URM AA Female (help!!!)

Postby NigeranOU » Tue Jun 16, 2015 1:25 am

With a 3.1 gpa what is the lowest score in the 160s I could get to gain acceptance to most of the lower tier t-14's.

They all have people with backgrounds similar to yours as an AA female and they are what I am using (as an AA male) to base my own application process around.


Hahha I promise that's not my mindset. I actually scored way higher than that. I'm just so nervous to apply I literally don't sleep at night i lurk these forums reading like a maniac. this is my dream my life and soul are tied to this it is very exhausting. If I don't get into a t-14 I know law school pretty much is not worth going. my gpa is trash so my Lsat and my personal statement has to take me to the promise land

If by "way higher" you mean 170+, as an AA female, you're probably getting CCN with money on down, likely close to a full ride at Michigan/Cornell/Northwestern. I'd apply to Harvard too, there's a chance.

Columbia/Chicago/NYU still a possibility, but you're more likely looking at Penn/UVA with $$ at the lower T14 schools. I'd take out a loan with a drug lord to bet on you getting into at least 1 T14 though so don't worry about that.

Although I dont personally know black females with your stats, the black males I know with gpa/ lsat scores in your range got near full or full tuition at Michigan and Texas and got into schools ranked as highly as Columbia (albiet not with a ton of money). We will likely be applying to the exact same schools. I'm a black male 3.2-3.3 gpa 168 lsat. Of course I would attend Harvard, Yale, or Stanford if accepted, but my preference is to get an elite education for as little as possible. I would take a full tuition plus stipend scholarship to northwestern, texas, or michigan, over pretty much any top 14 school that doesn't award me a full ride that's not HYS. I'm retaking to get a higher score but you are in a good position to get money from a quality school. I can't guarantee either you (or me for that matter) will get a full ride or into the upper t-14 but you are definitely competitive.

awesome this was the answer I've need all along and i read the links you sent me thoroughly last night. That thread is AMAZING. OH to be young, gifted and BLACK! ahah too much. But keep in touch. I am retaking too. Need as much money as possible. See you at the top
