Chances for acceptance or lack thereof?
« on: February 17, 2005, 01:08:48 AM »
Greetings,

I have applied to the following schools, and was wondering if anyone knew the chances of being accepted, or as to any other possibilities that might be more feasable considering my situation. I currently have a 3.48 GPA and a 149 LSAT. I'm not currently considering retaking (for this year) unless things are that hopeless. My list of schools thus far includes:

Case Western Reserve University
University of Minnesota
Hamline University
Duquesne University
University of Pittsburgh
Valparaiso University
Ave Maria
University of Pennsylvania
Cleveland State University

Am I shooting too high with these choices, and would there be any others that are more feasable? I've worked extensively on preparing my application, but am still a bit nervous. :)

Also, how much do law schools look positively/poorly on age? I'm nineteen.

Thanks. :)

Hi Coral :) If you go to lsac.org, there's a link that can tell you approximate chances for success (http://officialguide.lsac.org/search/cgi-bin/lsatgpa.asp). A slightly more user friendly but not always working link is http://www.chiashu.com/lsat.html.  Hope this helps!
