General Board / Good GPA, Decent LSAT
« on: July 12, 2004, 10:30:16 AM »
I noticed another post on this board concerning the opposite situation I'm in. I have a 3.92 UGPA, 4.0 in major. I took my LSAT in June and performed poorly compared to my timed practice tests I took through Kaplan (averaged 158) on the actual test I recieved a 153 (ouch). I have what I would consider outstanding letters of recommendation from my undergraduate professors. I am looking at the following schools for admission:

Stretches: University of Texas

First Choices: Southern Methodist University, and Baylor University

Safeties: Texas Tech, St. Mary's, Texas Wesylan, South Texas, and Texas Southern

Yes, I am applying to all schools in TX.

I guess my question to everyone is, are my first choices realistic for the scores I have? I do not want to take the LSAT again in October unless need be. I realize my chances of getting into UT are slim to none. But I would really hope I have a fighting chance of getting into SMU and Baylor. Anyone have any advice?? Thanks in Advance!

In my opinion, if you enter law school to go specially into business law, but mainly because you like business, you'll be sorely dissapointed.

I just had to point out that my Civil Procedure prof, Dennis Olson, who will teach Section 4, created a facebook profile.  Isn't that hilarious?  Bet they don't do that at Harvard!  I added him as a friend; perhaps it will help. 



Kiss Ass! HAHHAHA, I wish Krahmer had one!

I had a blast meeting y'all, but the cowboys putting up a Big "W" would have made the night complete, oh well I guess its only preseason!

Now its time to enjoy my Sunday before this next week of madness starts!

Just had a one guy from Italy Calazone for lunch and now I'm in heaven! I thought it was supposed to storm today? I'm liking this weather a TON!

BTW, I think soon after 28 weeks at the top of the 1L board with the Texas Tech Fall '05 post we should disband our discussion and move it to the students board under the Texas Tech specific board, which would allow us to do two things, first we could segment our discussion topics into different threads and also we would be accessible in one place to answer questions for any new 0L's looking at Tech for law school.

BTW, Anyone thinking of joining Phi Alpha Delta with me? I spent three years at my undergrad trying to start up a business fraternity, but our campus prohibited greek orgs on campus. I would really like to join the PAD legal fraternity at Tech and I wondered if anyone else was with me. I guess they do a lot of meaningful things and I've heard that its a good way to get advice from upper level students as well, i.e. outline sharing etc.

Chimmy's is right next to the Cold Stone Cremery, near the Varsity bookstore. It's downtown on Broadway and University. I don't know how much clearer I can be.  My number is 724.466.6660 in case anyone get's lost.  God help your soul if you do.  How bout 7pm?   

Aron, were you attempting to say I look like Farris Bueller?  >:(

As far as you "UTSassy," Kyle said to ask if you're hot...I mean, and, what is your name? Chimmy's can be a bar, or a restaurant, or whatever you want it to be, baby. I hear they have good maragaritas. 

Oh by the way, I'm drunk.  So if anyone is offended by my comments, oh well. 

 

HAHAHA! This quote is priceless, sounds like me a couple nights ago after a few rounds at the pourhouse!

Lubbock isn't bad at all! 90% of the wireless networks I've ever been on suck, so don't get too worried about that, they really would rather you use the outlets on every table instead!

I'm both nervous and excited to get started, right now I have no clue what the schedule is like for orientation or what to expect from that week.
