I'm working at a bulge bracket Ibank for a couple years also and then either getting a better finance job or going to Columbia Law (I got in and deferred). Apparently getting a job in corporate law is much easier for us because we have intense finance experience as opposed to the other law students who mostly majored in English or Women's Studies and couldn't get a job otherwise.

In terms of what schools you can get into I will be frank. You are black, and this will provide you with an amazing advantage over other people, especially coming from HYP. I say you can get into Yale with a 168 or higher and can get into Harvard and Stanford with a 166 or higher on the LSAT. Good luck.

I cancelled the LSAT Twice and I still got in everywhere I should have (columbia, NYU, Chicago with $, etc..) and waitlisted at the places I should have been (harvard, stanford). I have a 3.9/170 and I also never even mentioned the cancellations in my app. I know people will tell you differently, but it DOES NOT MATTER

I am training to work for an admissions consulting firm and I would like to critique some personal statements to get some practice. If you want some help with your PS, email me at

Law School Admissions / Re: 2 cancellations.... what does this mean?

Yes, the law schools will know that you cancelled.

LSAC does not include a letter about problems with the test center. it's BS

Law School Admissions / 2 cancellations.... what does this mean?

So because of proctoring problems at two different locations (i have crappy luck) I had to cancel the LSAT score twice. I took it a third time and got a 170. WIll this affect the decisions of the top schools in which I'm applying to? should I write an addendum explaining that it was a result of proctoring problems? I was going to but I now think it could make it seem like I'm making poor excuses for my failure. what do you think???
