To the OP,

If your question was truly for a research paper on the feelings of African Americans and their reasoning for not posting their LSAT score, I would first have to question why this paper is of merit.  Seeing that you can only generalize to those students on LSN and LSD it doesn't seem like a very representative sample.  Secondly,  by stating your position on this site, has it ever occurred to you that you might bias your already representative sample?  Finally, chosing to draw your sample from a discussion board on affirmative action not only biases those already skewed and unrepresentative results that you found, but would certainly indicate to your sample that you have already made up your mind on this issue.  Finally, despite having the worst sample I have ever seen, how could you possibly ever confirm the people you are sampling are even of the race that they say they are.

With that being said, why don't you come out and just post your gripe with affirmative action.  If you want a real sample, then why don't you go to grad school and take some classes in survey design and research methods.  If you want to post your gripe, then just do it.  By the way, I am a white male so you don't have to jump to conclusions, but I guess you wouldn't know anyway would you!

Check the grade distributions under career services.  Most students get a B+ and they don't offer a rank as in 10/315, they give only a rough estimate of where you would likely stand in terms of percentile.

I am in and got the same stuff on the same day.  I think it is a fairly good school with a unique grading system- no class ranks and most students get B+.  They also house the Jurist online law news source which I think you can get on as a 1L.

Which of these four schools do you think would be the best to go to if one wanted a school with a good reputation that went beyond that region?

I think Wayne is better than both Toledo and MSU.  Granted Toledo is ranked higher based on US News, but you probably have to maintain a 3.3. and I heard that over half lose it.  Plus, career prospects are much better in Michigan if you go to Wayne.  The administration is slow, but I know the professors are really good.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to get some feedback.  Do you think it would be better to go to Wayne with 50% tuition but must maitain a 3.25 and be in a special program with presidents from the two law reviews and moot court or MSU on a full ride with a 3.0?  Thanks.

Sorry, I misred another post.  Although, I guess if there is a curve which I heard is set around 2.7 GPA at Toledo, then anyone who gets the full tuition will have to compete with students that only have three classes their first semester.  Unless anyone can tell me that a different curve is set for full time v. part time.

I have a full ride at UT, but I have heard that some have gotten a full ride through a transition program.  I am wondering if regular admits and transitory students would be competing to keep their scholarship since you have to maintain a 3.3 GPA and transitory students only take 3 classes v. the 5 classes for regular admits.  Any advice would be great.

If I want to work in Michigan, should I go to Wayne assuming I get about 2,000 or should I go to Utoledo on a full ride? Also considering Loyola Chicago, Pitt law, and Case if those would be a much better option for the Michigan market.
