Anyone else have advice?

Choosing the Right Law School / What should I do? URM 3.4/152
« on: November 24, 2008, 09:41:40 PM »
I am an African-American male with a 3.4 GPA at Cornell University. I have a ton of leadership experience. My only problem is my LSAT score. I have been getting in the 152 range on practice tests and I am registered to take the December exam. I was hoping to go to a T14 school or Fordham in NYC. Do I still have a chance at any? I really don't want to take time off between undergrad and law school. What would you guys recommend? Should I take the December LSAT? Is it possible to improve 10 points with two weeks left? Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

Law School Admissions / "W" Withdraw on Transcript?
« on: March 25, 2008, 08:30:22 AM »
Hi all. I'm considering withdrawing from a class. It is late in the semester so I would have a "W" on my transcript. If I don't withdraw from the class I will most likely get a C on my transcript. I currently have no C's on my record. Withdrawing from this class would put me at 12 credits? Is this bad? Is it worth it to get a "W"? How will T14 schools (specifically Columbia, NYU, and Penn) look at this? I tried to use the search feature (Google-powered) but it doesn't wotk very well. Thanks all!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Fordham?

well I'm currently a junior at Cornell University in the ILR School (Industrial and Labor Relations). Unfortunately I only have a 3.4GPA. It looks like I will have to do really well on my LSATS to get into a T14, probably above a 170. What are the chances of a black URM with a 3.4GPA and 165+ LSAT with a TON of leadership extracurriculars getting into a T14 and Fordham? Thanks.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Fordham?

Can someone give me some info on Fordham? I know its #25 on the US News Ranking list. How good is their reputation for placing in private firms in NYC? Chances of making 120K+ after graduation in NYC after graduating from Fordham? Also, Will being a black URM increase my chances at Fordham? Thanks.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Indian = URM?

I am a black URM at Cornell University. One of best friends here is an Indian female (from India, not Native American). Would she be considered a URM by the T14 schools? Thanks.
