3.87 UGPA/161 LSAT

Postby Jack94 » Tue Dec 26, 2017 5:43 pm

Hey all, the 161 was my December LSAT, and I'd really prefer not to wait another year, if possible. I'm hoping that my UGPA of 3.87 helps offset that. Preparing applications to: ED to Georgetown, otherwise Fordham, GW, BU, BC, Northeastern, and Northwestern. Thoughts? Not URM.

No chance at Georgetown (and you shouldn't ED even after retaking for a better score). No chance at Northwestern. Decent chances at admission everywhere else, but you're unlikely to get much in the way of scholarships everywhere that isn't Northeastern.

So unless your goal is to have a middling chance at being a lawyer in a small firm or local government in Massachusetts, you need to retake. Law school isn't going anywhere, and you can't rush this decision.

Everybody hates waiting another year but almost nothing bad ever comes of waiting.

Wait, study, retake. Enjoy your life along the way.

Also do not ED. Never ED. This isn't undergrad admissions.
