You have a 176, 4.0. Unless you have some major C&F issue, or you write something racist in your PS, you have a solid shot at the T-6 including named, full-ride scholarships. You might want to write an addendum for the LSAT jump, but as long as you write something coherent, you'll be fine; schools will only care about the 176.

In case your interested, here are you're rough chances

Applicant with 3 LSAT similar to yours, although her 3rd take was a little higher, doubt it makes a difference though

Maybe Yale, but that's it. Your numbers won't hold you back this cycle.

It's like, a Jewish thing


I could be wrong here, but is the real question: are you international or is that degree in Talmudic Law from an international university? That could potentially make a difference here.

The public jury is out/split on whether the degree being from a community college has any impact on admissions, but that combined with the multiple LSATs makes it a decided "might."

You have really strong numbers, so just apply broadly and see what options you have. There is no use in trying to read tea leaves into how much admissions will care about your multiple LSATs and/or 4.0 from a community college. So just apply when apps open and see what happens.
