I think I could get a sizeable scholarship at some schools ranked around 40-60, but I have a decent chance of admission at schools in the 20-range. So, for example, I could go into debt at Minnesota or I could not go into debt at Loyola (CA). I don't plan to go into big law. I'm interested in human rights, civil liberties, immigration and labor. What do I need to know to make a good decision on this?

GPA 361
LSAT 164

Where should I go next fall? / Re: school for 165 LSAT?

I got a 164. My GPA is lower than yours by .2+, but here are the schools I've narrowed it down to. I'm applying to a lot of them because I'm poor enough to get fee waivers and I think it's worth the work to fill out the extra apps. I think that last poster was right about being stuck in the middle. Do I want to apply to a third tier school so I can have surer safeties? No.

Boston U
Cornell
G Wash
Georgetown
U Texas
Hastings
USC
UC Davis
UCLA
U Georgia
U Illinois
U Iowa
U Minnesota
U North Caroina
U Virginia
U Wisconsin

Recommendations / Re: Advisability of non-academic recommendations?
« on: November 08, 2004, 01:05:20 PM »
Thanks. Montauk is actually the only book I have about getting into law school. I had assumed that those people would have been good recommenders, but then a pre-law adviser was telling me that one professor I wanted to use wasn't good enough because she was not a full professor (even though she's the director of student media).

Recommendations / Advisability of non-academic recommendations?
« on: November 05, 2004, 08:35:44 PM »
I am considering asking the director of the ACLU in Arizona (knows about how I restarted the ACLU chapter at my school) and my academic adviser (knows better than anyone about my particular struggles and how I overcame them) to write recommendations for me. I'm sure they would both be glowing and they know me well. Of course I would include at least one recommendation from a professor for each application.

Can you please comment on the advisability of including the ACLU director's and my adviser's recommendations? Thanks!

Law School Applications / UCLA public interest - Can I get in?
« on: November 03, 2004, 06:05:53 PM »
I want to go into public interest law (I'm the president of the ACLU at my UG). My GPA is 3.61 but LSAC may reduce it a little bit. My LSAT is 164. I have lived in several foreign countries and speak Spanish fluently. I imagine UCLA is a longshot. Please comment, and suggest other law schools. Thanks!
