nothing to lose with a retake. but that said miami for fl, mercer and ga state for ga.

why when you do those score numbers (i had the same basically) on the lsac website does it say that people basically dont have a chance in hell to get in?  i'd like to go to miami and have a 3.2 from Univ of MI and an MA from Michigan State with a 3.5 GPA.

Have you had a look at the Miami graph on LSN?
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/graphs.php?school_code=5815&program=1&date=20060703

i had never seen that.  didnt know of that site or this one.  so i guess if i can pull a 158 i'm doing pretty good for miami.  i would love to either go to a school in illinois, florida or the carolinas.  being a michigan native it wouldnt be too awful to go to an in-state but i'm ready to go out.  it is nice, though, to see i should be at the "michigan state or above" level.

any other school suggestions?  i was surprised to see you bust out a t100

Here are LSN search results for people from last cycle with 3.1 - 3.3 GPA range, and 157-159 LSAT range. Click on the names, and you'll see where each applied and what the outcome was.

did the link not come through?  thanks very much for this help

I'd have a hard look at U. Miami, if I were in your shoes. Underrated school by applicants, reasonable rep in the northeast, and fits your numbers.

jesus i never thought i could possibly pull miami.  i really hope i do pull that high of an lsat then.  what about a mid-range lsat score like the 156 i pulled out of my ass on the practice without ever having reviewed *&^%?

"I was an intern for Barney Frank" is kinda weak tea.

What about being a page for Mark Foley?

That's hardcore.

they've created an affirmative action category for that on admissions forms

3.20 GPA from University of Michigan - dual major in English and Political Science - in 3 yrs
3.50 GPA from Michigan State University - Masters in American Studies - in 1.5 yrs
LSAT was probably a high 150s, low 160s based on taking the practice with no studying but comfort with the reading portions and developed skill at logic games

Involvement in one successful Congressional campaign, work for state press association

I know I'm not going to any of the top 100 but if you knew of any solid Tier 3s I would have a shot at with around a 158 LSAT, i'd like the recommendations

Law School Applications / Does an MA/Graduate GPA help?
« on: October 11, 2006, 05:37:16 PM »
I can understand this might be the most effing retarded question that has been asked 90 times in the past 8 minutes but I have to ask:

I went to the University of Michigan and graduated in three years with a double major in English and Political Science.  I graduated with a 3.20.

I am graduating from Michigan State University after a year and a half with a Masters in American Studies.  A general sociology/humanities masters.  My GPA is a 3.50.

Simple math says my 3.5 in grad school is a bit better than my undergrad GPA.

Does improved academic performance post-undergrad factor in?  LSAC's calculat or OMG SHOULD I SLIT MY WRISTS OR TRY APPLYING HERE BASED ON LSAT AND GPA is a UGPA so I wonder.
