Title: chances at Howard Law
Post by: toddyky18 on December 27, 2010, 05:52:03 PM
Could anybody answer, what are my possible chances of getting into Howard Law with a 152 LSAT and a 3.3 gpa?

Slim to none. Retake untill you get a 160 and retake a bunch of crazy easy undergrad classes(whatever ones that even stoners take and ace nowdays)
to raise the GPA. Then you should be ok. Nothing wrong with looking at the other hundreds of options either too though.

Dang kid, I know lawyers don't need to know math, but please tell me you know the difference between two numbers.
160-x=not 160.

Plus its a ceiling not a floor. If you show up with that you MIGHT get in (still slim to none in all reality) but be going up against an entire nation of people who believe the earth will open up and swallow their very souls if they don't gain admission, and they will be legacies who's daddies and grandaddies went there.  (If you are Ted Kennedy you can lie, cheat, get a 2.0 and be aces) but otherwise you will be up against those shoeins(who you can never beat, get over it) and the regualr joes and janes who all have 170-180 and a solid 4.0(since they all cheated and attended schools with extended GPA scales).

There you go.

Son, I don't think you'll know what you are talking about. I'm asking about Howard not Harvard. You talking about 170-180, what? I'm over the 25% in both gpa and LSAT at Howard, when the hell does mean slim to none? Or you two even in school?

Although Howard offers a wide array of career options to many of its graduates, gaining admission to the school does not require numbers far greater than those required by its third-tier peers. Their median LSAT score and GPA for matriculants in 2009 was 153/3.20

Pulled from a profile of them.  Ignore the trolls

I appreciate that, hearing from somebody with some real knowledge. With my numbers being right around both of those numbers and have 7yrs work experience in the military, I'm keep my hopes high. Thanks again.

First, you can join the military with a 31 on the asvab(dont have to be a genius there bro) and a D-average in adult ed.
Military is awsome, but not proof in and of itself of ability to do beyond your MOS. Been there, done that, boohoo.

Second, you act like the top quarter is bragging rights. You realise how huge of a chunk that is right? You get into top single digits then brag. Untill then, its nothing to act smug about.

So a 2L has less knowledge than a 0L. All you've proven is that you will listen to a jobless guy that says what you want to hear about your resume over someone who's employed. Enjoy the hamsandwiches bro, I hear they're worth the hour long line in the cold to get to them.

Interrex you must be bored or something. I was asking about my chances at Howard, what the hell are you talking about? It doesn't matter that you are a 2L, obviously that doesn't make you have knowledge about chances at Howard. I'm not trying to entertain your ignorance, so let me try to get some real info and you go about your business if any that you have.

waahhh wahhh  :'( All I hear from you when you talk scrubby.  You have a job like law schools count jobs.  You are in the other category of scrubbing toitlets.  So keep wahhh wahh  :'( every night you are on your knees taking it from whoever gives your fake tough guy persona who has never done anything real (don't forget to get tested, you never know what the johns have).  You sit behind the computer, probably touching yourself, although from your attitude, you are compensating for something.  So maybe you don't touch yourself for you are embarassed.   wahhh wahhh  :'( Mommy and Daddy never loved you.  Tough.  Deal with it scrubby.  Wahhhh wahhh  :'( Go to whatever school you claim to go to, skate by with less than median grades, keep thinking that Cooley is the best school. wahhh wahhh  :'( When you grow a mind, not to mention a set, maybe then I can take you serious scrubby.  I think a john is at your door, go take it from stangers as you do best hahahaha

Let me make life super easy for you. If you want to know about college don't ask only those still struggling to get a GED,
same idea here.

If you don't want to listen to a lawstudent, then (crazy thought) contact the school and ask them. Then apply. Then tell us how you did.
You don't want info you want people to tell you are correct even when you know they know less than you do. There is your answer. Try not to choke on it.

don't pretend to be the thing that I will talk down about in refernce to your being part of.............plus your above post in reference to not being in a school reply was that it is a "better" one that you are not in? Nice.

AA male, 2.9 and 147. Strong LOR's, essays and nice amount of significant work experience. Do I have a chance at getting into any school lol? Howard is the top choice... Thanks!

Check out lawschoolnumbers.com best site out there. Last year it looks a URM with a 149 and 3.34 was wait listed and ended up attending somewhere else, but they were on the radar. http://howard.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/0910/  That is the link for the 2009-2010 applicants. I would say you have a shot, but not a great one at Howard. Well good luck!

I have a quite serious question that SOUNDS tongue in cheek:

Is there any way that a non-URM could be considered a diversity candidate at an HBCU like Howard?  My numbers should exceed the
75% marks, and was wondering if reversing the trend (non-URM--->HBCU) might win scholly $$.  I also retired from the military, so have that
ticket punched as well.

I would like hearing something from anyone, especially the Mods who might have some serious info.

I am all about not incurring much debt for that Bar Exam ticket....

Why slim to none? My friend got into Howard Law with a 3.3 and a 148 and 149 on the LSAT. To boot, he won a scholarship as well.
