Where should I go next fall? / Re: Emory 1L Taking Questions

Seriously though, that's right.  Check out the LSN graph from last year.  164 means gameover, unless it's 3.9+.  (Although, it's just a dead end WL, not a straight up reject.  But then, we can presume that the numbers will move up slightly, as they always do.)

Not every applicant used LSN. The median is 165 for your class. Unless you are suggesting that half of the class are URMs?

Hey yall!!

I'm planning to take the Dec. test and apply the first week of Jan. I am a URM and I have 1-2 years of experience working as a paralegal and a host of other soft's (sign language interpreter, mentorship programs, etc.) I went to GA State for undergrad and ended with a 3.3. (I had some serious issues in 2nd & 3rd year that killed my stellar gpa). I have been pretesting in the 158-162 range. Do I have a shot? I will be applying to GA State just in case, but I really want Emory. I had an opportunity to go to Emory undergrad but I let people around me talk me out of it. I wish that I had made different decision but I cant do much about it now. Don't get me wrong, I loved GA State, but I just wonder what if...

Thoughts???


As a URM, you'd have a shot.

how can you afford to pay back over $100,000 in loans on that?

On Long Island... yeah. That seems about right.

Where do you guys do Trivia?


I haven't seen any group of 2L dorks to rival us at Mellow Mushroom.



We used to go to Mellow Mushroom last year, but we moved on to dominate Hand in Hand this semester.
We dominated you 1Ls this past week... :P

Why was that a reply to me?

Oh, and if I remember correctly, I believe it was the Captain who administered the final-question ass-whoop.

And about our facilities, I went to a really modern (and bucolic) undergrad, so I expected anything would be a downgrade, but I haven't been bummed at all about Emory's law building.  It's totally ugly on the outside, but the interior and the layout make it a pretty good place to spend your day.

The facilities get the job done, but it is a horribly ugly building all around. The interior isn't much better.

(i.e. just expecting to get a job from a frim coming to your school and interviewing you).

That is how I got one...

Edit:
Boo, delete Reez!  Not everyone knows I'm an LSD dork yet, do they?
(Oh and thanks, dude)

Screw it... it's been a while, I'll play:

Accepted:
Catholic, PT
Utah
Hawaii
St. Louis

Rejected:
Lewis & Clark
Houston

Waitlist:
Oregon

This is entirely random. No research was done, and I made my choices based on ignorance and gut feelings (just like the average voter! Thanks Mr. Spielberg!)

I will be accepted and denied/ waitlisted?

UGPA 3.58
LSAT 155
Grad school 3.74
2.5 years of full time employment
division I athlete


Catholic, Part-time
Utah, Full time
Lewis & Clark, PT
Oregon, FT
Hawaii, PT
Saint Louis, PT
Houston, PT

I realize there is LSN, Chiasu, and LSAC so I know my relative chances, however it would be nice to know how others feel about it, thanks!

I remembered [captain] posting on here last year.  I'm trying to figure out who you are!


The captain is the grinning idiot with a phillies hat on because the yankees suck this year.  and for the record, he has no friends inside or outside of the law school. and new jersey sucks.  and he still has not figured out who i am

I know exactly who you are, although I have never seen you posting here before. And FYI, I am way super-cooler than you, and better than you at trivia.
