Studying for the LSAT / Re: 162 LSAT/3.96 GPA - Northwestern anyone?

Thanks everyone for the advice! There is a clear consensus confirming that I would need to retake. I don't see how this was quite necessary though:

You're gonna need a much higher score than 162 for Northwestern even with your super GPA and wonderfully attractive white woman soft stuff and special curves.http://www.ilrg.com/rankings/law/index.php/1/desc/LSATLow/2009

Studying for the LSAT / 162 LSAT/3.96 GPA - Northwestern anyone?
« on: July 29, 2008, 10:55:51 PM »
Hi,

I took the June LSAT with minimal prep and scored a 162. I am debating retaking in October, but I have a lot of other work responsibilities. I was wondering if any of you are familiar with Northwestern and my chances of admission? I've used the LSAC calculator, but this only takes into account LSAT and GPA (summa cum laude 3.96 with several honors). I have finished a year post-graduation working at the University of Chicago in a research lab. Great work experience, working on an independent research project as well.. I know NU values work experience. Any thoughts on how much these aspects might off set my low LSAT score? I figure maybe I should just bite the bullet and retake, but I have many other things going on at the moment with extra projects and a very busy full-time job making it difficult to devote a large chunk of time to studying.

I was checking out lawschoolnumbers.com and that makes my chances look pretty dismal. Although, I figure there must be a bias for the type of people who log on and submit their information... Also, I'm not a minority. White Female.

Any thoughts or information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
