Odds of getting into UCLA?

Postby DrunkenZebra » Tue Mar 05, 2019 12:36 am

So, I applied in early January and my stats are:

GPA: 3.78
LSAT:157 (the LSAT really kicked my ass)

*I also have a ton of extracurriculars such as president of the Black Student Union(BSU), Tau Sigma Honor Society, Fundraising chair of Mortar Board National Honor Society, a writer for the UCLA undergraduate Law Journal, as well as participation in multiple voter registration campaigns and a legal internship.
** current UCLA undergraduate with LOR's from UCLA professors
***I am also a POC

Do I have a solid chance of getting in? I know my LSAT score sucks.

Your odds of getting into UCLA are ok-not-great at this point. If you do get in, I wouldn't expect a lot of money.

But why so focused on UCLA? What are your career goals?

How and how much did you study for the LSAT?

I studied about 20 hours per week, not including the in-class sections with Blueprint.

I currently attend their and I would like to stay in LA and ideally practice here. I also get free tuition as long as it's at a UC.
