They never told me that my application was complete, but I just got my acceptance from them this morning via email. I'm shocked--because I only sent out my app. 3 weeks ago. Best of luck.

Brooklyn just sent me a letter entitled "candid advice" which basically suggested that if I retook the LSAT, I might have a better shot at admission because of my good GPA and ECs. I basically read that as, take the LSAT and up your score to even have a chance, period. Needless to say, I registered for the Feb. 10th test as a result of that letter. Damn, I thought I was done breaking out my practice tests and timer. :-D
What's wrong with Seton Hall, exactly? I've heard that it has a pretty solid reputation. It's definitely not comparable with Franklin Pierce at all.

I'm in the same boat is you. My LSAT scores are ehhh and I don't understand what my chances really are at certain schools. I've used the calculators and looked up median gpas/lsat scores, but it's just confusing. What really throws me off is when they display their 25-75 percentile LSAT scores. I feel like it's impossible to tell how much they deviate from those numbers on the lower end of the spectrum. For example, my LSAT score is a 158 and that's in the 25th percentile @ Tulane. That doesn't tell me anything about my shot of getting in, except that I'll be lucky if I do! Basically, I wished they showed more statistics...like the lowest LSAT score accepted and possibly the GPA/LSAT equation they use if applicable.

...I have no idea which schools I'll get into because my numbers are so borderline for the whole top half of that list.
Ok, so I didn't do well on my LSATS. Let it suffice to say I had to take GWU and GT off my list...haha. I don't know if it makes a difference, but I'm a double major (English and Sociology) at a top public school in the NE.
Based, on my stats, here's the schools I'm looking at now:
Ok, so some questions:
Have I classified these schools correctly, or am I overestimating myself?
I'd like to stay on the East Coast, ideally in the Mid-Atlantic or New England regions. Does anyone have any additional suggestions of schools in these areas that are reasonable for me and have a good reputation?
Does anyone go to and/or know anything about any of these schools? I've read several law school guides up and down, but I know they're all advertisements and I want the real deal.
Thanks in advance for any help.
