Eh, you can get a rough look at your chances here.

I don't know much about USD or Oregon, but Santa Clara, Arizona, SMU, and Maryland are sort of stretches for you. Have you thought about retaking the LSAT?

I don't think coming out of UCLA helps.

I don't understand the results in column 2.

Does 3.2xxxxx mean I would have roughly a 3% chance of getting in?

Does 0.6xxxxx mean I have less than 1% chance of getting in?

Thanks for any clarification. I only ask because (if the above is true) I have a better chance of getting into Harvard than Buffalo - which doesn't make sense.

Thanks, Oyer

chiashu is a little goofy sometimes.

What is your situation, if you don't mind me asking. Are you graduating from UG in the spring?

I'm asking this in order to see if you have time to retake the LSAT one more time as Ruff Ruff suggested. Raising that annoying triple-digit to at least 160+ will greatly improve your chances.

Oyer: See the "E-4" towards the end of the number. The probability is so small, they had to use scientific notiation to represent the number. 1.0E-2 means you have a 1 in 100 chance; 1.0E-3, means 1 in 1000. 4.5E-4 means 4.5 out of 10,000.

In other words, you have a snowball's chance in hell at these places.

0.01 is 1%
0.10 is 10%.
1.00 is 100%

You could get into U of Houston or St. Mary's in San Antonio.  I live next door to it, it's quiet pretty.  I think you have a decent chance at a lot of Tier 3 and 4 schools.  U.S. News and Reports' website would be a good place to start hunting for alternatives.

You dug up an ancient thread...

FYI, 152 isn't going to get you into UofH unless you're URM.

St. Mary's dinged me with a 153, albeit a lousy GPA.

Have to disagre, I got into UH with a 150, but was part time program, and I'm fat, white and balding so I'm an ORM.

PT notwithstanding.

Yea they let anybody in PT, even me!

Nah, not anyone. Not I. :(

I didn't specifically apply for PT, though. Maybe I should have!

It was probably my soft factors; fat and bald.

I have very similar soft factors.
