Ha ha, these are absolutely horrible predictions. Out at some he is almost auto admit to with a 168. Don't listen to those calculators, you'll get into almost everyone of these schools.

I have a worse GPA than you and I have been waitlisted to a top 50 school and got into 2 tier 2 schools. Waitlisted at other tier 2s as well, and my LSAT is 10 points lower than yours.

I would also throw Minnesota into that mix. Last year it would have been a no-go, but they've been friendly to splitters this year. Check out the LSN graph...

Dude, you're gonna get into the vast majority of those schools. Just chill out and wait. It sucks, but it's legitimate advice. I have several schools I applied to in October that I haven't heard from yet. It happens.

I think you have a good chance at most of those schools, but going through a lot of threads I've figured out the cycle of a splitter is extremely unpredictable. I have the same GPA, and my PT scores consistently fall in the high 160 - mid 170 range. Would love to hear how your cycle goes when it is complete. Good luck!

Thats crazy. Florida is one of my reaches and I have a 2.6 GPA (may very well upgrade it though to above a 3.0 w/ the help of some community college courses). I would have thought scoring 5-7 points higher than their 75th would give you a pretty good/great shot.

Below 3.0 is dangerous. Schools rightly think you are lazy. A sub 3.0 will have a very random cycle. There are some lower ranked schools who will absolutely not accept one.

I've got a 2.8/176, and I will be going to Northwestern, but Notre Dame probably wouldn't accept me.

Are you saying that 3.0 is a significant dividing point? It seems like other posters here have suggested this as well. If so, then I should consider myself lucky because I am just above this mark. But it just seems like an arbitrary number to set. I mean why should the difference between a 3.05 and 2.95 be any greater than the difference between a 3.05 and 3.15, or a 2.95 and 2.85 for that matter?

3.0 is a significant dividing point. Mich, Penn, Uva, and Gtown all have it as an unspoken gpa cut off.

Is there a good reason for your low GPA? I had a 3.11 and a 167, but I wrote an addendum (medical disorder, long story). I applied late, so I haven't heard much. For what it's worth, however, I was auto-admit with some $ at W&L; application to acceptance letter was 4 days.

I had a 2.8/168 applied straight outta undergrad, and of the schools that i applied to on your list i got into American and Miami, havent heard from UF. Probably attending WUSTL which is pretty good for numbers like ours, consider applying there.
