Natives and LSAT score
« on: March 03, 2008, 01:17:52 PM »
I'm Native American (registered, active in my university) and I happened to do horribly on my LSATs. I have a 3.7 GPA at an Ivy League school and I'm wondering where I stand a shot at getting in with a 153 score  :-\. I've read on other posts that underrepresented ethnic status may increase admissions likelihood.

I don't think I'm competitive at law schools like Yale/Harvard/Columbia, but does anyone have any knowledge about Fordham, Georgetown? I would love to go to NYU but I just don't think that's happening.

Anyway, if anyone knows anything or knows anyone who has had a similar experience, I'd appreciate your input.

I'm kind of on the flip side of you.  I'm a registered NA and I got 165 on my LSAT, but have a 2.7 gpa...  I aimed lower than you (GSU, USD, American, and my dream school, W&M).  I'm not really sure how much being Native American helps our chances. If anyone has info I'd love to hear it too!

Those schools will be tough, if even possible. I'd target the same group that the poster above me was targeting. That's just my opinion.
