Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: SLU---help!!
« on: October 30, 2008, 12:42:38 PM »
I would like to stay in St. Louis post graduation, but have never lived there so I may end up not wanting to stay there. I have not retaken the LSAT yet, I'm stuck with a 160 right now. I'm very interested in their health care program, but haven't exactly narrowed down what specialty I want to go in yet...I'm also considering IUPUI, but I'm not sure the reputations these northern schools have. I know the rankings, etc. but it's going to come down to cost for me. However, I don't want to go to SLU just because it's cheaper if IUPUI is considered a way better school. I'm retaking LSAT in December and am hoping for a 165 so I can get some scholarship offers at other schools









I'm looking into going to St. Louis University b/c I love St. Louis and can't get into Wash U >:( anyway, does anybody know much about SLU's reputation? I'm not from the area so I am hoping someone on here has heard something about the school.I know they are ranking 95, which is definitely not impressive, but health care law is #1 in country. Other than those stats, I can't find anything!!

If you want to practice in St. Louis after you graduate, SLU or MU may be a better option than WUSTL anyways.  Are you actually interested in health care law?

Have you retaken the LSAT?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Emory 1L Taking Questions

What are the scholarship cutoffs?

It's going to change every year, and the GPA/LSAT scores are most likely going to go up a little every year.

Last year, with only a very few exceptions, it went:

165-166, 3.5-3.75 = $90k
165-166, 3.75+    = $96k
167+, >3.5        = $75k
167=, <3.5        = Accept
165-166, <3.5     = Accept
>164              = Reject
This doesn't count URMs.  Things are more volatile for them and soft factors seem to be more important.  I think there's a few people that got in with 155 and a good GPA, but I'd say you need a 159 to be pretty confident.  Most URMs got a $54k scholarship.

And yeah, some of that seems a little counter-intuitive.  They obviously played the "boost our medians" game, although I'm not sure how much of an effect this had on our 25-75 rankings.  Also, before someone asks, I don't know much about this year's numbers other than that our median GPA is about 3.55 and LSAT is "92%" (my LSAT was 166 and I was 93%, FWIW).

My LSAT is 160, GPA is 3.9 and tons of leadership but boring life experience. Should I not even waste application fee applying to Emory?  :'(

Where should I go next fall? / Question about fee waivers
« on: October 25, 2008, 02:50:25 PM »
I just got my LSAT score back and i'm applying to 10 public schools. ppl on here talk about how they are getting fee waivers in the mail, do these come to just people who have excellent scores? I got a 160 on my LSAT and GPA is 3.9. Is it likely that I will get some fee waivers if I hold off a few weeks? My cycle is going to cost $500+, but i've narrowed it down as much as possible

Average: 158

Actual: 160

The highest I ever got a practice test was a 162, so I was very excited with my score compared to how I had done in the past  8)

why do you say that? even though the boxes aren't updated? Man I hope you're right!

you need to add to the poll Saturday because that's when I think they're coming. btw nobody's box is updated yet, that other post is from 2006. Someone bumped a thread from this time in 06...pretty clever!!
