I thought there are tons of law school students here.

Any surprises?  Any expected A turn into a C or vice versa?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 151 LSAT any legit shot at top 100

University of Arkansas is not as easy to get into as prior years.  According to someone I know, their current minimum index number is 200 for instate and 205 for out state. The calculation for the index number is LSAT + (13.4 X GPA).  They will take few who don't meet the requirement such as URM (Blacks, Hispancis, and Native Americans).  Otherwise, with a 3.3, you need 156 LSAT, unless you have something extra such as "special" work experience, life experience, etc.

You are probably right that they might crack top 100 again...I heard that their new building is almost complete.  Plus, their tuition is one of the lowest in the country.

I say your best chance for a school that is around the top 100 is Arkansas-Fayetteville.  I know they were not ranked in the top 100 this year, but they were in the top 100 the previous two years (this may be beneficial to you because less people may apply here since they missed the top 100 this year, but I bet they will be back in the top 100 next year...I am saying this and am not a student at Arkansas).  Arkansas takes students with a little lower LSAT.  Actually, I know someone that made their cut a couple years ago with a 147 LSAT (however, he had extremely high grades), but I think they may have raised it to around 150 now.  Just a thought, good luck.  You can always go to a Tier 3 or 4 school your first year and then transfer to a top 100 law school.  If you are in the top 20 percent at a law school it is not hard to transfer to a top 100 law school (especially Tier 2).  I have several friends that transferred from lower law schools to top law schools, it is easier than many people claim.

One of the BEST reasons not wanting to attend a Tier 4 law school or about 30-50% of the Tier 3 law schools is they weed out people, sometimes as high as 50% of its students (Cooley) and 10-15% is not uncommon. 

You don't want to give up your current job (or job search), spent a year of your life and be in debt and walk away with nothing.  By attending a Tier 4 law school or 30-50% of the Tier 3 law schools, you risk of being one of those 10-15% of weed-out students.

You should apply to Case Western, University of Arkansas, and Baylor, they are all free application if you do it right.

I have a feeling that one day Florida Coastal will be a close out item....

You know what is currently a close out item, the school that you chose to attend.

I am sorry if you are not smart to figure out the "R" word, Mr. FSU 1L Second Class Citizen.

You assume ALOT!!!  You are assuming that I was asking that question for myself. 

No, I don't got to Florida Coastal nor Stetson, I go to a higher ranked school than those. 

Good luck being second class citizen (I am being nice and not using the "R" word) at FSU.

Well yeah actually I am.

Some people just get lucky because of Hurricanes.

And where do you go to school at? Somewhere equivalent to Stetson right? And where would that be?

Florida Coastal?
