Choosing the Right Law School / Re: admission question
« on: October 28, 2004, 09:22:19 AM »
No need to scream bloody murder here.  I am fully aware that there are small tier three schools that force kids to work hard.  I am also aware that there are large state schools that let kids coast.  No general assumption here, merely a question.   It just so happens that I know alot of people at other schools with 3.8's that do nothing and would not be considered highly intelligent people, not saying that is the case every where.  And as far as prestigious colleges inflating grades, UofC is particularly known for its lack of inflation among the top tier schools.

My question is, I graduated from the University of Chicago with a 3.55, and I was wondering how much graduating from a prestigious undergraduate college helps your chances for getting into law school.  Considering that an applicant from another college might have a 3.8 whereas my 3.55 was probably harder to obtain.  Any idea of how much, if any, this aspect of undergraduate work is taken into consideration?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: tough reading comp on 10/2 LSAT
« on: October 07, 2004, 09:19:57 AM »
i had a really hard time with the scientific reading comp passage, about nerve cells or whatever, other than that, i thought it was about average, but that section wasnt pleasant, and i really hated the 8th,9th,10th century logic game.  i usually get about a 20-21 on the logic section, but that one really messed me up. 

Studying for the LSAT / clarity needed!
« on: October 07, 2004, 08:55:26 AM »
ok, so i graduated from the university of chicago with a 3.4 and i got a 158 on my Lsat.  and ill have a strong application with good recs and i participated in wrestling in college.   

the schools i am thinking about applying to are iowa, u of I, northcarolina, georgia, and alabama, and possibly vanderbilt. 

I was, however, on my practice tests scoring 160-167, averaging around 164.    Should i retake the test?  what chances realistically do i have of getting into those schools with my current stats? 
any help on one or more of the schools listed above would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
