Neither of these schools has a national reputation.

Sit out a year, retake the LSAT, and reapply.

Wait List / Re: Chances of getting off GULC PWL?

I sent them an email... do they want anything else?  All they mentioned in the letter was to keep them abreast of dates and deadlines (whatever that means).

Apparently I am on the "preferred" preferred waitlist.

I wonder how much that increases my chances...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: guess my lsat score...

It's very possible this post is an "offer" and a resulting guess an "acceptance".  j/k... but it might be! 

Naw, no consideration for the OP.

I go to UIUC for undergrad.

Yes, Urbana is basically a college town in the middle of corn fields but it really isn't as bad as some make it sound.  There are plenty of bars, night-life is good, etc.  There just aren't a whole lot of big-city amenities.  I also hear the professors at UIUC law are really open and helpful.

But if I were you, I would do a little more studying about the legal markets in Chicago and Dallas, since that's really what your decision should hinge on.

Law School Applications / Re: 3.4/172 or 3.8/168

I quick look at chiashu shows that the 3.4/172 has a slight advantage, except at the very top schools.

Affirmative Action / Re: Diversity
« on: June 30, 2005, 05:42:51 PM »

I think you are contradicting yourself. You connect racial preference to diversity-- which indicates to me that SCOTUS defines diversity on the basis of race---and then you state that the historical racism  of this country and one's socioeconomic stance has no influence on SCOTUS endorsing the AA policy.


Well, not exactly.  Historical racism can be the cause of a lack of diversity while not being the justification for AA.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Give Up on My Dream?
« on: June 30, 2005, 05:46:48 AM »
Hey guys, I have a problem.  I took the October 2004 lsat and got a 140. I attempted to take the December 2004 lsat and ended up canceling.  Then I took a powerscore course and took the June 2005 Lsat and only got a 142.  I don't know what else to do.  I want to take the test again, but my limit is up.  Unless I get permission from a dean of a law school to take the test again, I'll have to wait till october 2006 to take it again.  Should I give up my dream of going to law school because of this test or should I wait it out and retake it again in the future?  I am currently a grad student, so I have that going for me.

Thanks

I hate it when other people tell me this but I would recommending you of being satisfied with your score.  Your consecutive scoring of 140 and 142 are an indicator that you did not improve at all.  I dunno if you are plain stupid or just lack motivation, but 140 and 142 sound like low scores. 

If you have grad school, then why you thinking about lawschool???  Finish your stuff first.  But, you should give up because you seem like one of those people that do not improve.  You have nothing to say.  If you have gotten at least 150 on the second test then I would advise you to take it again.  However 142 after 140 sounds pathetic. 

This sounds like you typed up what you had to say, ran it through a really bad English-to-German translator, then ran it back through an equally bad German-to-English translator.

If this is a Julie Fern impersonation, you're way out of your league.
