Law School Applications / Re: Rejections from Law Schools
« on: April 18, 2007, 03:09:30 PM »
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.

General Board / Transfer Students.

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.

Please advise.  Thank you very much.

I would agree with TDJD.

How much did you study for the LSAT?

Thanks for your reply :)  I was reading practice test and books for a couple of months but was not taking any practice tests.  Then I stopped for three months and studied again the whole week before the LSAT.  So to tell you honestly, I would only consider a week total of studying. Good luck to you.

I would strongly advise taking next year off, working and studying for the LSAT.  Take it again in the fall.  You have an O.K average.  If you study hard enough and raise that score up, you will have a better shot at getting into a decent school.  Best of Luck 8)

Thanks for the advise.  I thought of that as well, I just didn't want to take another LSAT because I heard that, once you've taken the LSAT twice, it doesn't help on your application.  But I guess my case is different since I have a low LSAT score.  Good luck  :)

St. Thomas (Florida) / Waiting for Decision from St. Thomas

Hi.  I just wanted to make a post and see if anyone of you can advise me whether or not there's any possibility of getting in to St. Thomas with a 3.23 GPA and a 141 LSAT score.  I am a minority, received an AA in Criminal Justice graduated with honors from a not so known college, received a BA in Psychology from an accredited private university (Argosy University), have 6 years employment backgound from healthcare industry, background investigations and law firms.  I also interned for the DA's office in Los Angeles County for 4 months. 

I've been rejected from other schools that I applied for and as a matter of fact - I am already losing hope.  Please give me some advises if you guys can.  :) Thank you and good luck to you all.

Law School Applications / Rejections from Law Schools

Hello Everyone,

I am new here and just registered today.  I have been stressing for a couple of months now due to not receiving any acceptance letters from law school.  I applied to my safe schools but yet still got rejected.  I am left with 4 more safe schools that has not responded to me and I have no idea if they will send me an acceptance letter.  I have a feeling that they will reject me as well since I am starting to lose hope.  I went to an accredited private university (Argosy University) and finished with a 3.23GPA - BA in Psychology.  I also received an AA in Criminal Justice from a not so known College (Everest) and graduated with honors.  I received a 141 on my LSAT.  With all this information, is there any way that I will be accepted in an ABA approved law school?  :(  Thank you for your time.  Good luck to all of you.
