That sounds about right.  But the OP should still apply to all of them.

Hello Everyone. I posted something similar on TLS and got some great support, but just wanted some more opinions.
Took the LSAT, messed up an LG and got a 165. I am planning on retaking.
My dream school is GULC and I wanted to know what LSAT I'd need to be admitted RD, and what LSAT would most likely get me a comfortable amount of money.
I'll have a 3.5x when I apply in Fall, but transcript isn't the greatest. Only soft really is working full time to pay for school. I'm AA female.
Thanks for any replies.

You should be fine for GULC.  In fact, I think you have a shot at all of the t14 except maybe Yale.  Apply to all of them.  You'll probably get into CCN down.  Maybe H.

UGPA (3.16, Stanford and the University of Miami), 160 LSAT. AA male over 40 years of age  with 15+ years of investment experience(UCLA MBA).
 Prospects for Howard acceptance with full tuition scholarship?
Thanks

I'd say pretty good, but I don't know very much about Howard admissions. (actually, I'm not sure that they even give scholarships...but if they do, you'd probably be positioned well for it)

I go to a tier 4 school I can talk about it personally I know more than one person.

Ah I see.  Then yes, stay optimistic.  I wish you the best.

Indeed.  I know this girl who just graduated from a T4 with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.  According to her facebook status updates, she's just praying for a waitressing job at this point.  And if/when she does get a legal job, it certainly won't be paying $100k+.  But, she's a lawyer!

Sadly, I also know several recent grads of top state/regional schools, and a even a few t14 grads, who are similarly resigning themselves to whatever non-legal job they can find.  But ex ante, the potential reward still might equal or outweigh the risk of unemployment at those schools.

but people on the internet will just say don't go to law school unless you go into T/14, but that is bull****.

That's not what I said.  I said:

And if you don't go to a t14 or a top state/regional school in the region where you want to practice, make sure you're not paying anyone to go where you ultimately attend.

I agree that not everyone has to go to a t14.  But if you don't go to one, then the risk of assuming tens of thousands of dollars of debt is worth it only if you go to a top state/regional school in the region where you want to practice.  In this economy, I advise no one to take on significant debt to go to law school outside of those parameters.

The rankings etc don't matter that much if you are a good lawyer people will figure it out no matter what school you go to.

Um, do you not read Above the Law?  This kind of thinking is why so many lawyers end up unemployed and in thousands of dollars of debt. 

Bafanahoy, you're probably not getting into GULC with those numbers.  But if your score is at the upper end of where you were testing, then I'm not sure it's worth retaking unless you can take a course or something to raise your proficiency.  And if you don't go to a t14 or a top state/regional school in the region where you want to practice, make sure you're not paying anyone to go where you ultimately attend.

Logical reasoning not your strong suit, eh? ;).  But yes, for 4 years or so, I posted quite often.

with over 15,000 posts I'd say its a bit more than "time to time"  ::)

Lol.  For some reason, I still check in from time to time.
