Stats: 151 (didn't take any course, just study on my own for few weekends), 3.37, NOT URM, Florida Resident, Average Law Student Age (23-26), few honors awards, few jobs here and there. Here is my list of schools (All Tier 1 and Tier 2 with the exception of Stetson, a Tier 3) with the 1 meaning first choices, 2 meaning second choices, etc. Law School Reasons1 Florida State University (Instate, great reputation in FL, close enough to Atlanta that I might get a job there too if I want)1 University of Georgia (Great reputation at South, low cost of living, great location, close enough to Atlanta, possible job opportunity in FL if I choose to)1 University of Florida (Instate, great reputation in FL)2 Univerity of Tennessee (Great reputation in TN, good reputation at South, hear great things about the location and cost is not that bad)2 George Mason University (VA is a beautiful state. George Mason is ranked pretty high and it's on the rise)2 University of Arkansas ACCEPTED with 1/2 tuition scholarship (Read that Fayettevill is an awsome/beautiful place to live. The cost for me to go to UA is comparable to go to FSU or UF. Possible job opportunity at the legal department of Wal-mart).3 Georgia State University (It's in the South...but I don't really want to live in Atlanta DURING law school because of the size of the city and the higher cost)3 University of Mississippi (Great reputation in MS, but..the lack of diversity(hispanics, asians) of the school and the entire state concerns me) 3 Stetson University (It's in the South..close to home...good repuation in central FL...but it's a Third Tier and the tuition is high)4 Saint Louis University (I applied there because it was free application)4 Louisiana State University (I want my money back!!..seriously..um..the cost of attending is low compare to lots of schools..it's in the south...but..Louisiana's law is slightly different from other states and that concerns me a little...and the environment in LA is not that great from what I have heard/read)4 Washington and Lee University(I applied there because it was free application) and it's located in VA. I was accepted to University of Arkansas (Tier 2) immediately after my file was completed with an index number of 196 (along with scholarship). Minimum for in-state is 199 and for out-state is 205. They claim that they only accept about 20 applicants each year with lower than the indicated index numbers. I wouldn't mind going to UA, but I would love to get into my 1st and 2nd choices. Since UA accepted me so soon even with such low numbers, do you think I have a good chance of getting into my 1st and 2nd choices? Any thought/opinons on my choices?Thanks.
QuoteI think your best shot would be Florida State out of them all. QuoteI hope you're right about this..FSU is definately on the top of my list. You don't think I have a shot at Stetson?Hey, maybe I'll surprise you soon and get into a couple more. QuoteUA's accepted people like you (and me) before QuoteDon't be so quick to categorize me with you. Just because your numbers are similiar to mine or even better than mine doens't mean you belong to my group. So far, I am in at a Tier 2..and you're out at a Third Tier. (I am so drunk )FloridaLaw.
