I'd love to join this LGBT club. It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right? I'll show up with an armful of toys.
Thanks so much for all the advice! I'll definitely take a closer look at the UC schools (and Notre Dame). I am looking to stay in the Pacific Northwest, but with all the advice to "spread the net wide" it seems like a bad idea to limit myself to an area that has so few schools, and I didn't know where to start looking outside of the region.@casper13There isn't anything wrong with U of O. I can tell you from personal experience that the facilities are good, the campus beautiful, and the town interesting. On the other hand, UO also has a lot of distractions for me (memories, favorite haunts, etc.) that I would rather avoid. Also, as other posters pointed out, my numbers are a little high for UO, it would be a safety. Finally, from talking to people in Portland, Lewis and Clark seems to be a little more prestigious locally; although U of O probably would do better nationally.I totally understand the wanting to get away because of distractions. I am in the same boat with USd here being that I live in San Diego and am native here I dont know if I could keep from being distracted if i went there for LS.
your chances are good almost everywhere, and you have a decent shot at most of the t 14, I think, outside of the top 3.. here are people with your numbers from this year's class:http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/search_schools.php?action=search&school_code=4833&lsat1=172&lsat2=174&fee_waiver=0&status=0&gpa_lsdas1=3.70&gpa_lsdas2=3.80&attending=0&cycle=5&gpa_degree1=&gpa_degree2=&withdrawn=0&program=1&index1=&index2=&state=0&application_type=0&scholarship1=&scholarship2=&sex=0&multiple_lsat=0&urm=0&x=6&y=2&international=0congrats on the score, looks like that jump could be a life changing one
