Chances at HLS and others (URM/327 GRE/Veteran)

Post by skydiveup » Tue Sep 01, 2020 4:18 pm


Thanks in advance for your input.
My stats are as follows:
URM (AA Male); child of immigrants
UG GPA 3.75 (CS)
I have not taken the LSAT, however I recently took the GRE with 165V/162Q (have not received official score for AWA, I would imagine 5.0); ETS score calculator equates it to 169 LSAT.
Current business school student at a top ranked business school.
Military veteran; ~10 years in special operations (think Navy SEAL/Army SF)
What are my chances at the following schools: HLS, Yale, Columbia, NYU, UChicago, and Penn?
Thanks again.

GRE to LSAT “conversion” is pretty useless as an indicator of how you would do on the LSAT, and I don’t think anyone can provide a reasonably accurate prediction of your admissions chances until you have a real LSAT score.

That said:
1) you have a pretty unique resume and may have a shot for consideration under the GRE score admission programs that some schools (including HLS) are now implementing, but there’s very little data on that process and it’s pretty much a black box at this point; and
2) more importantly, why do you want to go to law school in the first place?
