I took Japanese my freshmen year and received two Ds. Is that a good enough reason?
what is the sarcasim about with the 'lol'. The person who is laughing, did you get into anyones law school to know anything about this process? Since the original poster scored in the 99th percentile, meaning you did better than 99 percent of applicants who apply, and with the LSAT generally being the single most weighted item for consideration, you should at least apply to Harvard if that is where you want to go.. I know a guy who applied to harvard later in the cycle, and scored in the lower 170's with a GPA similar to yours and got waitlisted at Harvard. He did have a hard major however (science/math). I believe that he would have gotten in if he applied earlier.
Hey all, I don't have a chance at Yale or Stanford and pretty sure Harvard is out of the question as well but what about the other T14 schools? I'd really like to go to Columbia but obviously would be open to NYU, Northwestern, Chicago, UPENN or Georgetown. Any advice you guys could offer would be great. A little background: I attended a NESCAC school, am actively involved in a couple of non-profits and currently work for either the number one or number two law firm as a paralegal. Thanks!
