Iowa was my top choice of my targets and now that I have been accepted I would like to hear from someone who knows about the law school about employment prospects. I spoke with a 1L but they did not know much about this. I have thought long and hard about retaking the LSAT and waiting a year because I took about a 10pt hit on from my PTs because I was so anxious during the testing. I figured that a 160 LSAT and a 4.0 GPA would place me at a school where I would have a good chance of doing well. And I don't mean guaranteed top 10% but I figured I could at least stay in the top 30% or so. Is this true?

The 1L I spoke with said top 30% would give one a good chance of landing a job paying $85,000 or more. Does anyone have any real evidence that this is untrue?

P.S. I have already seen the JDUnderground link about how Iowa Law is so terrible. But I would like to hear some substantiative advice about the school good or bad

Thank you.

He's URM and "3.63 gpa(economics) and 157 LSAT."

I guess it was a good call not to apply.

In @ Vandy with these numbers

Wow! I badly wanted to go to Vandy but when I made a 160 on the LSAT I did not even apply. Are you URM?

Also I got accepted to Iowa.

Apparently those individuals have some strong feelings about Iowa. I would love to chat with a current or previous Iowa student about the school if there are any on this board. I cannot believe that it is as bad as the individuals on JDUndergroung thought, they were a little overkill. However, I will dig deeper and probably visit them.

I had a similar situation I had a criminal charge at age 15. I cannot tell you what kind of effect it is having on my applications but I have received 3 acceptances and at least one of those was a target. I don't think it has had too much of an effect because I explained the situation and how I have changed since then. Good luck.

Got an e-mail today and for some reason my status checker still says decision in progress. If any of you remember my previous posts about Iowa then you know how happy I am.

No, I am from Tennessee. However, you get in-state after one year at Florida so that is a huge draw.

160, 4.0 here. I have been accepted to Florida and Miami. I only applied to T1 schools other than Miami who gave me a fee waiver. I am holding out hope that a higher school will let me it but if that does not happen I will retake.

Law School Applications / what to expect
« on: February 19, 2008, 06:19:31 PM »
I am not completely sure about how the status checker thing works in conjunction with receiving a accept/reject notification. The three schools I have applied to that have status checkers are Iowa, Georgia, and Ohio State.

My question is if my status checker changes how soon should I receive notification of their decision. Would I receive an e-mail that day? For example, I have seen on Law School Numbers that Iowa had sent e-mail for acceptances. If I do not receive an e-mail is this a sign of a rejection? Do some schools send e-mail at first and latter in the cycle send letters?

Thank you to anyone who can provide insight.

I posted on this just a second ago. My acceptance was postmarked 1/29. The decision took about a week after I went complete.
