So I was mulling through LSN and non-URM people with my similar numbers high GPA, low LSAT(3.8/161), who seem motivated almost always apply to Emory, Vanderbilt, BC and BU. Almost everyone gets instantly rejected from both Boston schools. But Emory and Vandy are tossups, with a lot getting waitlisted.
I know everyone says that the law school application process is a cr'ap shoot, but I was wondering if anyone in a similar situation had words of wisdom on how to approach the Emory and Vanderbilt applications.
I figured my Personal Statement and LORs will help me a lot, but a good portion of my PS deals with the small, poor backwards Georgia town that I grew up in and how I'm now interning in Geneva, Switzerland working on arms control negotiations. I'm not sure this emphasis on my hometown will help me much with the southern schools i'm applying to, but maybe with the NE ones?
