Predicablility of Admission

Predicablility of Admission
« on: July 17, 2004, 11:48:01 AM »
I would like to hear about different experiences with admissions.  When an LSAT score and GPA are about the median for the school one is applying to, what does that mean.  Does it mean you're competitive -- like a 50/50 chance.  Or is it better or worse than that. 
Specifically, I'm a senior at the Univ. of Michigan.  My GPA is about a 3.4 and my lsat is a 158.  I'm interested in some different law schools like Seton Hall, Rutgers - Newark, Brooklyn, Hofstra, and Temple in Philly.  I'm trying to assess my chances of getting in to one of these.  Even though a 158 is fairly respectable, I feel like I kind of bombed compared to my practice tests.  Should I take the LSAT over?  Or will I have a good chance at the Law Schools listed above?
Thanks to anyone who'll offer advice.
