The unbelieveable occured...
« on: September 17, 2007, 12:52:18 AM »
I just found out that one of my friends, who DID NOT get a 170 on her LSAT, but something close, like a 166-168(she refuses to disclose), got into Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and NYU, but waitlisted at UCLA. She had like a 3.9gpa, wrote an honors thesis in undergrad, majored in Public Planning, and had great Extracri.

She ended up going to Yale, this Aug, b.c they gave her more money.

Do you think this give hope to peeps without excellent LSAT scores?

BTW, she went to NYU for undergrad and did not take anytime off...

It can be a huge factor in determining admissions.

Spend some time on lawschoolnumbers.com

No one here is saying people get in for that reason alone. But if you refuse to understand that that factor does play a (sometimes major) role in admissions, you're fooling yourself.
