What Are My Chances - YHS or Northwestern

Postby Lee1962 » Tue Sep 13, 2016 5:44 pm

Hi guys. I'm new here and I was told I should make this thread so that I could get some advice about going to a great school. Some information about me. I took my first practice LSAT in May and scored a 135. Since then I've gotten my score up to a really good 155. I have been taking a Kaplan course and I think I can break 157-158 by the next few weeks when I take the LSAT.

I have a really good GPA: a 3.3 form a solid school in New York City. I also have a really unique soft. I have been told that this is so unique I could get into a great law school with these credentials. I am shooting for Harvard but would accept Northwestern if offered.

What are my chances at YHS with these attributes. Thank you in advanced!

grades??

Unless you are an african american male who has single handedly cured cancer, no chance at YHS and <5% at NW.

I am not African American, but I am Chinese. Also, while I haven't added to the scientific community, I have helped prevent many deaths.

Actually, I really have helped people. I was featured in an anti choking ad that is really popular in New York City.

You literally have zero chance at YHS. Literally zero. Essentially zero at NW. I appreciate you helped save people's lives but nope to getting in.

Dude, postpone and study until you can get a 170+

I know you probably have some really dumb self-imposed reason as to why you can't and have to take in 2 weeks.

If that is the case and you score a ~157 your chances for NW are maybe 5% (If your PS/Resume/LOR are incredible) and for Yale a fraction of a percent.

Sorry to be harsh on you as it isn't my intent. Rather I don't want you thinking there is really any chance with those stats.

What do you mean? Is this not unique enough?

Yeshiva, Hofstra, Suffolk is where you're going to be looking at if you don't wait until you are more prepared to take.

I'm featured in this WSJ article.
http://www.wsj.com/articles/new-york-ci ... 1406507599


I think that this is really unique and I have a great shot. I guarantee I'll be at Harvard next year at this time.

You started out well, but way too quick on the reveal. Next time, you need to really string people along.

Seconded. You need to get to at least page 3-4 before the reveal.

Well, a 153 gets you into Yale. And you're already scoring a really good 155! You should go to Yale instead. Actually tho, plz go to Yale.

I'm not really sure I have a good shot at Yale. I've heard they care less about softs and more about LSAT score and GPA. Harvard I know is more interested in having unique students so they focus on "fit" over numbers.

did OP get his PSA gig because he's an actor? or because he's committed to fighting choking?
