Choosing the Right Law School / Advice
« on: April 10, 2013, 09:09:41 AM »

LSAT: 150 (Retaking in June for better scholarships)
GPA: 3.56


KU: Total cost of attending $107,367 (Living expenses, books, medical, transportation, loan fees and personal expenses... I currently live in Kansas and qualify for grants but am not yet sure how much)
Washburn: $97,342 (Same)
UMKC: $107,163 (Same minus possible grants)

Ok... So I got unlucky with the LSAT's and took them during a school semester. It was my fault for waiting so long to take them. The test fell on the same week I had a 50 page paper of which I had to turn in and defend my topic. Stress took over and reflected on my score. Thus, I chose to, instead of taking it again in February in which I had a few other "fun" classes to be a part of, take it again in the summer and try my luck in at least applying to a few schools. These are my top choices mostly do to COA. I believe I can do much better on the LSAT and all of these schools said they would re-evaluate scholarships based on my new scores. However, I don't want to base my decision on possibilities which is why I put up the current cost with my current scores. With all of this said, I want to emphasis in either real-estate law or litigation of which all three schools have. Originally I wanted to do international law but am choosing against do to being confined to the Midwest. I don't want to wait another year and have excepted my position. IF I make it through my 1L in the top of my class then I guess I will consider transferring schools.

Based on all of this, which school is my best option. Any advice is appreciated.
