Thanks, I was (and still am) a little worried about that GPA, but am still going for a lot of the T14 anyway, so i'm glad to hear other ppl think I have a shot. scully, I snooped and saw that you're gpa was a BROWN gpa, which I think makes it a little better than mine  ;D But i'll be crossing my fingers anyways!

what are my chances

Hello All,
 I am a little worried about the possibility of getting into law school. I took the lsat and i got a disappointing 145.  I have a 3.4 GPA. I am a black female. Does anyone have any suggestions of schools I should apply to?? Thanks

Hi guys,

I'm new to the application process. I have been reading some of the threads and I have a question.
Do schools really add 10 points to your LSAT if you are an URM?
What about the GPA?

Thanks

A.

This question is inane.  Make A's, study your ass off for the LSAT, and come back when you know your scores.

You should be good for 15-25.  Throw some apps at the lower t14 too.  There is no magical rule for URM admissions.

Hello everyone. This is my first post. I've  looked at medians and 25th/75th percentiles to get a pretty good idea where I'm competitive. However, I am having trouble determining where I can realistically expect a full tuition scholarship. ( A stipend would be great too).

My info:
3.5 GPA, 164 LSAT
Excellent Resume (legal internship, several other internships, part time W/E through college, extensive nonprofit work)
Okay recommendations
International student (so federal loans are not an option)
Black/ URM

So where could I get a good scholarship? Thanks for taking the time to answer :D

You should get money at UVA down.  Not sure where full tuition would kick in.
