4.0/156 Hispanic

Post by darthpar » Thu Dec 24, 2015 3:42 pm

I've retaken test in December 2015. Still waiting (and hoping) for a higher score. Probably no higher than 163...

Should I spend money to apply to T14 schools? What is my likelihood of acceptance or even $$$?

Might be worth applying to some of the lower t14. Depends on what kind of hispanic you are as well.

But with that 4.0 please don't go to law school until you get at least a 165 or better. Being a URM with a 4.0 you could literally go to any law school in the country. Sign up for the June LSAT and use the next 6 months to study. Doing anything less would be a terrible waste

Don't expect much URM boost. I don't think cuban american qualifies as URM at all, unfortunately.

Doubtful. Cuban-American isn't URM, partly because they're a small minority and partly because it took enough money to defect under Castro such that a disproportionate number of Cuban refugees were successful professionals.

Regardless of URM status, a 4.0 reverse splitter can sneak into the T14 if they hit the low-mid 160s, though they would likely be paying sticker. Even if you can though, don't waste that great GPA OP. Retake.

Is that an encouragement to retake even if I get around 162/163?

With that GPA, you should probably retake anything that isn't 173 or thereabouts
