Nope, middle eastern, but I don't think that matters

I don't want to spend all that time and money applying for schools that I have no chance in being accepted at.

Do you have post-college work experience? Northwestern took a couple people this year who had a 175+ LSAT and a <2.9 GPA.

I really think NU and Georgetown are your only T14 chances with those numbers.

Have you considered a retake? 5 more points you're in at the lower T14, 7 more points you're looking at multiple

Would 4.09 and 163 have a decent shot at UT (I am not a URM or a TX resident)

I know it's impossible to figure out my odds without an LSAT score, but my main question is: what is the minimum score I will need to have a shot at Northwestern Law? I'm assuming nothing less of 168, but I have a feeling it might be min 170.

Any ideas?

Thanks


Definitely 170.

2 B.S. degrees from a highly regarded lib. arts school (Biology & Business Admin)

2.94 (2.78 lsdas), 172

Non-traditional (out of undergrad for 9 years, worked in the legal field the entire time)

Great LORs, one from a highly-regarded attorney (supervisor) and 2 great ones from undergrad professors.

Biggest ding is a DUI 5 years ago :(

I'm thinking addendum to address my being a moron with the DUI and an addendum to address the GPA (was a 3.6 my last 80 credits).

Due to my wife being in school, I'm confined to the central VA area, I'm realistically applying to U of Richmond and William & Mary. Any ideas on any scholly money from Richmond with me being a splitter?

Should I re-take and shoot for a 175-176, I think my GPA will keep me out of UVA even if I hit 180, but from I've seen on LSN I may have a chance at W&M.

Due to the slim chances at either W&M and UVA, should I ED to U of Richmond?

Thoughts??

What kind of LSAT am I shooting for for CCN?


2 answers: always shoot for 180, and probably 174

ED to UVa immediately; on that day, do a campus visit + interview with the dean or admissions director. You will have a decent shot man. UVa also has a really fast turnaround, so you'll know within 14 days whether you got admitted.

After the decision, you can consider further whether you'd like to ED to W&M (forget richmond). If you are waitlisted at UVa, you probably shouldn't ED to W&M. If you are downright rejected from UVa, then ED to W&M.

The reason why I say that you shouldn't ED to W&M if wait list is because I honestly think you have a decent enough shot if you turn your UVa app in immediately + do an interview.

Hey guys...

anyone know anything about Hofstra part-time? I didn't even bother applying full-time because I would not have been accepted. my lsat score is not exactly the best.

I applied mid-September for part-time. I graduated last year and took a full year off from school (so I am not non-traditional). My stat: 3.27 lsac gpa/149. East Asian, wasn't born in this country though.

Think Hofstra will be more forgiving to part-time applicants?

I also applied to Michigan State for PT. Hofstra, CUNY, and Michigan State are my three reaches. After that, it's mostly safety schools.

My top priority is getting into the school that would give me the greatest possible chance at DC or NY biglaw

My Question Is: To which school should I apply ED, and which schools are my best bets for (1) getting accepted and (2) biglaw?

LSAT: 176
GPA: 3.63

Currently in senior year at a good state school. GPA can go as high as 3.7 and as low as 3.6 (most likely 3.6ish). I have my real estate license and am planning on taking 1-2 years off working (not necessarily real estate). I'm not an URM. Do I have a shot at YHS? How about CCN? Am I guaranteed the rest of the t-14 or will my gpa hurt me?

Probably not YHS, maybe CCN, good shot at the rest of T14, esp splitter-friendly NU.

Mine are LSAT: 171, GPA 3.89 - where's the highest I can go? UG now, but a lot of strong softs/recommendations

3.22/166

Any chance at W&M or Emory?

I'm a Virginia resident, two years WE, LGBT diversity statement, strong PS.

I know it's kind of a long-shot with my GPA, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Maybe I'm misreading something but I'm under the impression that UVA does not interview.
