« on: November 17, 2008, 02:44:51 AM »
3.92 GPA (one semester left), 173 LSAT, psychology major, philosophy/classical studies minor at university of minnesota. will be applying next fall after i intern at  a law firm. also, i am a 1st generation college student. haven't gotten recommendations yet, but i assume they will be decent


do i have a legitimate chance for harvard, yale, nyu? what would make me standout or is this already good enough?

any comments appreciated

Yale = probably not
Harvard = probably yes
NYU = yes

thanks,

my biggest concern is that they would view the U of Minnesota as an "easy" school. It's not even top 50 by most standards, but it top 15 in psychology

i did take medium difficulty coursework with  honors and some graduate level classes. got As in all law related courses
