At NW last year, you can see that someone at 172/2.5 got waitlisted and a 175/2.66 got in.

The year before that, a 170/2.9 and 171/2.86 got accepted

The chances are low for any one school but if he applies to 8 out the top 14 at least one will take him I think.

I wouldn't wed myself to GULC.  Draw up a really good personal statement.  And interview at NW.

I may sound greedy but I really want to get into T14. I think I have a good shot at GULC PT.

If I do aim for T14, do you think I should ED to GULC PT? Or would that be unnecessary?

Also another Q: Can I ED to both GULC PT and FT, or just only one of them?

I wouldn't.  I just showed you you have a realistic chance of getting into at least one of the full time T14 schools.  But hurry, it's getting late.  Unless you're talking about starting in 11.

I'd apply to every T14 law school except HSY and Berkley and hope to get into one.  According to the Law school calculator, your best chances are at

Northwestern-31%
Michigan-22
Cornell-17
Penn-15
Georgetown-10
Duke-9

That adds up to over 100%.  Chances are you won't be rejected by all of them.  Good luck!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Cooley: one of the greats

Wow, I was happy to get into Chicago but now I see that they're two spots behind Chicago-Kent on the Cooley rankings.  Does anybody know if it's too late to apply there?  I'm guessing 21 Layola is out of my range.   ;D

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / What is T2, T3, T4?

I'm guessing the T14 are T1 and Cooley is T4, but what is everything else in between?

What's your alternative?  Everybody gets guaranteed a job after law school that pays the exact same amount?  Or how about instead of LSAT scores and GPAs everybody gets to spend a weekend fishing with every single admissions counselor?   :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: This is a Sad LSAT Score Story...
« on: December 30, 2009, 01:21:28 AM »
I once saw an URM who got into Cornell with a 150, so it doesn't take much for  W&M.  I would try it.

137,142 =/= 150...at all.  There is a certain threshold one has to meet, even for a school like W&M which is quite respectable.

I skipped over the 137. 

At least with AA he'll probably get him in somewhere.  He may need to just lower his expectations.

Law School Admissions / Re: Need some advice - PLEASE 3.8 GPA 145 LSAT

I'm not sure.  But if you're not going to put in work to improve your score then there isn't much of a point to taking it again.  Much of the LSAT is natural intelligence, but you need to learn the logic games.

You're not going to guess your way to 170, which is at least what you'll need to make up for the first score.

I don't know.  Did you study well for the LSAT?  If you did your best and only got 145 it's really doubtful you'll be able to pull your score up high enough for Michigan.  If there's a really good reason for your low score and you think you can score a 170 next time then go ahead.
