Hello Everyone. I posted something similar on TLS and got some great support, but just wanted some more opinions.
Took the LSAT, messed up an LG and got a 165. I am planning on retaking.
My dream school is GULC and I wanted to know what LSAT I'd need to be admitted RD, and what LSAT would most likely get me a comfortable amount of money.
I'll have a 3.5x when I apply in Fall, but transcript isn't the greatest. Only soft really is working full time to pay for school. I'm AA female.
Thanks for any replies.

You should be fine for GULC.  In fact, I think you have a shot at all of the t14 except maybe Yale.  Apply to all of them.  You'll probably get into CCN down.  Maybe H.

I would be more likely to say N, then MVP on down. Chicago seems to frown on the 3.6 GPA or lower, regardless of LSAT score, as does Columbia. I honestly don't think HYS would be in the picture either (mayyyyyyyybe S if you jump through their picky "show us you really want to be here" hoops) because of the GPA. If you did get in to one of those, I'd say it would be a WL --> accept with a 3.5x/165.

That sounds about right.  But the OP should still apply to all of them.

Just checking in. The old board and members are certainly missed.  :( I've been in touch with a few, majority of whom have either finished law school or are working as attorneys now. Some have also gotten married and started families.

Thanks to A. and the few remaining old heads who are still around to help answer questions and impart career advice to new comers. It really is appreciated!


PS: I've visited TLS and it certainly is no comparison to LSD. Can't believe that's where folks congregate nowadays.  :o

I am a black female undergrad student. I took the Oct. LSAT and made a 148. My cumulative gpa is a 2.99, with my degree granting gpa a 3.70. ( I went to a few 2yr schools, a long time ago, and my grades weren't so hot back then). Im involved in school organizations, president of one and a member of another. My question is, is there any chance of me getting into a school in the Atlanta, Ga area (please do not say John Marshall) or should I study and retake the LSAT next year and wait to apply for the fall 2012 school year? Any thoughts?

Thanks
