Hi guys. Ok, so I took the lsat in Dec and just received my score of 168. I have a gpa of 3.89. I don't have any significant work experience, a legal internship and campus jobs, but nothing too impressive. I've got a lot of community service and campus involvement and fairly good lors. So, I'm trying to figure out where to apply. I was really hoping for a bit higher lsat, but think I should be ok still. My top choices are probably UT, Duke, and Georgetown. However, i'm not sure if my list is realistic enough. Here it is:University of VirginiaDukeUniversity of Ca- BerkeleyGeorgetownUTVanderbuiltUniversity of S. CAGeorge Washington Univerand probably a couple other safetiesConsidering that my apps won't be sent for about another week, that will probably work against me a bit. Could anyone offer an opinion?
Hey guys. Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate your advice. Maybe I'll go ahead and add another higher ranked school. I'm really looking for a bit warmer weather, so think UT might actually be the best location. I am a Kansas resident, so will have out of state tuition wherever I go.... Lots of loans to pay back:) Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
Katie: Check out www.chiashu.com (hit the law school link on the top left hand side of the page). You may have already seen this - it seems like a good place to get an idea about schools that seem like plausible possibilities - and your top three all appear within reach ... good luck.
