It's legit...one of my friends works for LSAC and sent it to us.
You can't infer a faulty correlation from a single data point.
Also, your LSAT score likely placed you at a school where students have similar scores. Thus, the correlation between scores and grades will be lower than if you were competing with a random sample of students from all law schools.
Things are looking pretty grim. I'm a P/T evening student who earned a D in Torts. Oh, by the way, I go to a tier 4 school.
The worst part is, I know the material. I just lost track of time on the three hour test, which determined the entire course grade.
I had thought of a summer abroad program. That's out. Transferring to a better school. That's out.
Working in a relatively large firm right after graduation. OUT.
So, here I sit, debts growing, wondering if I'll lose out on future exams b/c of bad timing....
My other courses last the full year, so I have no definite grades in them, but my grades on those mid-terms were just above (Contracts) and just below (Civ. Pro) the class average.
This is a bump in the road, I guess, but I'm really stuck weighing the consequences of it all.
I'd love to hear from any others who've dug out of this kind of jam, or just have some thoughtful feedback.
Isn't it the case that some T4s have particularly bad reputation, such as Cooley or New England.
Hi everyone - I guess the is the start of your rags to riches story - law school edition.
LSAT was a nightmare for me - took it twice - got a 147 first time around, scored a 149 second time around. Someone must have been smiling on me one day, becuase I was accepted to a T4 in Massachusetts last fall.
I'm currently enrolled in the PT program, and mid-term grades have been released. I scored a 90 in CivPro, 92 in Contracts, 93 in LRW and 94 in Torts. I would have chalked it up to luck if it weren't for the consistency in my grades.
Here is my question - assuming I can keep up my level of performance, what do people think my chances are in transferring to UCONN Law (#50 ranking) next fall?
Thanks for a view from the other side of the argument. This option IS available to me next semester if I choose to remain here. My grades are fine ( I DID book legal writing, so...), I'm in the top 10%, looking to reach up, not a lateral transfer. Though I haven't spoken about this to a transfer advisor, everyone seems to take law review as a big accomplishment. But, the time factor is clearly what is being weighed here-
We just got all of our grades and my cumulative for this semester was a 3.1 on a 2.8 curve. I did really well in 3 classes and not so well in 2 others which brought down my GPA. If I bring my grades up next semester, what are my chances of transferring to a tier 2? Any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
