Where should I go next fall? / Re: 3.65 GPA 170 LSAT URM

You should go almost wherever you want.

Probably won't get Yale/Harvard, but I'd apply to any top school that tickles your fancy and see who accepts you and who offers you money.

What part of the country are you looking at? Where do you want to end up?

And that explanation is any less racist how?

That wasn't the criticism I responded to. You said I "assumed color." No, I didn't.

who's the racist? You assume color. How do you know he's not Asian? Or Bill Cosby?

I did not assume color. I said that the person sounded like an angry white person. I didn't say, "Quit being an angry white person." I said to quit sounding like one.

get a 170 and i'll bet you're in at just about all of those lower non-NYC-but-still-in-new-york schools

You can still fix your GPA. I don't know if YHS are necessarily still in play, but there is no reason you can't bring that GPA up and be competitive at most of the T14 with a high enough LSAT score and getting that GPA up. Keep in mind that all courses count toward your GPA; that includes, for example, community college classes.

Apply broadly and hope like hell. I'd bet that you'll get into at least one T1 school, but I wouldn't try to guess which one. haus is pretty spot-on.

I mean Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team nobody was saying hey man your a lock to be the greatest NBA player

MJ was never cut from his high school team. When he was a freshman, they left him on the JV team rather than put him on the varsity team. That's it. Everyone knew he was really, really good. This is one of those stories that sounds awesome, but isn't true (like Einstein failing math).

2.96/170 will at least give you a shot at the schools you mentioned. You're not out of it by any means.

If you get into and attend an ABA-approved law school, it seems like it would be a huge waste to then transfer to an online law school. You'd unnecessarily limiting your post-graduate options: you'd have fewer opportunities and fewer places where you could practice.

The FYLSE is an unfair exam because you are given 12 months to internalize concepts that really take more than a year to remember. 

plenty of people pass the bar by taking barbri and learning about things they had never heard of

and it's much less than 12 months of prep
