choice test, but yes ED helps. Idk where the data comes from, but I suspect it's from a small portion of the class a la LSN.
