leadership/internship experience. Slightly above average work experience.

Chances at:
NYU
UChic
Georgetown
Berkeley
UCLA
USC
Northwestern
Michigan
Virginia
Columbia
Penn
Duke

which schools do I have no chance at? Am I a lock for any? Should I retake the LSAT?

Not an URM

Had the same stats last cycle and got into every school to which I applied, the highest-ranked being Penn. Check out myLSN for more details.

Probably a lock at any you are at/above both medians of, but you have a chance at all listed. The chance is obviously smaller going up in rank, so a retake will help, and there is no downside anyways. You'll get better schools, better scholarships, or both if you score higher.

Hi Poptart123, just saw a notification that you sent me a PM last month but I can't view it now. Any chance you can summarize what it said? The subject line was "UT." Sorry and thanks!

Look at it like this, a few points will likely allow you to attend a school in the middle to top of the T-14 with a scholarship in the six figures. The ROI is incredibly good. A really good performance on test day and you could be looking at HYS, assuming that's a goal, or attending another exceptionally good school with a full scholarship.

Would say you have a good chance for all schools listed. I had the same LSAT score and a lower GPA, got into NYU early decision. Maybe early decision UChi/Columbia?

Don't do this OP unless you really feel like paying back $300k+ in loans.

I'm in the retake camp. If an improvement of 3 or 4 points could result in some institution of higher learning giving you $100,00 or more then why the hell wouldn't you?

I had a 167 (retook the lsat in June and ended up not reapplying) and a lower gpa.

Got into CCN + waitlisted at Stanford last year! I had above average softs. That being said, I would retake if you can. That 3.95 is beautiful!

I had same stats w gpa 4.01. Got in everywhere except WL at Harvard and rejected at stanford. Didn’t apply to Yale. Also not an URM. If you’re a woman with these stats, your odds go up substantially.
