Chances at Top Schools...

Post by AEF2813 » Thu Feb 25, 2010 12:45 am

Hi everyone,

I am an undergrad at Georgetown, with a double major in English/Econ. I have a 3.9 GPA and got a 164 on the lsat :(, with URM status (Hispanic)

I applied to the following schools; any guesses as to where I can get in, or at least waitlisted?

UPenn
Georgetown
Duke
Notre Dame
UNC
UVA
UMD


Thanks!!

If I had to guess, I would say you will get into UMD, UNC, and perhaps Notre Dame. I'd say rejections at a majority of the rest of them with a waitlist or two thrown in.

OP's URM. I did about that well with similar numbers, and I'm not a URM.

OP's URM. I did better than that with similar numbers, and I'm not a URM.
I am hispanic as well, with a better LSAT but worse GPA than the OP. I did not get into any of Georgetown, UVA, Duke, or Penn, but perhaps OP has some good softs working in his/her favor.

If you'd be happy with UVA you can still switch your app to ED which would give you a much better shot.

Hey thanks for the comments... I especially like the idea about switching to ED, I didn't realize any schools were still accepting that.

Thnks-- yeah I could not believe how quick it was, but I turned in my app last week do I guess that helped. And yes, I faxed the form this morning at like 11, the number is on the "contact us" page of the law school site, just look for the numbers specific to admissions :)
