What are my chances for top 5?
Currently a Junior at UT Austin, major in Corporate Communication, certificate in Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Total GPA: 3.90 (if this number posts redundantly, sorry, on mobile and formatting is sketchy)
Other institutions include some community college classes (4.0), American University (4.0), Cambridge (4.0), and the Chinese institution where I studied (Yunnan Normal University).
MIT (public policy office in DC) in 2016
Congress in 2016
Local law firm in 2015
GPA is a bit low since I did a summer immersion program in China to speak fluently and got a B-.
Planning to take 6 months after graduation for intensive LSAT study with a tutor and work experience. I'm aiming for a 175LSAT. Not sure how realistic that is though.
What are my projected chances right now? Am I still on track even though my GPA took a hit? My university doesn't offer A+ grades.
This year I'm planning on doing research and next summer I'm hoping to go to Africa to volunteer.
Top choices are:
Please tell me what you think, thanks! Also, does the LSAC go off of the number grade or the letter grade on your transcript? As far as I'm aware my community college gave me an A on my transcript for a 92% in Chinese. They didn't post the number, so will it be counter as an A since that's what's listed? I counted it as an A in my calculations for that reason since I'm not sure my institutions actually have a record of the specific score, only the letter grade.
