ive been reaching btw 166-168 on a number of prep tests but my gpa is a meager 3.3- what are my chances of getting in to a tier 1 school like penn or columbia?
Pesonally, no one on here can viably affirm this because none of us are admission reps. and do not know what variables they utilize in the final solution - if all variables are equal (IT THAT ITSELF IS SAFE TO ASSUME)? hhmmmmm... So, my opionion, go for it and see what happens!
Haven't read the answers from other posters, but here's something encouraging:My friend had a 3.0 from Northwestern in Soc and Econ and scored a 170. She was admitted to Georgetown, William and Mary, and Northwestern (attending) and was waitlisted at NYU and UT-Austin. Something discouraging:I also know of someone who had a brilliant GPA in engineering something or other (3.9?), and a 170+ LSAT and was rejected at Berkeley.It's one big fat crap shoot.
