Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 3.6 GPA/171 LSAT Top 14?

Hard to say and can depend on the quality of the rest of your application. I know someone with almost the same numbers who applied last cycle and was pretty heavily waitlisted at the T14. So yes, the possibility of admission to the T14 is there, but be sure that the rest of your application is in order (LORs, PS, etc).

That's depressing.  I thought if I'm applying to a school and my LSAT is over the 75th percentile and my grades are at least over the 25th, I should be in. 

Did this person apply at every one of the top 14? 

I want to live by DC, so Virginia, Duke and Georgetown are what I'm shooting for.  I'll go to Columbia and of course Harvard or Yale if they accept me.

Hi everyone,

I've got a GPA of 3.625 and an LSAT of 171. 

Took 5 years to graduate (changed majors), humanities major, multilingual and spent two years at community college if any of that matters.  Taught English abroad.  Middle Eastern descent. 

It looks like I'm above the 25th percentile in LSAT for Harvard and Yale but my GPA is too low.  Can I safely expect to get into any of the other T14?
