Law School Admissions / Re: Another - WHERE CAN I GO?

that's a good site, thanks!

yeah i am overshooting i'm sure. keeping some safeties and not hoping for much on the top end, but worth a shot. maybe 1 will bite, and then it would all be worth it.
really depends on 3 factors - how they rank my undergrad school (if they want more schools represented), how they rank improvement, and how they like my PS/LORs. a lot is in the air.

Thanks for the reply, both of you.
Not sure where to do this, then. HMM
Not saying I was going to do this for multiple schools, just curious about the process.
Cheers and GL

Law School Admissions / Another - WHERE CAN I GO?

white male. good softs, solid PS/LORs, 164 lsat first/only attempt. cum gpa of crap... 2.7, but good progression, from 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 (or close to that). political science and economics. basic addendum for GPA.
did my undergrad at UBC in Canada which I think helps diversify the student body. I am completing my apps in the next week or 2, so they will in very early.

fordham PT (would love full time but unlikely)
george washington PT (for some reason they've mailed me a LOT through the LSAC)
georgetown PT
UC Hastings
UC Davis

should be able to:
Cardozo (they also sent me stuff through LSAC and waived the application fee)

Santa Clara
Univ of San Diego

Basically I have checked Chiasu, LSAC chance calculator, and LSN. But that does not factor PT chances or other factors. Give it to me strait if you can say anything else! Particularly in regards to PT.

makes up for it if you want a school like Gonzaga. Retake it, break 160, and your options are MUCH better.

interesting, we are about the same. I went to UBC, how about you?

My GPA is like: 2.0, 2.5, 2.9, 3.5 = 2.7 or something
I am going to say something similar. Same course load throughout, just unmotivated. Elaborate of course, but what else can you really say that is unique? They will see the trend, and that is the important part. Don't shoot yourself in the foot.

Just wondering HOW these are so binding?
I think they are a nice tool that can increase acceptance odds if you're on the edge, so I don't want to waste it. But they still give you some time before you must send in your deposits. So how do they force you to withdraw your other applications? Can they report you to the LSAC or anything?
Or is it an ethical pull?

You and I are in the same boat. In fact, I thought I was reading a thread I made and forgot about.

Good luck to us.

So either way they will see the grades, but *maybe* after they make a decision?
Can't change it anyway, doing the best I can, just thinking ahead...


Law School Admissions / Top 40 Part Time?
« on: July 12, 2009, 11:51:20 PM »
What are some Top 40 schools that have *quite* easier admission standards for PT?

I have around 3.0 GPA and a 164 LSAT. I am on the edge (probably some Waitlists) at some schools around rank 40. Is there anything above that where my scores can give me a shot PT?

Non-URM but I am confident with my PS, and 3 LORs.
