I'm looking to start applying to law schools in october (that is unless I do horribly on the June LSAT and need to retake it). Right now it looks like my GPA upon application will be around 3.05-3.1. I took a couple practice LSATs without preparation and got a 157 and a 162 so hopefully with some work I can get my score up to the mid 160s when I take it for real. I planned on applying to South Texas College of Law, University of Houston, and University of Texas. Realistically with those kinds of scores and the fact that I'm a middle class white boy, I have very little chance of getting into UT. I think however, that I'll definitely be able to get into STCL, and possibly UH which would be great as those are both very nice schools except for one thing. I don't want to live in Houston after I graduate. As far as cities in Texas go I would much rather live in Austin, but I'm afraid that I wouldn't be able to find work there with a degree from a Houston (or anywhere else for that matter) school. Is this the case, and should I look at some other schools? Thanks for any feedback.
