Chances?

Recommended Posts

I’m sitting with a 3.7 and 157. I have a newborn so studying for the LSAT was challenging. I’ll have a nanny to either return to work or start law school. Also have a Masters degree.

Any thoughts on my chances?
 

Thanks!

According to last year’s applicant profile (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-u9luOkViBOYVM2bWFMcmJNcUpOZVBZY0lsTVpyOGRIaGFR/view) only one student was admitted in the Regular category with your stats, which means you have a good (albeit not guaranteed) chance. (Note: the table does not include 36 students admitted in the Holistic round).

What is your L2 to the second decimal point? Did you include your Masters grades? Also, are you applying for this cycle, or for 2021? If the latter, you may consider re-doing the LSAT (acknowledging your study time restraints) and aim for a better average.

Either way, I recommend putting solid work into your PS in case your file goes to holistic review. Feel free to PM me if you want to ask about specific/personal content you’re considering including. A cursory review of my profile will show that I was a lucky holistic admit - my PS was apparently acceptable and I’m happy to share my approach.

Thanks. I’ve applied for 2020. My gpa is 3.72. And yes, that is with 24 credits from my MA (thesis-based), and the rest from my undergrad.

I put loads of work into my PS (already submitted). 🤞

Aaah, so the die is cast!

My honest opinion is that you have a chance, albeit a narrow chance, of getting in as a Regular applicant. Holistic chances are anyone’s guess. If you have not heard by end-March early April, you will likely be waitlisted.

I asked for your L2 to two decimal points because some legit geniuses in past years have come up with a pretty accurate prediction formula based on your L2 and LSAT scores (link below). Although your score is below the predicted auto-admit range, it’s not abysmally low. 
Good luck!

    • If you have escalated your concerns to the manager and they were dismissed then that says something about the environment where you work.  I do not know how helpful this is but I will throw some considerations out: Does the Credit "A" receives have an impact on your growth at the firm? Does A's behaviour have an impact on your ability to get a bonus? on your billable target? If it does and you have shared your concerns and nothing is being done about them then I believe you will slowly start to resent your workplace which will naturally lead to you look for another job.  Are you getting good experience at this workplace or are you are always stuck doing the grunt work? If you are getting good experience, is it enough to justify working at that place?   
    • Got the email earlier today! LSAT avg: 153 GPA: 3.99 or 4.0 depending on how they rounded it Most likely accepting 😊
    • Is your L2 confirmed? If so, definitely in. 
    • I’m at a L2 3.85 and 155 LSAT. Thoughts?
