Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 3.95/164 Please Help!

I would definitely retake if those are the schools you are looking at.  They are all out of range at this point.  However, you are definitely in range for some really good schools like BC, BU, Notre Dame, Emory, and Fordham.

this is correct

I posted in another thread so sorry to do this again but I'm in need of advice. My sept LSAT score puts me beyond t14 schools, but I still wish to apply to a few and pray that I will ride a waitlist in. Is this at all realistic?

I am looking at Duke, Cornell and Georgetown as reach schools. Would also going for Michigan and Berkeley be just throwing away my money? I am a Berkeley undergrad and was elected vp of the student government, but I don't know if this really helps me any with Boalt.

For target schools, I have a long list...UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt, UT Austin, Washington, BU, GW. I would be happy if I can make it into UCLA. My GPA is above their median, and LSAT is at the median. Does this give me a barely higher than 50-50% chance?

You could apply to Georgetown part-time.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: where to apply- 3.27/ 167 ?

3.27/ 167 (just got the score-- i had been planning on Penn as ED/reach because my practice tests were usually a lot better, now I don't know what to do). graduated from an Ivy with grade deflation, art history major. I am thinking Rutgers, Temple, Villanova, Fordham, Cardozo. I might still do ED for Penn even though I have no chance just because it's my dream school.
Any advice? Thanks!

W&L, GW, WUSTL, BU, BC, Emory...

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Chances

anything?

Without knowing more about you, I would say that you have an outside chance. Your LSAT is a few points off the median and your GPA is right at it. Your military service will be viewed very favorably. It is also a plus that you are in-state resident. I would recommend crafting an interesting PS which accentuates your leadership experience and explains how your unique experiences as a solider will make you a beneficial addition to UNC law.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Is it worth applying to Tulane?

I don't think it's worth it full price. Maybe not even half price...

This is true to the extent that no low Tier 1 private school is worth full price. Yet among other overpriced lower T-1 law schools, Tulane is certainly one of the better options.

Law School Admissions / Re: 3.5/166 UCLA? Vandy? UT?

Should I try applying early somewhere?

You are about median at GW and WUSTL. Those might also be good target options.

According to the American Bar Association, when my father began his legal education in 1968, there were just 3,554 women enrolled in ABA-accredited schools; when I began law school in 2005, there were 66,613. In 1971,  just 5,568 minority students attended ABA-accredited law school; in 2005, 29,768 did. Thereís a good chance my father couldnít get into the University of Michigan Law School today with his old scores.

Thatís the kind of sound-minded evaluation that can only be done in retrospect; before taking the LSAT, all I knew was that I had to score at least a 170 so I could get into my fatherís law school or else, like scientist George Darwin, Iíd be forever doomed to work in my fatherís professional shadow.


Can't get into daddie's law school? Boo hoo.

Alcoholics Anonymous thinks North Carolina is in their "Southeast region" (as distinguished from the immediately contiguous "Northeast region," which does not include NC):

http://www.area36.org/images/RegionalMap.gif

USInfo website considers North Carolina part of "The South"

http://usinfo.state.gov/usa/infousa/facts/factover/ch2.htm

Wikipedia's article on "Southern United States" includes North Carolina for BOTH it's "historic" and "modern" definitions (see maps on right side of page, near top):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_United_States

That page also includes a link to the US census regions, which includes NC as part of the South.

I'm sorry someone seems to have misunderstood, that the fact that I found part of an argument immaterial somehow meant I disagreed with the conclusion of the argument. It's a really simple concept:

My opinion: NYT article does not prove NC is in South
does not mean
My opnion: NC is not in South

Basic LSAT-type stuff.


You are very odd.

Even the NY Times considers North Carolina part of the South.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/16/us/16drought.html?em&ex=1192766400&en=743d7c1295778e7a&ei=5087%0A

Immaterial. NY Times considers everything south of Tribeca "the South." Manhattanites are notoriously provincial. I'd be more impressed if you could find a Miami paper that considers North Carolina to be "southern."


Could you please post a link from any major newspaper which supports your contention that North Carolina is not part of the South. So far, the US map, the NY Times, and history disagree with you.

Anything north of south carolina is not the south.

Live with it.

Two of the most "Southern" states in the union, Tennessee and North Carolina, are both north of South Carolina.

Yeah, but how could North Carolina be in the South?

What is your point? How could West Virginia be in the East?

Even the NY Times considers North Carolina part of the South.
