So DU is my number one choice, but I'm a little nervous about my chances of getting in after a lackluster day at the LSATs....any predictions on me (3.2 GPA, 154 LSAT, four years work experience in Congress, masters degree, Colorado native)?
I think your numbers are borderline but you have a pretty good chance esp with your work exp. DU seems to like people who have worked. There's going to be a lot 3.2/154 applying to DU so make your application really stand out. DU really does look beyond the numbers...otherwise they wouldn't have accepted me (ha!)
2 more questions from me:.
1. Do I have a chance at CU with a 3.6/162?
2. Is there a chance DU will give me money with a 3.6/162?
A little about me: White, middle class, no outstanding ec's
I def think you have a good chance at DU. I would recommend applying for the Chancellor Scholarship but without any ec's it may just be a waste of time. If you apply now you have a decent chance at getting some money. Traditionally though, DU's famous for giving out a few BIG scholarships as opposed to a gazillion little ones.
Numbers are VERY important when applying to law school BUT it's NOT everything. Make your application stand out and you maybe plesantly suprised. Take some chances...what do you have to lose but a few bucks?
