Hello, I am a 19 years old African American male who is about to graduate from college. I have a low cumliative GPA (3.1) and I haven't taken the LSAT yet. I think I could possibly score in the 160's on the LSAT. My GPA is low because I had to work 20-25 hours per week, while taking 18-21 credits a semester.I needed the money to support my family, I also have went through an extreme amount of extuenting circumstances. I lived in homeless shelter at one point. Anyway, what law schools could I possibly gain admission into? Will admission committees take my early graduation as a positive or negative? Thank you for any responses and have a happy holiday season.
I would just like to say thank you to everyone who has given me words of encouragement. I am not an emotional guy, but your kind words of encouragement really mean a lot to me. Now that I am thinking about, I wonder how I survived some of the things I did. I just want to let everyone know that anything is possible in life, the statistics were undoubtedly aganist me, however, I believe that I am living proof that anyone can beat statistics. I really want and NEED to take a prep course for the LSAT. Does anyone know of any programs for poor/minority students that give discounts or possibly free preparation to these type of students? Thank you.
Quote from: Kobe on December 23, 2005, 05:40:54 PMI would retake. But is it worth it if I only improve by 4 points ? I want to apply this cycle and Feb. is far too late from what I hear.So Northwestern and UMich really are a possiblity ?Well, where were you practice testing? 160 or so?I'd say Northwestern and Michigan are an outside possibility. It's worth it to try, but these would be your reaches if you're not re-taking. I would suggest: Arizona, Florida, Hofstra, Maryland, Miami, Rutgers-Newark, Temple, and perhaps Brooklyn. You'd stand a good shot at most of these. Any idea where you'd like to practice?
