3.75 GPA Engineering From Sac State. What to expect?
« on: June 03, 2009, 04:31:46 AM »
Hey all. This is my first post. There is a lot of experience on this board.

I am majoring in Mechanical Engineering as undergraduate with a GPA of 3.75 currently (max increase to 3.8 by graduation in 2010). This is from a very medium school, nothing prestigious (Sacramento State). My LSAT is 165. I don't have any super impressive extra-curriculars, just an internship, treasurer of ASME chapter and a bunch of honors clubs. I am also fairly young (I'll be 20 at graduation), that is why there is not much work experience and extra curricular.

Where can I expect to get in? Can I expect financial aid anywhere? What if I increase LSAT to ~170, for example, how much do things change? Other comments?

You should be able to get in, I would wager, just about anywhere except the most prestigious schools, and with a good scholarship, to boot.  I would bet you could get in to at least a few of the mythical "T14" schools, too.  Your good GPA in an engineering major will count for a lot.
