170/3.35 (top 10 undergrad w/ legal work experience)

Postby DrLeoSpaceman » Sun Jul 01, 2018 6:27 pm

Rising senior at a top 10 undergrad, majoring in Poli Sci. Received a 170 and a 169 on LSAT. 3.35 GPA is weighed down by 2 community classes I took during sophomore year of high school (without those classes it's 3.4, not sure if that helps at all). Division I athlete and internship at Dept. of Justice. Targeting schools like UVA, Michigan, Georgetown, etc. Willing to ED, willing to pay sticker if necessary. Greatly appreciate any advice.

What were you PTing on LSATs? If you can get a few more points you'll be in the running for some scholarship money from the schools you're targeting. Plenty of time to study for one more retake in September

I was PTing in the low 170s (think 170-174). I know more points = more money but after a year of studying and two administrations, I feel like I've sort of maxed out. With my stats as they are, how would you assess my likelihood of admission to any T-14?

You'll be admitted to some if you apply broadly. But going super in debt probably isn't worth it

What do you think is the highest I can reasonably aim? Would NYU be off the table?

Your best best will be UVA and Michigan, and you have a shot at NYU. Nearly 50/50 chance at Penn, too.
