Law School Applications / How good are my chances?
« on: October 24, 2003, 01:52:55 AM »
Hi, I'm trying to decide where to apply...

LSAT: 171-175
GPA breakdown:
  freshman - 3.08
  sophomore - 3.76
  junior - 3.85
  senior - 3.83
3.61 UGPA upon graduation
3.65-3.67 LSAC... MAY be able to break 3.7.

class rank: top third?  no idea.  average GPA is around 3.35.

Do I have a chance at Yale, Harvard, Stanford, and Columbia?  What do you think me chances are... 40/60?  30/70?  What about Georgetown, NYU, U Chicago?  

Activities aren't great: Only one leadership position (freshman leader) for sophomore year.  Abroad one year.  Riding team.  Religious group.

Major: English.  Possibly English/Philosophy double major.

Do you think I should just take a year off after graduation, maybe work... then apply the next year?  I'd have to work somewhere impressive, though, wouldn't I?  How can I get that kind of job without being a law student?
