Thanks for the advice. I graduated from UNC in 2003 and majored in econ. I have been getting "apply everywhere" from a lot of people but that is going to be very expensive. Does anyone know how and when schools decide to give you a application fee waiver? Do they look at your LSAT only or work experience as well? I don't know if I can explain away my grades but I did work while in school so I will mention that. I feel like my post college work experience is solid = worked for Sen. Edwards Senate office for 2 years and now as a legislative analyst at lobbying firm in DC. Hopefully this will be enough to make up for my low grades. I know this sounds crazy but does anyone think it makes sense to retake the lsat and try to move up to a 177 range. 3.2/177 looks a lot better than 3.2/171
If I keep posting on this site at work, I may be looking for a job too. I want to stay involved in democratic politics as well as practice. I would like to do work in a field where I can make a difference and really help people, and not just line my pockets.
According to lawschoolnumbers.com, a Black female with a 3.3/161 can get into Harvard, Stanford, Columbia and Georgetown. The numbers and results for non-urms seems to be a lot different. Either thest people are lying, or I need to stop worrying so much about my stats. Is it possible that it's true, a minority has a good chance of getting in with these low #'s?
