Post by: paul1454 on December 22, 2006, 09:14:45 PM
I have a 3.6 GPA (4.0 Degree) 162 LSAT. Worked full-time through school, officer of one club, represented my undergraduate school in a couple competitions, served in the Marines, and a few other soft factors. Do I have a shot in the dark at any of the schools listed below. I also have a couple alcohol related misdemeanors (that is why I have applied to a lot of schools).

Georgetown (PT)
George Washington (PT)
Vanderbilt
University of Notre Dame
American
Georgia
Washington and Lee
Illinois
American
University of North Carolina
George Mason (FT or PT)
Indiana Bloomington
Case Western
Wake Forest

sure, anyone always has a shot; the marines bit is the only interesting thing that you've mentioned, but it's very interesting. my suggestion is to look at lawschoolnumbers.com and the LSAC site, do your legwork, and see how many people with those numbers were accepted.

Without the alcohol misdemeanors, you'd have no problem getting into about six of those schools.  If you explain your criminal history well, I think you will still be ok.
