What are my best bets? 3.9, 168
« on: June 30, 2009, 02:53:59 PM »
I scored a 168 on the June LSAT and have a 3.95 GPA from UF.  I'm not a URM.  I'm double majoring in journalism and anthropology.  Any suggestions on where to target for my reaches?  Is a T14 possible?

I'd apply to Berkeley, Michigan, Virginia, Penn...you certainly have a more than reasonable shot at any of those schools.

i had identical stats in 2006 and got into a bunch of t14s. if you apply to michigan, virginia, and berkeley, at least one of them will almost certainly take you.

Michigan and Penn are definitely places you should apply.  But you'll get into many of the T14.

This past cycle, I applied with a 169 and a 3.94 (very close to you).  These were my results:

Harvard: Rejected

Coluimibia: Deferred (withdrew)

Virginia: Waitlisted

Michigan: Accepted, $45k/ year

Duke: Accepted, $61k/ year

Vanderbilt: Accepted, $82k/ year

Emory: Accepted, $81k/ year (was offered interview for full-tuition scholarship)

WUSTL: Accepted, $102k/ year

Kentucky: Accepted, full ride + stipend




I have a family here in Kentucky, and it is where I want to practice, so it made sense for me to take the money and run.  As my cycle shows, those numbers can get you into some really good schools... good luck!
