A few tier threes/fours to consider
« on: May 26, 2005, 02:02:54 AM »
Hi there,

I'm considering a few tier three/fours for Sept. 2006 admissions.  My stats are 3.0 GPA and a 150 LSAT.  While I am planning to rewrite the LSAT, I would like to know what my chances are at the following schools given my current GPA and LSAT (e.g., 70-80% chance of getting in, 60-70% chance, etc.):

U. of Idaho
U. of Montana
U. of North Dakota
U. of South Dakota
U. of Wyoming
U. of Nebraska

If you know more about these schools, I would sure like to hear your comments!

Thanks for your help!

Try this:

You should probably adjust your GPA down because LSAC will, especially if you've dropped, withdrawn, or repeated classes.

Are you URM? Looking at the schools you applied to, i don't think you are. Anyway, if you are then you may have a very decent shot at getting into most of those schools. You still have a shot anyway, but there will be a lot of other applicants with those same/similar numbers at those schools, so you need something to distance yourself from them. You are doing the right thing by retaking the LSAT, but the other key to having a good admissions cycle is to APPLY EARLY. I made the mistake of waiting till feburary to apply. Make sure you take the LSAT real early and have all of your letters and transcript and personal statement ready by september. If you do that, you increase your chances a bit.

I know the state in which each school is located, if that will help.

NO. Lane was right. I asked for the "capitals", not "capitols".

He gave you capitals, too. Capitols are the buildings, capitals are the places.
