Where should I go next fall? / Transfer?
« on: January 19, 2006, 02:38:22 PM »
I'm really worried about my acceptance to quality schools because of my low GPA (2.4), even though my LSAT (170) does help. One thing I am considering is applying to mostly T50-T100 schools and even a few tier three schools and then transfering up if I have a really good first year. What are your thoughts on this? Does this seem like a sound strategy or would I be better off just applying to the schools I want and then if I get rejected taking a year or two off to work then reapplying? For that matter what do you think the odds are for a person in the top of his L1 class at a T50-T100 school or a third tier school to transfer into a T20 school?

Law School Applications / Über-splitter wondering where to apply

So I've wrapped up everything for LSDAS, I'm graduating in the spring, and all I have left to do is to apply... but where can I realistically expect to have a shot at acceptance?

My undergraduate GPA is a horrendous 2.4 (will be a little over 2.6 when at the time of my graduation) while my LSAT score is an above average 170 and I am extremely worried that if I don't choose my colleges carefully then I can look forward to delivery pizza for the next several years. Obviously I'll be ignoring first tier schools completely, but outside of that I don't know where to attempt. The Boston College calculator doesn't even guage people with scores like mine and I can't help but feel the predictor on the LSAC site is a bit misleading (according to which I have over a 90% chance at many second tier schools). I don't expect financial aid, but I'd like to go to the best school that will have me. Long story short, do any of you have any recommendations as to where I ought to apply (that is, if I should even bother)?
