Where else should I apply?
« on: January 11, 2008, 10:23:53 PM »
I am fielding suggestions for another school I should apply to. I have 9 apps out now and I would like to add another. I am thinking of Tennessee but I would like to add another reach/target. I have a 160 and a 4.0. Schools that are known to value GPA highly would be great.

My reasoning it that I will probably retake the LSAT in June and wait a year if I do not get into one of my top choices.

My current list:

Cal-Berkeley
Boston College
Iowa
Wisconsin
William & Mary
North Carolina
Georgia
Florida
Ohio State

Would I have a shot at Bama? I know they love in state.

Region is not important.

Bama loves in-state people? I was under the impression that this wasnt a very big factor to them. I hope you are right though.

This is what their website says in the FAQ section:

Is Alabama residency considered in admissions and may I change my residency status after my first year of law school?

As the State's only public law school, Alabama residency is one of many factors in admissions. Thus, it is useful for nonresidents in particular to describe their ties to the State and/or their interest in the University of Alabama School of Law.


I have no ties to alabama.

Instead of contriving ties, you should talk about your emotional connection to a few of their programs. 

So, do you think I should apply?
