I had 5, Im in.

I had a 20 credit 2.1 Freshmen year. My drinking stats were awesome though.

I turned it around significantly, graduated in four and did ok for myself. Im at a good T3, but at least it worked out for me.

Yeah, My drinking stats were pretty good too - so good my CUM GPA is a 2.95 where as my degree GPA, (103 credits) is a 3.71. What schools did you apply to what were the results.

I did everything ass backwards so Im not sure I am a good case study. I was planning on working for a year and studying hard for the lsat, but then job stuff fell through in May and I decided to take the June LSAT and apply wherever I could that late. At that point I thought I may be able to get into Toledo, which is where I ended up going. Since my score wasnt out until like nearly July, I didnt get accepted until August. I was happy to say the least. Tier 3, but was Tier 2 last year. This year I saw their mailing sheet and they claim median LSAT of 159. Hopefully that is enough to get it back into tier 2. I also got into Detroit Mercy, but Toledo is far better. It was a no brainer for me.

I'm an undergrad here at Michigan.

I've visited most of the top 15 law schools, and Michigan far and away had the best law campus.  Gorgeous, functional, technologically up-to-date.  Interdisciplinary options are also excellent (on par with Penn), with access to Top 10 medical school, business school, public policy school, school of information, engineering school, and school of education (wow, didn't know Michigan had so many top 10 grad schools until I looked).

Winters: it gets cold, but not unlivable-- Chicago's a bit colder, for reference.  As for social life, I really like the overall environment on campus...  everything's open quite late, and there are always parties going on; but the university as a whole really prides itself on working students hard-- so everyone seems to strike a fair balance.

It's tough to take on an outsider's perspective of Michigan (as I once had, being an out-of-stater), but I guess what's most important to know is that there's a lot of *everything* here.  The energy is quite infectious, and boredom is pretty much non-existent, and otherwise self-inflicted.

I also agree. I bleed Maize and Blue. Now if only I can transfer in there.

This is what I was hinting at earlier. Take a look at this guy:

I'm sorry; a "Soc Sci" major at Kansas State with a 1.97 UGPA (!!!) should not be getting admitted into schools like WUSTL or UIUC over "Peace Corps, Ph.d, and work experience" types, just because he scored a 170 on the LSAT. Period.

@#!* him, he will fail out.

I lived large in fiji and australia last summer for 35 days and dropped about 5 grand. I could have easily done it with 3500 and the tickets were about 2000.

Hey do any of you know anything about the Transitional Program? I got this letter today saying that I was "voted into it." Therefore I can only take 9 credits first semester. 2nd semester I can go full time. I guess my undergrad record was a little too shaky for them and they want to play it safe although with only 9 credits I think I won't be challenged enough. My freshmen and sophomore years were disasters. I had like a 2.3 with like 52 credits. However, I graduated in 4 still and had well over a 3 point after that. I wrote them explaining my issues at the start of college.

Im wondering how they rank me against the rest of the class, whether I can still try out for law review, whether taking classes that first summer in order to graduate in 3 will kill chances at valuable summer work experience, if so and id be better off working will it be hard to get a job having missed Propoerty 2 and Torts or whatever the hell it is that I don't take.
