Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Low GPA, High LSAT
« on: July 26, 2008, 05:06:48 PM »
Thank you for the boost in confidence!  I'm just worried the numbers may not play out as well for me as they show, since I'm such a big splitter. 

I do have dreams of U of Texas, even though I know it's basically impossible.  For what it's worth, my undergrad is from U of Texas.

I got into quite a few schools I was 25% on the LSAC Calculator. If you REALLY want to go to UT, I would retake and shoot for 165. It is very reasonable to jump five points. 165 and you should be in at Texas.

I am planning to transfer no matter what but how does St. Thomas fall in comparison to FIU, Nova, UM and the Miami market? 

Don't count on a transfer. Everyone expects to be at the top of their class, only 10% actually are.

How's your standing at your current school?

Is this a serious question? He is transferring from T4 to Seton Hall, how do you think his standing is?  ::)


I don't know, how picky is Seton Hall? If he's top 30% at his current school, great, go to Seton Hall. If he's top 2% at almost anywhere, stay there.

True, I see your point. We aren't exactly talking about HYS here.

Definitely HYS.

Go to UT, put your family out of your mind and worry about them when you are making six figures.

emails from law schools mean nothing. Many of those schools are just trying to boost their application numbers. I think Minnesota sent everyone signed up with LSAC emails last year.

I wouldn't transfer from a T2 if you are at the top of your class and have made law review. Why wouldn't I? Because you already opened the doors to any job you want. T4, I would definitely transfer up. Check out law firms, look at their attorney profiles, look at the representation from your current school and then look at Seton Hall. Then decide.

he doesn't have a shot at any of those schools because he can't figure out how to use the internet for himself.

A little bitter over not being offered a scholarship by Cooley?

nah, pleased as all hell as long as your mom's giving me a full ride.

Troll. Are you what happens when someone's IP gets banned at TLS?

Law School Admissions / General Question On HYS or T14
« on: July 14, 2008, 03:13:23 PM »
I have a buddy who is going to apply to law school next fall. He has a 3.9+ UGPA, URM, strong soft factors and one of the smart guys I know. I have helped him prep for the LSAT, and on the practice tests he flies through each section with very good accuracy. He is scoring 170-175 on the practice tests, when they are timed, in a live environment like a library. I don't see any reason he will not be able to score a 165-170 on an actual test, especially with another couple months to prep.

Anyway, he is not taking the test until October 4. 3.9 UGPA, URM, 170, he will be shooting for HYS. Is there enough time to get the results from the October 4 LSAT and put in decent applications, early enough in the cycle, to stand a legitimate shot at HYS?
