My other stats:White Male, No interesting cultural or other factorsI do speak spanish and headed a few clubs in college, nothing remarkableGPA 3.67 (school and lsdas) mid 1st tier LAC, philosophy major, 3yr graduationI can get stellar recs to yale due to some faculty connections, others schools I can get decent recs1yr working in insuranceRight now my mean LSAT practice scores have been about 171. My low is 165. My high is 175. At what point is HYS even remotely realistic for me? 170? 173? 176?
Easy there Chris...no real shot...are you serious?Just check out LSN man, there are people making Yale with 3.2 and 171I think you have a shot as long as you get above 170.Just make yourself stand out!! In 170 land marketing yourself properly is crucial!!
you do realize that LSN is as self-selecting as LSD? of course its suggestive of who can get into a certain school, but it doesn't mean that only one person with certain numbers got in or didn't. if you have the money, just apply and don't worry about it until you get an answer. its better than wondering what would have happened if you had applied. don't let people tell you that you won't get in. remember that a lot of people who apply to law school are nothing but numbers and have done nothing outside of their coursework. that being said, if you have done anything interesting and are competing with others that have the same numbers, who do you think they would select?
