Studying for the LSAT / Re: So-so school

If you grad'd with an online degree University of Houston would ask that you explain 'why' to them. Thats not exactly 'looking down' but it makes it suspect. Check out the 'ask shasta' thing on UH's website... and if UH wants to know 'why' higher up schools will probably be curious too...

mostly speculation... on the other hand if you make a 175 LSAT no one would probably care :P

STCL has a decent rep i think.

The attorneys I know would put it on par with Tech. The earnings are about the same for Baylor, Tech, STCL. With employment percentage slightly lower for STCL than the other two.

However the only downside (I think) to STCL is the price. They are quite expensive. If you can deal with the money then for go for it, but then you've pretty much got to do private practice to pay off loans etc. and then place pretty well in the class-- like with any law school that isnt in the top 'tier'.

Go for it if you're up for it. ;) Good luck in any case. I think I'm picking Tech. Middle of nowhere but cheap.

I heard it was on the low side of the 4T in placement and earnings.

No offense there-- I'll soon be at a 4T.

Also, on a side note depending on which law schools you apply to the Online degree thing can put you at a severe disadvantage. Some schools require you to explain why and such.

Good luck!

You know I have to admit something. When I read your post I was thinking, thats totally off, those numbers aren't close. I went at looked that package i got from UH and damn, you're right.

Med LSAT = 160
Med GPA  = 3.57

This whole time I've been referring to the 2002 cycle info I got from LSAC

75/25 LSAT = 160/154
75/25 UGPA = 3.29/3.74

Under 2002 numbers I compared my index numbers and was above their median by a point so was confident. But with those numbers I am a weak candidate, thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Just in case I didn't mention before, my numbers are 164/2.95 UT-Austin grad, double major, WE throughout college.

yeah, in at Tech, both early decisions also answered-- deferred at SMU, out at UH (surprising)

I just wanted to echo the post before me. Take me for example, my numbers are 2.95/164. Good LSAT crummy GPA. It tells me I have a 75%+ chance at Tulane, Baylor, WUSTL, and tons of others like that. In reality my odds are much lower. It said I have a 90%+ chance at U. Houston -- dinged super early-- not exactly 90% chance. When I look at their grid-- people with my range of numbers have a 50% chance. I just thing they're methodolgy is bad. Maybe to compare me they ONLY use people with a 2.95 (not a 2.75-2.99 like they should) so the pool they compare me to is very small. -- Whatever their ways of getting the numbers, it sucks.

PS I do not have a 40-60% at BU, WM, WL  :P
