This is probably sacrilege to ask. I have a 172 LSAT, and a 3.9 LSAC GPA. When I started the whole law school process, Georgetown was my dream school - but after getting my LSAT back, I figured I had a shot at some higher ranked school. Trouble is, I certainly don't have great work experience or EC's (started one club, and tutor), so I'm stressing out about my PS. I have never been great at writing personal papers, and I don't have any incredible life story.
So I'm trying to make my PS better, but in the end, truthfully, I think it will end up being average (ie, i certainly won't get a boost from it). So my question is, after all that - how much is the lack of EC's and an average PS going to hurt me? I DO know that my recommendations will be very strong, I have had a very close relationship to two profs since freshman year.
I have pretty much crossed HYS off my list, (might send app to harvard just on a prayer)
Given my situation, much of a shot at Columbia, NYU, Chicago?
Michigan or Penn?
Finally, still likely to get into G'Town?
