Chance for a splitter applicant with WE

Post by silvio2020 » Sun Dec 16, 2018 4:46 am

Hey,

I would appreciate if you can provide some inputs.

UG: BA in Finance 2.3/4.0
Grad: MA in International Affairs (Since gpa from a grad school seems negligible, i skip this part)
LSAT: 175

WE:
2 yrs military, 3 yrs corporate (finance) before the grad school.
2 yrs embassy (specializing in economic issues)
All analyst positions.

I am interested in international trade law (probably specialize in international law as schools aren't tailored to "trade"). economic sanctions, trade issue, etc.

Schools considering to apply:
All T-14 minus top 6 and Berkeley
UT
UCLA
WUTSL
GW
American

Let me know if there are other schools that I should consider applying.

Your stats are pretty extreme and therefore your cycle will be very unpredictable. I know adcoms love military/finance people and with your 175, I think you definitely pass a threshold and people would be willing to give you a chance. I would blanket the entire T14 because the really top schools often have a little wiggle room to absorb a hit from a lower GPA. Who knows, a school like Penn might bite. Your personal statement will matter a lot more in this case so I suggest paying close attention to that. Also it's a bit late in the cycle applying now, but if you send your apps within the next few days you still have a decent shot. Good luck

Thank you for your feedback. I skipped the 2018 cycle and plan to apply for a coming cycle in 2019.
