I'm applying ED to Michigan. Any advice you might be able to provide specifically regarding my stats as a "splitter" (low LSAT, high GPA)...? I wrote the one supplemental essay explaining my LSAT, indicating how my other qualifications are more predictive of my potential.
I have been dreaming of going to U of M Law forever it seems like and the LSAT score I received yesterday was really discouraging, but I'm not giving up. Do you think the AdCom would ever consider outstanding essays, academic record, and LOR to outweigh a lower than average LSAT? Anything I can do to improve my odds?
I'm in the same boat as you...albeit with a slightly lower gpa (3.93). I was scoring 177-180 on the last 5 lsat practices I took and on the June test scored a disappointing 168. I debated retaking for a long time and ultimately felt that with the curve getting harder on the lsat, it might be best to cut my losses for this cycle and apply with my 168. I would DEFINITELY get my apps in as early as possible if i were you...your numbers are def. strong enough to get a second look and you would rather compete against a smaller pool when adcomms are less forgiving about numbers..hope that helps...apply to all the t14s you want, you'll have a great chance at a number of them and michigan's median lsat is a 168, median gpa is far below yours...good luck!
