Ivy_Hopeful:

I think you need to get over yourself.  After all, most people don't come to this site just to listen to your ingenious advice.  ::)  I do hope you are not so arrogant in real life; otherwise you'll get a well-deserved swift kick in the ass. 

I really do pity everyone who must endure your not-so-humble attitude.

Not to be too logical, but aren't you just an unreliable internet source too?

Yes, of course.  I am trying to get that point across:  listen to me or don't, but don't just listen to one person; much less a person like myself, a person you do not know.  I was not trying to argue, I was trying to let everyone be aware that Ivy_Hopeful had some false information.  He said:

UGPA = All Grades from degree granting institution (not counting other institutions)

Actually, an UGPA = GPA from courses applied to UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE(s).  I know this because I know a few members of different law school admissions committees, and have been asking for their advice concerning admissions.  I was only trying to help those who might read this discussion.

I don't know much about colleges in the NE, but I believe that you should see what journals/clubs that a certain college has to determine if it is liberal enough for you.

The only example I can offer is:

I want to study animal right's and domestic violence in law school, so I like Boalt Hall because that school has journals and clubs focusing on both topics.

I suggest you do the same:  see what extras a school has that interest you.

Response to Ivy_Hopeful's last posting for this topic:  Law schools do not care whether a person got a low/bad grade at a different school than where he/she earned his/hers Bachelor's degree.   As far as a personís UGPA is concerned, law schools care about what grades a person made in his/her major(s) and the overall UGPA.

TO EVERYONE:  I recommend befriending members of the admissions committee of your top choice school(s) to learn what matters for admission in that specific school(s) and, then, following up on that knowledge by reading some books on law school admissions.  Do not rely on one person's advice.  Listen to Ivy_Hopeful if you want, but make sure to hear what other people (not just unreliable internet Ďadvisorsí) have to say.

UGPA = GPA from courses applied to UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE(s).

YOU MUST NOT OMIT THAT INFORMATION!!!   :o

YOU SHOULD STILL HAVE A FAIR CHANCE AT BEING ACCEPTED, BUT IF YOU DO NOT MAKE NOTICE OF THE INCIDENT, YOU WILL NEVER BE ADMITTED BECAUSE YOU WILL BE SEEN AS DECEITFUL BY THE  LAW SCHOOL(S) AT WHICH YOU APPLY.

I think you'll get into South Texas College of Law, (that's the only school on you list I know much about) because STCL accepts almost everyone with your stats.  However, I do not know why you would want to attend that law school.  University of Houston is cheaper and considered to be better than South Texas.

This topic is kind of meaningless.  Any person who has done any research regarding law school admissions knows that a certain UGPA and LSAT score(s) DOES NOT have complete weight in deciding whether or not a person is admitted.  A person's personal statement/essay(s), letter(s) of recommendation, work and/or volunteer experience, and special circumstances can help determine whether the person would be of an worth to a certain school.  I wish good numbers were all that mattered, because my UGPA and LSAT score are excellent, but, sadly, that is not all that matters.  I hope that ya'll all got accepted into the schools of ya'lls choices.

Wait List / Re: Fordham Waitlist

I'll be applying to Fordham in a couple of years.  Do you like NYC? 

QUESTION FOR EVERYONE:  What do ya'll think of NYC/Fordham?  Is that a good 'national' school? 

I don't plan to work in New York, but might want to go to NYU or Fordham.
