Re: 161/3.2 AA Chance me please

I agree completely with the advice above. Retaking really is your best option. That being said I was AA F, 162/3.2 and I yielded incredibly successful results with $$$ although I’m well aware that I’m an outlier and I wouldn’t suggest rolling the dice like I did if you can retake and score higher. ...

Is it true that only students who attend top schools, and some at Forhdam and Boston are offered admission into the program?
It's definitely not a program requirement but I will say that members of last years' cohort were all enrolled in the T-16, and the majority were HYSCCNP.

Interview waves can also be dependent on Van Ann figuring out her schedule to travel to your particular city so I can’t echo cardboard enough when I say not to worry about it. It’s incredibly early. Word of advice, be sure to update your list of schools on the application as you receive acceptances!

Check out Law school numbers. It’s got charts based on LSAT & GPA and individuals have an opportunity to put their scholarship offers. Someone else can likely offer better insight into HYS but since they only offer need-based and parental income is counted it’s likely more difficult to compare your ...

If you can craft a strong narrative along with really good LORs it’s possible. The best possible thing for you to do would be to get a higher LSAT like all the previous posters but if you’re determined to apply this cycle I would suggest you blanket. Your yield may be incredibly hit or miss and you ...
