Stats: 3.31 GPA, 163 LSAT
Additional Info:
-1 yr out of UG w/ full-time law firm work exp

- Upward trend in GPA & LSAT
- Interested in entertainment law

What are my chances at:
-Georgetown (PT Program)
-USC

**I realize the ideal option would be to retake- but in my situation, it will have to be another year (Feb 2018) until I can take another LSAT.

Thanks!

My advice would be to retake if you can. But if not:

-Georgetown (PT Program) - you may have a little chance for the part time program, but not for the full time.
-USC - reject
-Fordham (PT Program) [decision put on hold] - maybe
-BU - reject

Hope I was helpful. You should also check out law school numbers to see where you match up. Also make sure all of you app materials are stellar if you want more of a chance since most schools say they take a holistic approach. Good luck!

Most schools lie.

OP, why are you considering PT programs? It looks like you're considering regular full-time school as well, so if you have the option, I'd go full-time no matter where you decide to attend. There are very few good reasons to go part-time, and since it doesn't seem mandatory for you, it sounds like you should avoid it.

Schools "lying" is hardly a good reason for OP not to make sure the rest of his/her application is extraordinary.

I didn't say they should, but it's also no reason to tell them that a "stellar" application is somehow going to make up for not hitting the numbers these schools want.
