Law School Admissions / Re: Will i get in

Depends on what exactly you mean by "top law school", but if you mean T14, then no, probably not. Your GPA is very good, but average for top schools. Your LSAT, however, is significantly lower than any T14.

Resume, extracurriculars, etc won't make much difference.

That said you can either retake the LSAT and shoot for a higher score, or apply as is. Plenty of schools with good local reputations would happily accept a 3.85/159 applicant, and many will come with scholarship offers.

To an extant, this depends on what you want to do and where you want to live. If you want Harvard and Biglaw, you need to increase your LSAT, period. If you're looking to be a prosecutor in Peoria, a scholarship to a good local school might be just fine.

^ I am hoping for anywhere in the top 20. UCLA would be a dream. My gpa should be 3.87 by graduation. Would an increase in LSAT by just a few points make a big difference? For example, could I get into these schools with a 162-163?

Hey guys,
So I am considering applying to school or taking a year off. I have a 3.85 GPA with a 159 LSAT. I am planning to retake it. I am just curious if it would be possible for me to get into a top law school with these numbers? I have a great resume, extracurriculars, and recommendations.
