169/3.5 Chances at UVA/Gtown/Cornell?

Postby GaiusMarius » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:32 pm

Hi all,

3.5 GPA is a result of a really bad second semester when I decided to become an Econ major and did poorly in a bunch of my science classes. Since then, 3.9 GPA every semester. LSAT scores: 163 (September 2016), 169 (December 2016). A little frustrating because I was PT'ing a 173-175 before December, but still applying on this cycle (thinking about retaking June or September if the admission results are poor this spring).

Very average softs (volunteer work, mock trial, teaching experience) except maybe working as a research assistant at the national archives and being published with a professor. Should graduate magna cum laude. What are my chances at UVA/Georgetown/Cornell? (Also been getting mixed replies about being a Southeastern Asian - doesn't really mean much as far as URM goes). All advice is appreciated!
