Lol you want to go to the two least splitter friendly law schools on earth. That is unfortunate. Both probably out. Don't retake. Admissions is driven by rankings and rankings are driven by medians. Your already over all medians and over all 75th of schools that would admit a 3.3, you're not really going to improve your chances with a few more points. Nyu is the best school you have any chance at most likely.I think you'll grab solid T14 options from 7-14, especially splitter friendly options like NU, UVA, etc

I think raising your LSAT score for Stanford and Berkeley will not really help. You are already above the 75ths (way above Berkeleys 75th)

At this point, I think you should clearly demonstrate your interests in those schools. If you have not already visited those schools, do so if possible. Stanford likes Stanford specifc-LOR. Berkeley seems to like PS that show diversity and/or overcoming obstacles. Make sure to write the Why Berkeley essay that is new to their application this year.

For other schools you are going to be fine. Most T14s would kill for a 175. For the lower half of the T14, consider writing Why X essays to avoid YP.

Other than that, I would say get your applications out early but make sure they are as polished as they can be.

People who get into Stanford and Berkeley have high GPAs. These two schools are very splitter-unfriendly. I don't think a re-take is necessary here. Apply broadly.

I'd say a decent chance at Columbia as well.

Almost certainly out at YHS, Chi and B regardless of other factors. Wouldn't count on Penn either. Should have ok-good chances everywhere else

apricots wrote:Thanks for the advice all. So just to be clear-- even with a retake, I'd have virtually no chance at HLS / SLS?

Also, should I expect scholarship money from mid t-14/low t-14?

HLS has a pretty hard GPA floor at around 3.5. I think SLS is similar, if not higher. Raising your LSAT will not help.

On the other hand, it's quite probable (but nothing guaranteed) that you'll get some merit aid from the lower T14. You'll have to apply and see.
