I basically know that I am a 3 or 4th tier applicant, but looking for schools that I might have missed. Here's my info. Graduated with a 3.1 from UG which wsa converted into a sucky 2.7. I totally slacked off my first 2 years at school which is the reason for the law GPA. But the last 2 years, I have over a 3.4 each semester. I wrote an addendum adressing that. First LSAT 150 and recently got a 153 (after practicing around the high 150's), so bit of a shock there. 3.7 grad school GPA in psychology.
I want to go into mental health/family law so the top tier schools are not really that much of a priority. I'm from Maryland and want to stay somewhat local or less than 6 hours away. Here's my list so far: U of Baltimore, Widener, Suffolk, Pace, Penn State Dickinson, Quinnipiac (spelling?). Most of these schools have concentrations or clinics within my area of interest. I really, really wanted to go to Villanova, but think that is pretty much out. But not sure if I should apply anyway? Any thoughts or advice is neeed!
