Black male 3.2 gpa 162 LSAT from State U. Average Softs. Immigrant; family left because of political instability. Where should I apply? I'm aiming for 15-20; maybe throw in a T-14 app or two
I'll join the fray. 3.2 174. After dropping out for three years and transferring schools have averaged a 3.9 over my last 74 credit hours (While working 35 hours per week). Some decent softs: Military Experience, currently tutor Chinese immigrants in English, participated in several short term missions trips in Egypt and Tunisia. School leadership positions and I've worked as a Bailiff and for the US. Dept of Homeland Security Office of Civil Rights. Looking to blanket the entire T14 sans Yale. Top choice is Stanford.
2.8 gpa (finished school in 2006, but technically graduated Summer 2009), taking LSAT Sept. 26th, worked the past 3 years (mortgage and insurance), earned 4 yr. scholarship (D1), lots of extracurricular activities (started my own non-profit org). What kind of LSAT score do I need for Howard?
I just emailed the Dean of Admissions for GW. I asked her among other questions what schools she thinks I should apply to given that I'm black (didn't put it so bluntly)with 158/3.11. She said 50-80,...with 30-50 being reaches. What do you guys think of this? I'm getting widely differing opinions on what i should be applying to.

Apply to the entire t-14 and then throw some apps to schools that you're interested in between 15-30.
