Law School Admissions / UNC Chances
« on: March 01, 2009, 07:50:05 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I have a 3.7 GPA and a 162 LSAT.  This is dead on with the median LSAT/UGPA for UNC admission listed on Princeton Review, but when I plug it into the LSAC calculator it gives me a 25% chance of admission.  I know these two things are not the bible but I find the disparity a little shocking.  I'm a non-resident of North Carolina, what are my chances?

i've been passively reading the top law discussion all day...some of those people are out of their minds...

allegedly someone who took the test at fordham got their score, but my box isn't even filled yet.  oh the humanity!

i have a blackberry, every time i see the little light blink my heart skips a beat, i kind of wish i could just disable the emails until i get my score because this is a little ridiculous.

okay, so i have some definite interest in a JD/MBA program but i haven't fully committed myself to anything yet.  to give a little background, i work in advertising and love it but my job is the kind that when you get too high up, you're no longer doing what you're good at.  so i took the LSAT as a pre-emptive strike for when the day comes that i am no longer happy here.  my plan has been to take my current work experience and go into media/entertainment law, consumer affairs, or get a JD/MBA but i'm still trying to find my niche and i always thought i'd figure that out during my first year at law school.

can you maybe give me more information about what is required when applying to a JD/MBA program?  i was under the impression that you could do that after getting into law school and completing the first year but these posts indicate otherwise.  i realize this is in the wrong thread but some advice would be appreciated!

Personally, I am scared sh*tless about the results because I thought this test was much easier than December's. 

i agree!  this was my first time taking the LSAT but i left feeling pretty good, which is kind of terrifying.  i didn't think the RC or LG sections were too bad, so i'm just hoping i didn't bomb LR!  lately i've been second guessing myself a lot and then i had a dream that i got a 156 (i'm trying to break 160) so my ability to handle anxiety appears to have gone down a lot  :-\  i swear i'm not usually like this!

seriously, you need to calm down.  you're doing worse because you're burning out.  relax!  if you just keep your head clear you're going to do very well!  good luck!

as you can see with my practice sections, I am far away from my goal - 170+.  Thats the main thing that worries me.  Time flies and I feel like I'm going to run out. 

time flies and you still have room for improvement, but you're not too far away from your goal at the same time.  even if you're getting 17 total questions wrong, you're around a 165 (give or take a point or two).  see here:

i understand you feel time crunched, but you're going to burn out if you don't give yourself a break.  your brain and body need time to recover from stressful periods such as midterms; there's a reason you get a week-long break right after it!  based on what you are saying, i do think you might be approaching burnout.  if you don't recharge your batteries you will burn out and it could happen when you really can't afford it.  take a break from studying while you still have time!
