Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 165 / 3.76

Was also thinking about sending an app to G-town PT...what do you think are the chances there? and also what are the positives and negatives of doing a PT program...curious to find out?

Do employers treat G-Town PT any differently, and is it easy to transfer into the full-time program?

No I am not currently in the military, but it is an option.  Even so, I would need to apply for the FLEP Program to get money towards a public law school. 

Most liklely a re-take in September than see how I do, how my app cycle goes, and then decide to either take one of my acceptances or apply for the officer school.

Well here is the story...two very different paths that I would like to go down.  One is eventually to Army JAG, the other is practicing energy law, hopefully in some capacity with the Department of Energy. 

Thanks for the input, help, optimism, pessimism, I probably will retake just not quite sure yet.  My other, non-law school option, is Army Officer Candidtate School, so we shall see what happens.

I am interested in three areas primarily, Chicago, Boston, and California...but essentially would like to be near a larger city.

BC and UCLA look to be my top choices right now, but would love to go UMICH.  Debbating a re-take but not sure if I should.  Practice tests ranges from about 160-170 so right in the middle of that.

Well here is the same ol story, 165 and a 3.76...looking at top 20ish as my reaches and top 30ish as my targets.

Does this seem about right to everyone?  It seems like this type of score requires a shotgun approach to the top schools.  Any insights on chances/schollies?

Yeh I have looked into FLEP, and for the reasons you mentioned it did not appeal that much.  I understand the risk of OCS and would actually like to be commissioned into a combat role (Armor being the preferred MOS)...What I am having the most trouble with is the timing of everything.

I guess if I served my three years and that was it I would end up applying as a twenty-five/six year old.  Definitely not an old applicant by any stretch.

Just two very different paths, but both appealing at the same time.  It is not simply the task of listing the pros and cons like one can do for two different schools; rather, it really seems like a gut check is necessary on this one.

These are the two paths I have been wrestling with.  I will be taking the LSAT in June, and both have appealed to me for a long time.  Army Jag is a definite possibility in the future, and OCS would help me get my foot in the door there.

Basic plan of action is to see what happens with the LSAT and applications and re-evaluate the situation come January or so, but any help, thoughts, or info would be appreciated.

wow the columbia student senate is a real barrel of laughs

Yeh but who would want to live in Chambana as anything other than an undergrad

When it comes to these Chicago schools outside of Chicago and NU...Loyola, Kent, and DePaul still receive OCI from the major Chicago firms.(Kirkland, Sidley Austin, etc.) 

I personally believe DePaul is the right choice here.  Its downtown campus is growing into something of an actual campus.  It is awesome to walk down jackson and see DePaul flags hanging on the whole street.  Plus if you ever feel like making the trek up to lincoln park, you feel right at home as a DPU student.

When it comes to IP, Kent sometimes takes the cake because of the undergrad lean.  The truth is that both are above average for tier 2 schools and both have been on the rise in recent years. 

Ultimately your choice, but I believe they are very similar, so why not take the cash.  PLUS you get the added bonus of having the daley's as alum  ;D ;D
