- 2.76, computer engineering in good Canadian university, upward trend (final year 3.90)- 166 on Sept09 LSAT- Employment: 16-month co-op program plus two 2-month summer internships => 20 months totalWhat are some reach and realistic schools in tier 1 that I have a shot at, given that:1) It's still early in the cycle2) The degree is from engineering
I realize 2.76 is horribly low. I had aimed for 170; my PTs were 165-176.If I do get a 170 in Dec 2009 (which I've already signed up for), I should expect much better chances at 20-35 right? Especially schools like WUSTL, GW, Fordham, W&L.
Thanks. I know i'm greedy (and have a bad gpa), that's why I'm retaking. I need 170+
Hey contract2008, thanks for helping me out in this thread, I actually have a question the relates to your suggestion.Normally a school won't let you apply twice for the same "season" because if they reject you in EA/early in the cycle, where your chances are greatest, then there's no point to consider you again later.However, if I apply now with a 2.76/166 and get rejected, take the Dec. and (hypothetically) get a 170, would I be allowed to reapply with upgraded stats for the same period?I think this is a complicated question...I posted it before and no one answered. It'd be great if you could give some insight. I'm definitely going to give the schools a call about this approach though. It might even differ for each school.e.g. I would consider Fordham PT, but if I apply and get rejected now, what if I get better stats later and they won't let me apply again (to either PT/FT)? I think Fordham PT is a reach, but that's beside the more important question posited above.
