Gay Mexican-American, 2.9 GPA, 168 LSAT (CA)

Postby UCLAcal » Thu Jul 06, 2017 1:35 pm

Hello,

Just got my LSAT score. I scored a 168. I have a 2.9 GPA.

I am from South Central Los Angeles. I grew up poor. I am Mexican-American. Will I have a shot to get into UCLA law or UC Berkeley Law? What about any T-14's?
I want to stay in California since all my family lives here. I would like to go to an T14 in the east coast if I am able to get a good scholarship.

What do you think are my odds for the following schools?

Stanford
Berkeley
UCLA
USC
UC Davis
UC Irvine
UC Hastings

Thank you!

How long since you graduated from college? And work experience?

Can you get a fee waiver?

If so, blanket all of them.

If not, you'll have a decent shot at Davis, Irvine, and Hastings. I'd spend the extra money on UCLA, USC and Boalt because you never know. Stanford likely not unless you can get the LSAT several points higher.

Stanford is not happening unless the OP's story is much more phenomenal than they let on here.

Duplicate thread. Locking this one.
