Considering applying PT and transferring to FT. There is no guarantee his will work out, so it'd be nice to know the answer to the question.

E.g. GULC PT vs FT, Fordham PT vs FT

Thanks for your input.

Choosing the Right Law School / 2.76/166
« on: October 17, 2009, 12:34:57 AM »
- 2.76, computer engineering in good Canadian university, upward trend (final year 3.90)
- 166 on Sept09 LSAT
- Employment: 16-month co-op program plus two 2-month summer internships => 20 months total

What are some reach and realistic schools in tier 1 that I have a shot at, given that:
1) It's still early in the cycle
2) The degree is from engineering

This morning I looked at my apps and the LSAT part said "you do not have a reportable LSAT." Just now (2pm EST) I checked, and it says that I do!

The PDFs aren't out yet though

In at least some of your apps, don't you have to specify who the recommenders are? If so, how are you going to deal with those professors you wrote down but never get a LOR from?

Otherwise, I'd just shoot for other people to write you 2 quick LORs.

I gave all your suggestions some thought, added some new content, and made a new addendum. If there is new feedback, please do share! Thanks all for your support.

The calculator I suggested takes into account "splitter-ness". I already looked at LSN, but there just isn't that much information for splitters, especially in my case (a few data points is there, but doesn't tell much).

The more extreme the split, the harder it is to find others in the same boat and compare

Using with Boston U, a 2.76/170 and a 3.46/163 gives the SAME index score of 197.60.

The site gives 5 ratings: Deny, Weak Consider, Consider, Strong Consider, Admit

Whereas a 3.46/163 gets an outright Deny, the 2.76/170 gets a Consider.

My guess is this has to do with the splitter being able to at least pull up BU's median LSAT, while the non-splitter is a drag on both scores. Might there be other factors, like BU liking splitters?

Can anyone confirm this or give additional insight? Thanks.

So does that mean that among the top 30 schools, the higher the rank, the more likely you can find a biglaw job given the same class rank?

Are there notable exceptions in this range?
