GPA 3.84 LSAT 165

Postby johnhalberg29 » Tue Aug 14, 2018 12:01 am

My list:
Duke
UCLA
Northwestern
University of Pennsylvania
Georgetown

I'm a white male (I hate that race even matters in this context), and I have had two legal clerkships, one with my college's general counsel, and the other with the orange county public defender's office. I've done DIII swimming for four years, I'm in a couple of clubs, and I triple majored in Business, Economics, and Mathematics.

Do I have a shot at any or all of these schools? This link below says I have a 35% chance at Georgetown or a 36% chance at Duke, but that seems bogus to me.

Should i retake the LSAT in November before applying? I've already taken it 3 times (159>161>165), but I might consider taking it again.

Thanks

Gona provide you with a couple of points:
1. Major never matters, law schools don't have to report majors when they boost their GPA stats in order to raise their USN rankings each year. Otherwise, my biochemistry major should have helped me some, and yet here we are.

2. your legal clerkships are great softs since you're better than the majority of the kids who come without knowing why.

3. 165 is a decent LSAT but you could probably do better (I know "retake" is a cliche advice but honestly it matters with regards to admissions and scholarships .

4. Ultimately - I think you have a good shot at UCLA. Not sure about the rest - your LSAT is probably a bit low for some of the T14 (NU in particular is slightly splitter-friendly).
