I'll just go ahead and throw it out here.I'm a non-traditional (30 year old, 10 years work experience) with a 172 LSAT and 2.1 LSDAS GPA in Computer Science & Engineering. I'm only applying to SMU as it's the only one that I can really attend as I can't leave Dallas and Wesleyan isn't an option.I worked through school and didn't really care about it; at the time I just wanted my peice of paper and my grades reflected that. To my question, as I have never found anyone on LSN or via search with this type of split.. what kind of chance do I have getting into SMU either PT or FT? I can read the calculators and look at the median GPA's/LSAT's as easily as you can.. my LSAT is way over and my GPA is way under. Difficult to say.Thanks for any thoughts.
You'll be fine. There were several of us with pretty outrageous splits (though yours may well take the cake) last cycle, and I think that pretty much all of us with significant work experience wound up at schools ranked a good bit higher than SMU (including a few T-14). Personally, I wrote a GPA addendum that basically said, "Yeah, I was young and dumb when I was an undergrad, but I've wised up, as you can see from the fact that I've gone on to lead a productive life since then." I wound up getting into every school I applied to, with full rides at a T2 and a T3 that I eventually turned down in favor of my current LS.Good luck!
