Law School Applications / Re: My story, please advise

Hey man,

You got one thing going for you big time and that is that you're African American.  So the situation isn't as bad as it probably seems right now.  With that high LSAT score and some solid addendums, I think you're competitive for the bottom T14 and definitely somewhere in the Top 20.  And honestly, going to some school ranked in the 15-25 range is not the end of the world like it sometimes seems on this board.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: October 2008 Reading Comp bitchfest
« on: October 26, 2008, 02:45:06 PM »
Reading is traditionally my best section, especially with older tests.  However, as the tests got more and more recent, instead of missing one on reading, I began missing two.  And on the MOST recent ones, I started missing three.  This might be a trend that just applies to me. 

On the Oct lsat, I missed three on reading, all of which were in a row!  They all involved that talk stories reading passage.  Pretty tough.

Also, I didn't interview for Northwestern.  I thought that was pretty much required.

Bloom, I was on there a bit.  It seemed to me like my numbers were not competitive at all for NYU and Columbia.  More so for Berkeley and others.  Thanks for the advice though.  I do have the money to apply to more, but ideally, I'd like to remain west coast.  Problem is, UCLA scares me.  I had numbers for undergrad that were far above their averages and got denied.  So I'm fearing it might happen again.

Also, I didn't interview for Northwestern.  I thought that eliminated me right away.

What is N and V?  NYU and Vanderbilt?

I had this on the "where to apply board" but wasn't getting any hits.  I think this is a more active board.  Would appreciate any insight. 

169, 3.74 (2.5 years of engineering, then switched to polisci)

1.  Good personal statement I think
2.  Pretty good recs, three of them
3.  Congressional internship at a district office
4.  Intern for naval lawyer
5.  Worked throughout college
6.  Going to Southeast Asia to teach English for seven months before law school

My question is given the schools I've already applied to, should I apply to any more or am I nearing the end?  I'm a white middle class male

I've applied to:

Boston University, USC, UCLA, Boalt, Hastings, Uni of Washington, Fordham, and Loyola.

Think I have a shot at any of the T14?  Like say, should I apply to three of them and just see what happens?  Think I'll be seeing any money at the aforementioned schools?

Thanks for any help!

You guys all need a reality check.  165 puts you in the top 5%.  I work for very successful lawyers, one of who went to Loyola and the other who went to Rutgers.  The LSAT gets you into a good school.  It does not make you a good lawyer.

Man, this sucks.  I wonder what caused LSAC to deviate from its original pattern of releasing early.
