Hello, I took the LSAT this past weekend and don't feel particularly confident. However, I want to know what my admission chances are to Top 50 schools considering my other accomplishments: 1.) I completed an M.A. in Social Sciences from The University Of Chicago in 2006 (with a 3.7/4.0). For those of you who don't know, receiving a degree from Chicago in social sciences is akin to obtaining one in Physics from MIT. 2.) I obtained a 3.78/4.0 GPA as an undergrad at Loyola Marymount University, double majoring in Psychology and Classics. 3.) This past year I worked as a research analyst for The Nielsen Company, the country's leader in market research. 4.) I have other accomplishments, publications and conferences, but since i have a diagnosed neurological disorder that makes it difficult for me to perform well under stringently timed tests, and I usually don't do well on standardized tests. I'm 26 and will have letters from professors who lead their field. If I receive a 150 to 160, can someone give me an honest assessment as to my chances at everywhere from Chicago to Cornell to Lewis And Clark? I would think that my Master's achievement would be more impressive than a high LSAT score, as there are many people who score high on the LSAT, but not many who do well in the country's number one graduate program.
Physics is inherently more difficult than most or every discipline. If social sciences are so easy, can you give me any insight into the relationship between culture, language and thought? Or the relationship between economics, culture, and individualism in Western Europe from 1400 to the present? Have you read Jurgen Habermas, the theories of Gary Becker, Marilyn Strathern, or Adorno? People like you do not need to comment on subject matter that is well-respected by individuals far more emminent than you will ever be (think Paul Wolfowitz, Milton Friedman and Ben Bernanke).
