thanks in advance for any help. here's my situation:3.2 GPA. 174 LSAT, black male immigrant, 4 years out of school. harvard is my first choice, what chance (if any) would I have there? what about the columbia/nyu tier?
thanks Miss P, do you think with a really good personal statement, I have a reasonable shot at UVA or even USC(my sister is at a PH D program there). Honestly, retaking is not an option because I already retook twice. I studied a whole year for the LSAT, I was scoring in the 165+ on a regular basis, and tutored a friend (who went from a 150 to a 163 because of me). I'm just a horrible test taker, my nerves and pressure act up and I freeze. Hell I got a 900 on the SAT. I know people say this all the time, but my LSAT score is truly not a reflection of my ability to think and perform well in Law School. How do I convey this to the admissions people without actually saying those words?
3.63 UGGPA, English major with minors in French and African Diaspora Studies and graduated cum laude from Tulane (would have been magna had I written a thesis). 157 LSAT the first time, 166 second. 2 years work experience @ a social justice non-profit. AA female. What are my chances @t14?
