A bunch that are way out of my reach, heh. I have a 3.82 GPA from UMN, but I got a 2 year degree while still in high school with a GPA of 3.58, so I believe I got averaged out by LSAC around 3.73. With a 156 LSAT score (which is pretty good, considering I scored in the 19th percentile on the psych GRE, and I was amply prepared for that godforsaken test), I really shouldn't be looking at these schools, but I have to dream, right?
Reaches: Georgetown (I'd love to do their JD/MA in Arabic studies program), Boston U (they have study abroad options to Israel for Hebrew speakers), UC Berkeley (I heard they look for more than LSAT scores), Cardoza (same thing with the Israel abroad programs + a Holocaust restitution/claims clinic), Cornell (emphasis on International law).
Targets: Santa Clara (international focus), U of San Francisco (ditto), U of San Diego (ditto), Catholic U (they have an MA in Semitic languages that I think I could convince the dean to let me do as a joint degree), Northeastern (possibility of internships abroad).
Safeties: University of the Pacific (international focus), Hamline (Jerusalem program during january term + place to fall back on if I chicken out about leaving MN), Touro (bunch of Israeli internship options), and Suffolk (internship options with Egypt, Jordan, and Kuwait).
So, yes. I have way too many schools, but I want to be safe. My LSAT score does not make this an easy process, unfortunately.
Where in Michigan are you from? My grandparents live in Maranesco (sp?) on Lake Gogebic. They used to live in Ironwood up in the good ol' U.P. At least you're prepared for the crappy winters. This will be my first year living off campus (in NorthEast) and taking a bus into campus; I have a feeling I'm going to freeze to death on the way in.
Ack. Sorry for the length. My procrastination when it comes to doing my philosophy paper and grading students' papers knows no bounds.
