i dont know if i agree if the above post, but ill say it read genuine , and the poster seems nice enough. as for your numbers, my best advice is to retake the lsat and see what happens. If not, apply anywhere you want. it is your perrogative and no one has the right to berate your choice of schools. you may get in. stranger things have happened. I'm a non URM 1L at ft usd law and i got in with a 148 with no strings attacthed like going through some cleo program or head start deal. I even got a bit of money. i dont believe there was anything spectacular about my gpa, my LOR's, or PS. so i think its all really a crapshoot, these adcomms are all wonky anyways. i am not suggesting that i am the norm, but i think your case is not as dire or outrageous as it seems, and who knows...if those LOR's are as good as you say they are i can only reply: 'why not?'

If you don't mind my asking. . .for the USD students:

Do you know of any students who have access to resources in the Peace Center at USD?  I'm sort of drawn to USD because of that particular institute, and I'm wondering how realistic it is to think one could get involved in it during law school.

Did that make any sense?  Apparently I'm sleepy and sleepy doesn't come out coherent at times.

if i remember correctly, there are dual degree programs you can do with the ipj center, and you can always audit courses.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 149/2.5 whaddya think???

i got into usd ft with a 148, so my answer is...why not, apply to them all.

and for all those 'lsat score correlates with grades' ppl, dont listen to them, lsat tests nothing and in no way is indicative of your law school success. and without sounding like a jackass and listing grades,im doing just fine.

am i really a noob? i believe i have more posts and registered before you...but im not sure, my math is off. i suppose thats why im in law school. btw..what law school do you go to?

Minnesota.

I somehow doubt that you've had more posts.  You may well have registered before me, though (I'll take your word for it), so I'll retract the newbie portion of the comment.

i dont know about you...but im laughing. i heart discussion boards.

flame

University of San Diego (especially since I live right next door to it)...LOL

There is a lot of mentorship going on for current students. The only thing is that the school is very expensive and most scholarships only last for the first year of law school. They do have a part-time evening program. My interaction with the USD law school staff when I was applying was not so positive. They seemed to be "bothered" by anybody making an inquiry. The law library staff is really nice and the professors that I met were friendly as well.

So, USD is your best bet for BIG LAW, in my opinion. 

Vera :)

You think USD is a better bet for San Diego biglaw than Harvard?  Stanford?  UCLA, even?  It would be nice if some of your reasoning could be geared towards explaining why that might be the case, rather than noting merely that the people are nice there (which is a positive, to be sure, but it doesn't in any way speak to the conclusion that "So, USD is your best bet for BIG LAW, in my opinion").  (The word so sets that out as a conclusion, rather than just an unrelated assertion.)

I'm sorry, you're calling me, or my post, flame?  Yeah, you should probably not talk anymore.  n00b.
