I just got my LSAT score and did worse than I expected and prepped (I was averaging 164).
LSAT Score: 159
Current GPA: 3.56
Attending a well-rated California State University.
My number one choice is UCLA. However, their stats state that the average acceptance range is:
25th-75th percentile LSAT: 164 - 169
25th-75th percentile GPA: 3.49-3.87
I don't have much extracurricular experience apart from very brief eboard experience for an on-campus org. However, I am currently in the running for acceptance into the National Model United Nations (just had my interview today and I think I nailed it). And I am looking to get involved in my college's United Business Student Senate as an executive member.
Either way, I don't want to necessarily rely on this so I am planning on retaking the LSATs this December in hopes of increasing my score. Meanwhile, I have to decide whether to start applying to schools now or wait, including UCLA. I had wanted to try to do their early decision program but am scared because of my current score.
So what you you think of this? Am I screwed on this and should just retake the LSATs and wait to apply for everything, or should I take a chance and go ahead and apply to my colleges, including UCLA?
Any advice is appreciated.
