Title: 3.08 GPA/145 LSAT
Post by: zacharyl20 on July 22, 2008, 01:50:01 PM
Hello all: Based on my GPA/LSAT score where do I have a legitimate chance of being admitted. Just to give some background info about me. I am an African American male who once lived in a homeless shelter and grew up poor. Thanks for any assistance you can provide me.

You're background and stats look tailor-made for the NCCU School of Law.  #1 rated "best value in legal education" by National Jurist and Prelaw Magazine ;D

You'll need to show demonstrable interest in community service to get in with your #'s, but they love "pull yourself up by your bootstrap" stories.

Might want to rethink the Hummer though.  The median starting salary for NCCU grads (the 80% who actually got jobs 9 months post grad) is only about 55K a year

good luck

Wow!! 55K is not much at all. I am making 70k (not including bonus) in my present job. If that is the case, then I don't think law school is worthed.

Do I smell a flame here?...

That's the median.  The highest of 2006 was 110K, but I don't think one should go to Law School for the money anyway, and especially not to a non-tier 1 with a history of placement in public-government-small firm employment

OP: My client is INNOCENT!
Lawyer: I disagree
OP: Fair enough, you win

Well..I didn't give up my dream of being a lawyer. I simply stated the obvious. If you're making $70,000 a year. Why would you go to school for three more years and incur a huge amount of debt to make $50,000? It's simply a logical question.

Some people think beyond the all mighty dollar. And that's perfectly logical.

Somebody who makes sh*t up and posts it because he knows it'll get people fired up.  It often involves so called "lower tier" schools in one fashion or another.  So since I'm attending one of those schools, I try to be on the lookout.
