Law School Admissions / QUICK READ! PLEASE RESPOND!
« on: December 14, 2014, 05:16:03 PM »
I'm a Hispanic male with a 3.5 GPA from Texas A&M University. The highest LSAT I scored was a 153. I have an impressive resume, great letters of recommendation and a strong personal statement/addendum's etc.   

I've read online that being a URM can give minority applicants a substantial advantage (which would obviously be great)

Is there any truth to that? If so how much help would it give me? 

5-10 points on LSAT?

Any comments/advice are appreciated! Thank you!

As I'm finishing up my applications I'm starting to get really nervous that I'm not going to get in anywhere... Everyone around me seems to have higher scores and I feel like such an Idiot! I hate my life... I know I'm dramatic and everything will be fine but I just need to know if I'm setting myself up for disappointment?

I've taken the LSAT twice.. 152 the first time and 153 the second... I have a 3.46 cumulative GPA ... I started at a jr. college and have several junior college transcripts (whatever I could find to fit my schedule) but the majority of the hours I've earned are from a tier 1 public university in Texas and I have a 3.82 BA political science.

I've spent several summers abroad, worked in the summer, am a member of several clubs and hold a position in one.

I also have really really great letters of reference (ex: Federal Judges)

I'm also Hispanic

I'd like to go to

UT - which would obviously have to be a miracle
University of Houston
South Texas

I know I'm on the low end for the majority of schools listed above but I've heard that they're "desperate to fill seats" so do I have a chance??? Any help/suggestions appreciated! Thanks!
