Hey, does anyone know how LSData calculates its employment stat? I saw that Gtown's was oddly low compared to its 509s
@OptimalTenderCucumber: Take a shot at any schools you're interested in! While Stanford and Yale are indeed super tough (no one has gotten in with your stats recently: https://www.lsd.law/search/OmM3d), and only 1 out of 5 applicants got into Columbia, you have a good shot at all the others in the T6. 3 out of 5 got into Chicago, and, 2 out of 7 got into Harvard!
17:25
Do y'all think I could get Duke, Columbia, NYU, Gtown, or Penn w/ some $$ w/ a 3.78 and 173?
Columbia is a real stretch to get into with those stats. You have a better shot at the others, but it would still be a challenge. but, if you are accepted, I think they would probably offer you some scholarship funding. I would apply much more broadly, though. I think you need to apply to places like BU, GW, and Emory to be sure you'll have an acceptance.
What?? Those stats are firmly near the median for those schools. RollTide will at least have their essays read and resume reviewed by AdComms, which is all you can reasonably ask for. What happens from there comes down to factors we don't know
