339GRE/3.68uGPA/7 years WE - chance me?

Post by thomasthelawengine » Thu Jun 10, 2021 2:29 am

Hello!

Curious about 1) my chances for T14 schools and 2) whether I should still take the LSAT. Mainly interested in tech law and/or tech policy and consumer protection online - any school recommendations will be awesome too.

Stats are below.

GRE: 339 (170v/169q).
uGPA: 3.68 at an Ivy. Dual Degree (Econ + Intl Studiez) + two minors (Japanese & Poli Sci)

Softs: non URM (Asian). Army vet (non US - served during LoA in undergrad ), 7 years exprience in tech/ecommerce (data science), first gen college grad.

Recs will most likely be glowing and I'll be putting in a lot of effort into my SOPs.

Thanks in advance for any input!

I'd apply without the LSAT unless you are getting above a 170 on your practice tests- not sure you'll get a scholarship without the lsat though (i just don't know enough tbh).
You are the right candidate though for GRE apps- and I think you should really give U of M or UVA real consideration. You'll get into a T14 I think. If you don't, take the LSAT and reapply another cycle.
Best of luck.

Wafflez,

Thanks for your reply!

Scholarship was my main concern re:GRE. I personally am not willing to attend any law school at sticker price (3-400k would buy me a condo and generate rent income for life!) which makes me feel uneasy about just applying with my GRE score.

I've been studying for the LSAT for the past month or so and have been getting around 170 timed;most errors occurring in logic games which I'm told is learnable. So i guess the upside of going for the LSAT would mainly be peace of mind.

re: UMich/UVA I'll def look into them; although the weather in Ann Arbor seems to be absolutely brutal. ;)

LG is certainly learnable. The reason I vouched for those two schools (and a plethora of others) mainly due to the GI bill and other benefits military folks get on the price. I think your price would be pretty reduced for going to a state school. I don't blame you for fearing the cold weather... I love to viist, not sure I'd love to live in it.
If you are getting around a 170 though I'd really consider taking the LSAT. I do think it is fine to apply without it though if you are in no rush to begin this cycle.
