3.79/164 Summa Cum Laude - Chances?

Postby areyn22 » Wed Nov 16, 2016 4:23 pm

Hi all,

I'm a white female from Georgia who is planning on applying to Emory, UGA, BU, BC, and Ga State. What are my chances with my stats? If it helps, I graduated from Emory and received Summa cum Laude through the senior honor's program.

Thanks!!

grades??

To answer your question, you'll probably get into all of them!

I had a 164 and 3.71 and applied to BU, UGA, and Emory -- I didn't apply until January though because I was waiting for my December LSAT score. I got into BU with $30K a year (after negotiation), waitlisted at Emory and never followed up with them since I knew I wasn't willing to pay full price to go there if I ended up getting in, and tuition equalization (I'm from Florida) plus $15K a year from UGA. I decided on UGA, so if you have any questions let me know!

Don't waste that GPA OP. A full-ride/Debt<30,000K at UGA is definitely acceptable tho. If you get that, and you are happy staying in Georgia I see no problem not retaking. Otherwise I think you owe it to yourself to study again and retake.

Got accepted to UGA today, regular decision, less than a week after I applied! There's a scholarship letter in the mail, so I'll have to wait to see how much I've been offered. Waiting to hear back from BU, going to apply to Emory but I'm in the same boat as you in that I don't really want to pay anything close to full tuition to go there.

Thanks for the advice!! In state tuition is a little less than 20k a year and I'm receiving a scholarship (though I don't know how much yet) through the mail, so it's a very tempting option. I haven't heard back from other schools yet. The 164 I got was actually 4 points higher than my highest practice test, so I wasn't underperforming by any means. I imagine, though, that I could see a 5 point increase if I took like 4 solid months to practice.

Congrats!! They also usually always email you the scholarship offer, two of my friends who got accepted already found their scholarship email in their spam inbox, so you may want to check that out. Once again let me know if you have any questions!
