Hi everyone,

Can you guys give me the pros and cons between these two schools?  Which one would you choose?  Why and why not?

Thank you

This better be flame or it may rank as of the dumber posts I've read on this board.

Maybe you should get a life! It seems like you get off talking schmack about people who you don't even know.  Stop wasting your time if you got nothing better to say or better yet if you got nothing better in between your ears!

Thanks for the advice.  I got accepted at Thomas Cooley and received a 25% scholarship.
Flame.  No way a 141 got a scholarship anywhere. 

Yes a 141 plus a 3.60 GPA did get a scholarship.  Go to Cooley's Website and check yourself.  ;D

take LSAT again, even if you did get into one of those schools... its not worth it going to those schools without any scholarships.  I dont think that you will qualify for any with your numbers, and why rack up debt to go to a school that isn't really marketable to begin with.  You have a decent GPA, I dunno about your school, just retake LSAT and work for a year!

A 2.4 is a pretty bad GPA.  I think it's the same as my bad LSAT score of 141.  So I'm sure I'll get rejected there too.

Are provisional schools any good?  Like University of LaVerne?

Thanks for all the reply, greatly appreciated!

Arggghhh.  I'm going to re-take the LSAT, I think it is more worth it to delay another year than going to a school where the attrition rate is high - especially knowing that first year in Law School is really hard.  I have taken test masters before but didn't finish because of my busy work schedule and didn't have much time to study but yes they are good.  Thanks. 

Thanks for all the inputs.  One more thing, I am still waiting for other schools.  Florida Coastal, Texas Southern, and University of La Verne (ULV is a provisional school - are provisional schools any good at all?)  I should be getting my decisions by then end of the month.  If I do get accepted from this last three schools, do you guys think It's good to go for it?  Thanks much.

Hello everyone!  I would like to know how to transfer after completing your first year from an ABA-APPROVED LAW SCHOOL.  Based on my research, schools don't pay much attention to your LSAT as much as they would if you were an incoming first year law student.  Some schools website stated that the admissions criteria is based on the student's first year academic standing, if the student finished the first year as one of the top students in their class, a dean's letter stating a record of good standing and the students class ranking but did not state any emphasis on the LSAT score, however, requests the copy of the LSDAS report.

I just got accepted from Cooley with 141 lsat score and a 3.60 gpa with a 25% honors scholarship offer.  So far, for me this is good since this is the first acceptance letter I received.  However, I was shooting to attend school here in Southern California but with my LSAT score - I'm getting rejected everywhere (of course, it's pretty obvious - It is a bad score).  I was thinking of maybe accepting the offer and try to aim high in my first year at Cooley and maybe transfer out back to Southern California and finish off my law school here.  Do you guys think I have any chances of getting accepted in Cali?  Perhaps, Southwestern or Loyola?  ---- I considered re-taking the LSAT to see what score I'll can get but I don't want to waste another year of waiting to be in law school.  Time goes by so fast.... :(

PS:  I also know that it is not good to have this plan of transferring out...  as some of you would say - this is a bad start.  But I just want to have all the options I might have in order for me to know how to move forward.  THANKS ALOT!!!!

Sad to say, but your lsat is a killer...  Retake the lsat and try to bring your average up.  You could also try to make a case that you improved from a 141 to a whatever.  Good luck.

Ok thanks Liberty Bell for your reply and your honesty.  I know it is a horrible score and trust me I agree... It is sad.  But thank you again and I will re-take the LSAT.  Good luck to you as well.


Can anybody tell me what schools would accept me?  I have been stressing out for the past two months of getting rejected.  I am currently still waiting on decisions from the listed schools below:

Southwestern Law School
Golden Gate University
St. Thomas University (Florida)
Florida Coastal
Texas Southern
University of La Verne
Indiana University - Indianapolis
University of Baltimore

Please advise.  Thank you very much.
