Black Male URM- 3.4Ivy, 159LSAT

Black Male URM- 3.4Ivy, 159LSAT
« on: December 29, 2009, 10:02:37 PM »
Black Male URM
3.45 GPA from Cornell
Master's degree at another Ivy
159 December LSAT (up from 154)
Applied to all T14s plus some T30s and I've been accepted to a T20 already.
Already took year off to do my masters so I won't take another year off.

Apps have been submitted and will be reviewed in the first week of January according to the admissions offices I've spoken to. Am I likely to get into a T14 like Cornell (my alma mater) or Georgetown? Any other T14s? Thanks all.

You have a very legit shot at a lot of good T14 schools. HYS is unlikely, but any below that may be in play. Best of luck!

I'd agree with this advice, particularly if you can play up your soft factors.  Have you considered Berkeley?  Good luck!
