« on: December 09, 2002, 05:41:51 PM »
i read a similar post, so i thought i'd throw this out and see what comes back.  i got a 167 on the lsat and have a 3.7 gpa at miami of ohio (majoring in philosophy and american studies)...  realistically, should i even bother applying to the top three (stanford, harvard, yale)?  of the other top schools, beyond the statistics gives me, what are my chances??  i'm hoping someone with a little background can give me their thoughts!!  thank you

Question is, have you lived life?  Schools like people who have high scores, but what distinguishes them is there real life experience.  
I am sure you will get into a school.  Don't sell yourself short.  Apply to any school you want.  Keep it realistic.
1-2 schools you dream about
3-5 schools that you could be happy at
1-2 fall back schools.
