take the test in october and apply then. You are really selling yourself short by applying this late in the process.
My major is communications. Its pretty much a bull major.
I just wanted to hurry up and try to get into law school, but I guess I should wait another year and raise my gpa.
I'm gonna study like crazy for the June lsat. Hopefully I can pull off a good score so I can go to law school next year. Wish me luck.
I haven't graduated yet. I just looked over my transcript and I retook 4 classes. all of which i got an f in. I only have 90 units. So do you think I should not apply at all this upcoming year or do you think i should apply and then reapply next year if i don't get into the schools i want.
HI guys, I just found out that law schools count ure F's and D's when ure school replaces them. I think that would probably lower my GPA from a 2.8 to about a 2.3 or possibly even lower. (I messed up really bad first two years college, but improved next two years)
DO you guys think it is impossible for me to get into Loyola Law school or University of San Diego or Pepperdine? I still haven't taken the lsat but am planning on taking it this june. My goal is to get a 165 or better. So say if i got a 168 do you guys think its still hopeless?
i am going to loyola this fall, and i was given a scholarship that had a minimum gpa that needed to be maintained. i asked the dean about this minimum and he said of the 15 or so students that are given this scholarship every year he could only think of one person in last couple of years that did not end up renewing the scholarship for thier tenure at loyola.
he also said that about 80% of the students given the scholarship ended up on law review and/or moot court...
of course every school is different, as our the requirements to maintain a scholarship...
As a current 1L, my advice to you would be this: make a bunch of money this summer to cut down on your loans. That's what I did, and I was very pleased. No trouble getting a summer law job for the summer after 1L without any legal experience to speak of.
You seem pretty certain that you/me are in. How can you be so certain?
Just curious as to where u got this information...or are u merely making an assumption based on lawschoolnumbers.com stats.
