3.2 GPA/174 LSAT, Possible URM?

Postby wilitingdaisy4 » Thu Sep 08, 2016 7:26 pm

I'm applying from a large top-25 school as a mixed race Asian-African American candidate. I have a 3.2 gpa in a hard science major and a 174 LSAT, with normal softs/extracurriculars. What would my chances at a T14 school be? Are there any that would look favorably upon my super split? My top choices are Columbia, NYU, Georgetown, Duke and UCLA, but I know many of those might be long shots with my gpa. Any guidance/advice would be appreciated! :)

The sample size isn't that great so I had to go back almost 10 years, but this will give you some idea of your chances.

Thanks for the chart USayinBoalt :)
I had the same problem when I was looking up numbers on MyLSN and wasn't sure how accurately the older stats reflected my chances, and also wasn't sure about using the URM status since Asians usually have a disadvantage and AA have an advantage in applications.

Also, do you go to Boalt Law by any chance? I graduated from UC Berkeley undergrad this past May.

No, I went to UCLA for undergrad, but Boalt is my #1. I'm applying next cycle

No problem, I hope you have a great cycle this year (great LSAT score!)
