int'l UG, good job, decent lsat

Post by aldn » Sun Sep 16, 2012 11:24 am

Hi
So I've got a UK undergrad. I'm not totally clear on how they convert my score, but I've got a very high 2:1, and a 167 lsat. i have a good job at a major newspaper in london.

berkeley would be top choice, chicago second. are my chances ok? or do i need a retake? thanks

that should help.

2:1 is an "above average"

You basically have no chance anywhere you are below the median LSAT. Decent to good shot pretty much everywhere else (USC and below).

bingo. You can't get into either Berkeley or Chicago with a 167. You're out of T14 at the moment.
