Law School Applications / Re: my very very very very sad chances

can you retake the lsat? 157 is lower than the 25th percentile at UCLA, Davis and Hastings so it won't help you there. but with your gpa, it seems almost a waste to leave your lsat at 157.

you can still easily get in to cal northern, cal western, empire, golden gate, monterey college, new college, san francisco, san joaquin, santa barbara/ventura, thomas jefferson, and probably southwestern and santa clara. if you can't take the lsat again, i would say shoot for santa clara, since it's probably the most highly regarded.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Reach/Target/Safety List

your numbers are really similar to mine: i feel like your list looks really solid, but i could just be in delusion myself. i've heard that law schools make a big deal about grade inflation (i.e. make sure that your gpa puts you in a really high percentage of your class, otherwise they won't really care that it's so high).

good luck with everything!

sooooo just got lsat results back and wanted some feedback on school choice:

Large California public school (UC Davis)
LSDAS GPA: 3.96 (top 2% of students in my class)
LSAT: 168 (slightly below the 170 I was hoping for, but solid nonetheless)
Phi Beta Kappa, Regents Scholar, Political Science Honors Program and Scholarship winner plus various other stuff
Three internships: U.S. Senator, Local District Attorney, American Bar Association while studying in Washington DC, plus I've performed in local community theater productions consistently throughout my four years
Very strong personal statement and strong recs (one might be exceptionally strong)

sooooo here's my list so far:

insane reaches: harvard, stanford, chicago, uc berkeley
reaches/decent possibility: duke, vanderbilt, notre dame
safeties: uc davis, uc hastings, boston university, santa clara university

any comments? should i even bother with harvard at this point?
