Really? Well, fortunately, it's not a matter of money, but Harvard and CLS seem to prefer higher LSATs, and I was thinking that those gpa-whorish schools like NYU and Berkeley might like me more. But I guess it doesn't hurt to try.Thanks!

I'm not opposed to going to a T14 either - of my list on LSN, which would you say will be my highest-ranked acceptance?I think you'll get all of those schools, with maybe one random rejection.

ok red, I got a 167 and have a 3.81. I will have worked for a year at a top 50 law firm as a paralegal clerk in securities litigation and teach LSAT for TPR. Before that I was youth director at a 2500 member church (about 100 member group). Thus, I worked full time during my last two years of UG. Can I get into UT, Penn, Northwestern, HYS? Any? None? Dean of Honors College will write letter to all schools. I have a targeted LOR from a Norhtwestern alum who is now an alumni interviewer for Northwestern here in Houston. I did the Northwestern interviewer, and the dude said, "you will be a good lawyer, and I am going to give you a positive rec." I am writing every essay. .. why this or that, diversity statements etc. What are my chances? Thanks so much --
I'll throw some information out there. I've already applied, but waiting is pretty boring. I'm a black female, 171, 3.65. Freshman year was bumpy as a pre-med, with a 3.2, but I had a 3.8 and Dean's List the next two years. Applying straight from a pretty good undergrad. Recs are from two professors in my major who liked me and knew my activities around campus (though I'm probably not in their top ten all time or whatever it takes to make a recommendation "good"). Very little work experience (two summer jobs). I devoted all of my time to two club commitments (one religious, the other sports/student government affiliated), so a good part of my resume was explaining those roles (some of which I tied into my personal statement in describing my passions that pushed me toward law school). I wrote a DS for any school that asked about growing up as an Army Brat/living in Germany during Sept 11 and the beginning of Iraq conflicts.Sadly, my LSDAS report says I'm 20. Does that affect things negatively?
this is fun. here's my data:undergraduate gpa (degree): 3.93 (yale)lsat: 172 3 years WEmaster's degree I'm already planning on applying to the usual suspects, but my question is this: with a 172, do I still have a good shot at getting merit money from someplace like Boalt or Chicago?
Hello all,3.6 GPA from one of the top publics, and mediocre 160 for LSAT..how do you guys think are the chances for Fordham, Cardozo, GWU, Hastings?also, is it better to apply early, or to retake LSAT in Dec and apply later?Thanks!!
