Law School Admissions / Re: What are my Chances: CA&Chicago Schools
« on: March 10, 2004, 03:53:41 PM »
I'd say your odds at San Diego, Loyola, Kent, and Depaul are below 5%.  I don't know anything about the others, but I wouldn't get my hopes up too high.  All tghe experience/LOR's/EC's in the world don't mean a thing.  Law school admissions comes down to one thing:  numbers.  If your numbers are competitive, but not amazing, the other stuff can help a good deal, but your numbers have to be competitive for that stuff to even come into play.

Stay on with ESPN.  That sounds like a good gig.

I don't know anything about Hastings, except that it is farily well thought-of.  It is certainly a regional school, whereas Wash U is somewhat national.  I am not a proponent of always going to the higher ranked school.  Letting some jackass magazine editor tell you where to go to school is moronic.  However, a top 25 school is clearly going to be better than a school ranked in the 70's.

I would definitely say that go where you think you will be happiest.  If you know you want to be in LA, I am sure Loyola would be fine, but your margin of error would be very low.  That is, your grades would have to be excellent to give you a lot of opportunities.  But Wash U. is certainly fine enough to warrant a visit to give it a close inspection.  In the end though, go where you will be happy.

-----If you were to ask even my university professors, they would have to think a little first before acknowledging that they know that Washington University even exist, at best they would confuse it with University of Washington.-----

I have serious doubts that your professros would not know of Wash U.  It is easily a top tier undergrad and one of the finest non-Ivies in the country.  If your profs don't know of Wash U, then you did not go to a university that was worth a *&^%.

To the original poster--Wash U is a top law school.  If you do well there, you will be able to practice law wherever you want, including LA.  It is CLEARLY superior to Loyola.

Any test prior to about '98 or '99 is not going to help you a whole lot.

You will get into all of those schools with money at most if not all of them.  You need to add some first tier schools to your list.  Your numbers are pretty good.

f-in Pitt.  They cashed my check like 3 weeks ago and still have not requested my LSDAS report.  And I have not gotten anything saying my app was incomplete.

Dinged at UNC--3.36/165, out of state.  Not a big surprise, but its my first decision, so a little disappointing.
