I have a LSAT 146 with a GPA of 3.81, any chance?
« on: January 08, 2004, 12:29:39 PM »
My LSAT score is a 146 while my GPA is at 3.81 now and should be going up.  I will be graduating in July and I am trying to sit for the August term.  Do I have a chance to get accepted and if so what suggestions can you give me.  This would greatly help me.
Thanks

p.s what does UGPA stand for?

UGPA is undergraduate GPA.

For some reason I'm big into promoting the LSAC admissions info today.  Check it out if you haven't already:

http://officialguide.lsac.org/search/cgi-bin/lsatgpa.asp

You're situation is a little unusual because you have what they call "split numbers" (LSAT and GPA are on opposite ends of the scale).  Thus the LSAC info might not help you all that much - hopefully someone on this board can give you some advice (I haven't been paying attention to admissions for a long time.)

You might also check out http://lawschoolnumbers.com.  They're making a database of this year's admissions records so you can see how people with similar numbers are doing.

I hope you have a chance. Look for a school that is looking to get its UGPA stats up.

You have a great chance.  I know people with your numbers who have gotten into plenty of schools, some with full scholarships.  Go for it!  You'll have better luck than you think.  Trust me!
