need some reassurance
« on: August 11, 2005, 04:14:47 PM »
I received a 152 on my LSAT. I have no interest in taking the test again. I have a 3.75 GPA from a top 10 liberal arts school and 9 varsity letters. I have work experience and volunteer with a local youth organization. I've seen the ABA book and the charts. Do i really have a chance of getting into schools like BU, BC, Northeastern? Or should I forget about law school altogether?

Really, above your soft factors, your numbers are the most important thing. I don't see you having a shot at BU or BC. While your GPA is surely competitive at both schools, BU and BC both have a 25th percentile LSAT that is 10 points higher than yours.

Northeastern could be possible but is probably a reach. You're still 5 points out of their LSAT range, but their 25th percentile GPA (3.19) is way lower than yours, and thus you might have a chance when your index number is calculated.
